Borno senator, Ali Ndume, has warned that Nigerians have a lot to lose if the country is divided.
Ndume, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, urged those who want disunity and division to stop and embrace things that could unite Nigeria as a country.
He made the appeal in a statement he issued on Tuesday, July 20, to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
The statement is titled, ‘Eid-el-Kabir: Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume felicitates with Muslims, calls for unity, tolerance among Nigerians’.
“We stand to lose a lot if we continue to dwell on what divides us rather than focus on what unites us as people.”
"Muslims should imbibe the spirit of unity, tolerance for peaceful coexistence.
"I commend all Muslims and all Nigerians for their prayers and the roles they have played in sustaining the peace, unity and development of the nation despite the numerous challenges confronting them.
