Nigeria’s President Jonathan Condemns Comments On Nigeria’s disintegration
President Goodluck Jonathan has called on Nigerians to rise and condemn those who question the unity of the country.
He stated that as a country, those in government and the citizens should work together if the country must attain its destination.
According to him, the country has scaled through difficult times since its amalgamation in 1914 and those who are still alive have the responsibility to reshape the country not by killing each other.
The theme for this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day is Peace and Unity.
President Jonathan noted that the gift “we (Nigerians) owe them (the fallen heroes) is the continuous unity of the country.”
He called on political leaders to embrace issues that unite the country as he also urged Nigerians to condemn all talks about disintegration.
The Church service attracted Christians from all denominations in commemoration of heroes who gave their lives in the World Wars and the Nigerian Civil War.
The day’s sermon which was delivered by President of Nigeria’s Baptist convention, Reverend Supo Ayokunle, was on the need for Nigerians to embrace legacies left behind by the fallen heroes, which are care, provision, Fear of God, faith in God, humility and love.
The service was attended by the Senate President, some ministers, past and serving government officials and members of the diplomatic corps. Channels
