Nigeria: Commission Plans Pilgrimage for Traditional Rulers

Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission wants to organise a pilgrimage for traditional rulers across the country next year.

Executive secretary of the commission, Tor Uja, announced the plan during talks with the Mai Tangale kingdom, HRH Abdu Buba Maishru, at his palace in Billeri, Gombe state.

"We will like to request your royal Majesty to coordinate the Christian traditional rulers in the North," said Uja.

He said a northern Christian traditional rulers conference next year would strengthen existing relationship.

It comes a day after the commission officially flagged off the 2017 Christian pilgrimage.

In his remarks, the Mai Tangale who is also the Chairman of Gombe State Pilgrim Welfare Board, described the flag off in Gombe state as a gospel in itself as people would now count Gombe as one of the Christian states in the north.

He added that the flag off was "an eye opener"

His Royal Majesty further explained that Tangale Kingdom was made up of four local Government areas dominated by Christians with few Muslims and they live in peace and harmony.
