Popular singer 2Face Idibia led an eight-man delegation to Sokoto, in the north-west of Nigeria on a two-day peace campaign.
2Face, his wife, Annie Idibia, Sound Sultan, Efe Omorogbe and others led a campaign against religious intolerance in northern Nigeria.
The group visited Sokoto state for a Peace Campaign organised by 2face Idibia foundation ( A Million Voices For Peace) in collaboration with Voices Of Peace from the Sahara and the Justice, Development & Peace Commission (JDPC), Catholic Diocese of Sokoto.
This comes weeks after his conferment as Peace Ambassador for the Ooni of Ife’s Newest peace project.
The ‘Officially blind’ singer visited Vision FM for a brief chat with the media then proceeded to visit the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Most Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah with his delegation.
He also met with both Christians and Muslims living in Sokoto. He spoke to an excited crowd on the many virtues of maintaining peace in the state especially through peaceful coexistence and religious tolerance.
In addition to his peace talks, 2Face also promised to support the fight against Polio in the state after being decorated by Polio activist, Onyinye Ralp.
