Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has called on those calling for division of Nigeria to learn from the experiences of civil war, and pray to be unified as a country.
Okowa made the statement on Sunday at a thanksgiving service organized by the Delta State House of Assembly, to mark the second anniversary of the 6th assembly.
He said, “In this time, we don’t need another war. It is time for us to think and reflect on the past and build a greater and more united country. Nigeria needs God to survive. By the grace of God, Nigeria is one and will remain as one.”
“Christians should continue to pray for the country, we don’t want to see war. It is time to re-examine ourselves, examine our homes and to think of our existence. We need to reflect on things we do as parents and what we are inculcating into our children because as parents, we must build in our children the knowledge of God for us to have a better society.”
