Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Saturday, November 30th expressed confidence that it would be impossible for anybody to use religion to divide Nigeria.
The minister expressed the confidence in Lagos at the Anglican Diocese of Lagos 2019 Centenary Cultural Day and Award Ceremony. The centenary celebration had the theme: ”Stronger, Deeper and Higher”.
According to Mohammed, performances at the event by different ethnic groups in the diocese are indications that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable. “What I have seen here today has again confirmed my belief in the indivisibility of this country. These performances have shown us how much we are united, as opposed to how much we are divided.
“I want to thank the diocese for making me appreciate the fact the church is playing a very big role in uniting the nation. It is impossible for anybody under the aegis of religion to divide this country”.
He said that the celebration showed how Nigerians loved one another.
