Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala of Oyo State has called for mutual cooperation among all Nigerians in the effort to nip the raging sectarian crises in some parts of the country in the bud.

The governor made this call in Ibadan on Tuesday while delivering his address at the quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) meeting, held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan.

Mr Akala warned against allowing the effect of the crises to truncate the new democratic session and diminish the reputation the country has built for itself over the last few years.

“By slowing religious and communal strives to scuttle democracy and good governance, our avowed commitment to freedom at all levels will be a fluke,” he said.
