The Catholic bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Hassan Kukah says Nigeria is better as a united country and those calling for the break up of the nation should desist.
Kukah said the diversity of Nigeria should be seen as a blessing, noting that God made no mistake in creating Nigeria the way it is.
The clergy stated that the diverse cultures, religions, and ethnicities should be an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
He made the observation on Sunday while addressing his congregation during a service to mark his 45th anniversary as a priest and 10 years as bishop of the Sokoto Diocese.
“God did not make a mistake for making us a nation of diverse cultures, religions and ethnicities,” he said.
“I talk about Nigeria with pride because before our very eyes, God will do a great thing that we will all rejoice with.”
