Nigeria will never divide like Sudan Did— Okogie



The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, His Eminence, Anthony Cardinal Okogie, has warned those seeking the disintegration of Nigeria nation to desist, saying such endeavour will be an exercise in futility.
The cleric, who recently returned to the country from a medical trip abroad, in a statement on Monday, urged Nigerians to work for the preservation of the nation’s unity by embracing peace and being more patriotic.
He said, “No one can divide Nigeria. The country is like the rock of Gibraltar; it was created by God through the instrumentality of the British colonial masters. Our diversity, either in tribe, ethnicity or religion, should serve as stabilising factors that would make us strong and united.
“No one can destroy what God has built. Even the Bible and Quran attest to this fact. I want to call on all agents of disunity, whoever they may be and at whatever guise, to desist forthwith from their evil machinations or face the wrought of the Almighty God.”
He expressed regret over the state of insecurity in the land, particularly the recent bombings recorded in various parts of the country, especially in Kano, Niger, Bornu, Yobe and Adamawa States.
He called on the Federal Government, particularly the security agents to intensify effort to curb the rising spate of violence across the land. He also prayed for the repose of the souls of those killed in the various bombings; praying God to grant the relatives of the deceased the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
