The country will have so much to lose if it is divided, according to Borno Senator Ali Ndume.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Army advised those who want to see the divison of the country to desist from that and welcome things that could bring Nigeria together as a country.
In a statement issued to commemorate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration on Tuesday, July 20, Ndume made this disclosure.
The statement is titled, ‘Eid-el-Kabir: Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume felicitates with Muslims, calls for unity, tolerance among Nigerians’.
“We stand to lose a lot if we continue to dwell on what divides us rather than focus on what unites us as people.”
“Muslims should imbibe the spirit of unity, tolerance for peaceful coexistence.
“I commend all Muslims and all Nigerians for their prayers and the roles they have played in sustaining the peace, unity and development of the nation despite the numerous challenges confronting them.
