Dr Idris Musa has asked on Nigerians to love one another and co-exist peacefully in spite of their ethnic and religious differences.
“I am now 66 years and today is my 17th year on the throne; so I have every reason to thank God; it is worth celebrating.
“You can see the crowd; I thank everybody that honoured my invitation; may God reward them.
“My message to those honoured today is that we should be our brothers’ keepers.
“I am asking FCT indigenes and Nigerians to embrace one another; we should love one another and live in peace.
“We do not have any other country but Nigeria,’’ said the traditional ruler.
Musa said the Lebanese had a factory at Idu industrial park which was within Jiwa emirate.
“When I visited his factory, I discovered he employed 500 Nigerians, both men and women.
“The chairs he manufactures are exported to African countries; so, if he can do something like that in my chiefdom; I need to appreciate it.
“If he can accommodate Nigerians of every nationality there, he needs to be encouraged,’’ he said.
