Don’t divide Nigerians with religion, cleric warns politicians
Unuefe Ikhiuwu, General Overseer, Christ Chosen Church of God, has called for peaceful coexistence among different religions and tribes to enable Nigeria to achieve its full potential.
Mr Ikhiuwu made the call in Abuja on Sunday during a combined thanksgiving service to mark the end of a weeklong tour of the church facilities in Abuja, Kaduna and Niger.
The clergyman, who frowned at negative comments by some politicians, said that even though tribe and tongue may differ, Nigerians are one.
“Religion should not divide us,” Mr Ikhiuwu said. “I pray for the unity of all believers and everyone. We should live in peace whether Christians or Muslims.”
The cleric said political leaders in the country must unite Nigerians and provide them with the dividends of democracy.
He said this would give every Nigerian a sense of belonging and ready to support those in authority to improve the country.
“By the grace of God, I pray that every Nigerian should be supported by those in authority to make Nigeria better than how the present administration met it,” the cleric said.
He added that all Nigerians must collectively work for peace in the country.
