ATIKU ABUBAKAR BLOWS HOT!!!FOOLS IGBOS AGAIN ON RESTRUCTURING, SAYS 1963 CONSTITUTION RECOGNIZED NIGERIA’S DIVERSITY…SEE

Christian Rowland writing for ODOGWU MEDIA...Former Vice President and Chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has said Nigeria’s republican constitution of 1963 carefully considered Nigeria’s character as a diverse nation and chose the secular path in order to accommodate the diversity and peaceful coexistence.

He said this amid the ongoing agitations for restructuring ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Atiku, who was speaking in Abuja at the formal presentation of the book, titled “Constitutional Misconception of Secularism: Implications for Politics and Religion” cautioned Nigerians to be mindful of others who may not think, act or believe in what they do, saying the country’s diversity ought to be her strength and not otherwise.

The ex-Vice President, represented by the former Speaker of the Plateau state House of Assembly, George Daika, said: “Let me, however, use this opportunity to remind us all that at this delicate moment in our nation’s history – with separatist agitations, militancy of the religious and secular varieties, calls for restructuring, and jostling for future elections, we should all be mindful of and sensitive to the feelings and preferences of those who may not think the way we think, the way we speak or worship, the way we worship or belong to the same political party as us.

“Our diversity ought to be our strength and, together, we can still build the Nigeria of our dreams.
“Our first constitution carefully considered Nigeria’s character as a diverse nation and chose the secular path in order to accommodate the diversity and peaceful coexistence.

The Benue State governor, Dr Samuel Ortom, who was in attendance observed that, two things matters in Nigeria today; religion and politics.

He reiterated that, if we get it right in religion and politics, then, there is no stopping Nigeria’s greatness.
Also speaking at the ocassion, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, John Cardinal Onayekan frowned at the extent to which Nigerian has taken politics and religion.

The clergyman said, most times, the behaviours of Nigerians towards politics and religion is borne out of misconception. He further contended that, 90 percent of Nigerians practice religion wrongly.
