'Ignore your different religions and focus on Nigeria's unity', Catholic Bishop says
Most Rev’d Matthew Kukah is challenging all Nigerians to look beyond their religion, political parties and work towards the unity of this country.
According to Daily Post, the spiritual leader is urging everyone to focus on the unity of the country, rather than focusing on their religion or political parties.
In his address to the National Assembly, he advised the members to make laws that promote unity, not disunity.
“This country has gone through so much. We have shed so much blood. We are still going through the problem of Boko Haram. We are still going through the problems of Niger-Delta Avengers; we are still going through the problems of Biafra.
It saddens me to hear that politicians, again, are filled with the idea of Sharia law.
I want to call out to the members of the National Assembly. Nigeria does not belong to nobody. It does not belong to Christian. It does not belong to Muslim. It does not belong to APC, or to PDP. It belongs to all of us. Therefore, irrespective of our ethnicity, religion, social status, we all have a role to play in this country. Keeping this country united is paramount," he added.
The bishop also called on the leaders to do better for the nation.
