He applauded the Governor and people of the State for the restoration of peace, which he said had boosted economic activities in the State.
Rev. Pam told the stakeholders that the crucial meeting was for the Commission to strengthen the existing spiritual relationship with States Pilgrims Welfare Boards in the region for enduring peace in the country.
He recalled with regret the bad image the Commission was labeled with few years ago and assured that the Commission would restore stability, integrity and dignity of Christians in the country.
He commended His Holiness, Pope Francis for his sustained prayers for the restoration of lasting peace in Southern Kaduna and Nigeria at large.
