Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians to live peacefully and shun religion violence.
Speaking during a lecture on tolerance between Christians and Muslims in Abeokuta, Ogun State, he added that the two religion are the same and not different in any way.
“If we can live in peace with our neighbour at the local, community, state, national, continental and global level, what a different world it would have been.
“Let me tell you, I went to Ile Kewu (Arabic school). In my village, mosque and church were built close to each other. When I was growing up in the village, there was no difference and I started going to Qur’anic school. What drove me away was koboko (horsewhip).
“But what I imbibed in the village when I was growing up is what I have practiced all my life.”
