Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has expressed that Nigeria can never divide and that the current challenges facing the country can be resolved through dialogue.
Bello expressed this optimism in Umuahia when he paid a courtesy call on Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia state.
Governor Bello noted by the grace of God the country will overcome its “differences and skirmishes.”
“I have always maintained this position that Nigeria can never divide; we can have differences, skirmishes here and there which by the grace of God, we shall overcome them and Nigeria will remain together.
“We in Kogi State look at everyone as a Nigerian first before we talk about where you come from or even your religion. Though tongues may differ, we are one. In Kogi state, we don’t emphasise on what divides us but we emphasise more on what unites us.
“I want each and everyone of us to continue to preach peace, unity and togetherness. Yes, some sections of this country may be agitated due to one thing or the other but it is only on roundtable such agitations can be best resolved.
“I call on all my brothers that feel aggrieved about the state of this country to sit on the table and pass through the proper channels to resolve them.”
He also commended his host, Ikpeazu for the warm reception he received in Abia when he came to the state for the burial of one of his friends’ mother.
