Call for Nigeria’s breakup part of unity in diversity – Osinbajo


Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has advised Nigerians to save the energy and resources wasted on debates about division of the country.

The Vice President said Nigeria in its diversity is the kind of country God has ordained.

Osinbajo said this when he represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2017 Eid Al-Adha Lunch held inside the Presidential Villa , Abuja on Sunday.

Osinbajo said, “That nation that God has in mind is a diverse nation; diverse in resources, in ideas and in opinions.

“The kind of nation that we have, where there is an argument about something everywhere. Before you get tired of that lone argument, another one arises and before you finish with that one, there is yet another one.

“This is the type of country that God has ordained; where we have diversity of opinions and ideas- people saying their own things here and there.

“But God has also planned that this country will remain together, and that we will be a nation that is gifted just as we have the oil, the gas, and the most arable lands than most continents.

“This is a country that has all of what other countries will travel and spend money looking for the sort of resources that we have. All of the tourism resources that we have, people will travel everywhere looking for them.

“It is a nation of men and women so creative and prosperous that we will feed the entire continent and create opportunities for the world.

“All the different ethnic groups are important in that arrangement. On every ethnicity, incredible minds, brilliant and creative people doing all manner of things.

“Our energies and resources should not be spent again on debate about division. Our manifest destiny is to be a great nation, not to be a nation where we are talking about division.

“We must focus our time energies and resources on being that great nation that God has called us to be. I think we have started building that country already.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage.

This is w…
