President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that Nigeria would not break-up but that instead it would continue to remain one indivisible country notwithstanding the many challenges facing her as a nation.
President Jonathan said this on Sunday at an inter-denominational church service to mark his one year of his administration in Abuja.
“I want assure all Nigerians that Nigeria cannot be disintegrated by any form and the present terror attacks across the country came as a thief in the night,” the president said amidst near total condemnation of his performance in office so far.
While assuring that he was committed to ensuring that the country reach its full potential, the president called on all Nigerians to continue in prayer, as his administration strives to satisfy the needs of every Nigerian.
Former primate of the Anglican Church, Rev Peter Akinola, who delivered the sermon, warned the president against negotiating with the Boko Haram.
“You open yourself to ridicule if you open dialogue to a group that has made the country ungovernable. Don’t treat them with kid gloves, he said.
The preacher also reminded the president that he was voted by Nigerians to be commander-in-chief, as such he is now general of generals, so he should send packing from his government all political jobbers and predators that hang around the Presidency.
He argued that the size of the administration was too large and should, therefore, be trimmed.
