The Emir, who was represented by the District Head of Nasarawa, Babba Dan-Agundi, said the ministry would help promote religious tolerance and understanding among Nigerians.
He said, “Peace is an indispensable aspect of creatures on the planet, and there is a compelling need for it to be safeguarded.”
