Borno lawmaker, Senator Ali Ndume, has issued a warning that Nigerians will have a lot to lose if the country is divided.
Senator Ndume, Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, called on those who are agitating for division to desist and embrace things that could unite Nigeria as a country.
He made the appeal in a statement he issued on Tuesday, July 20, to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
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.
