“This Merit award is for contribution to the growth and peaceful coexistence between the Christians and Muslims in Rivers State,”she added.
In his response, the Paramount Ruler said that his action was informed by Governor Nyesom Wike’s determination to promote peace and fight crime in the state.

The monarch, also admitted that to fight crime, one ought to ensure that peace was encouraged among the people, and not to wait until things had gone sour.
To the Muslim association, he assured it of more support on the ground of maintaining a peaceful coexistence in the state.
He said there was no wisdom in encouraging, crime, hence, the need to shun any form of crime.
Earlier, he had lauded the Muslims for the honour done him and prayed God to grant them for their heart desires in the State.
