Senate President Lawan Ahmed has called on Nigerians to put their tribal, religious, and political affiliations aside and unite to make the nation great.
Religion is a controversial and complicated subject in religious studies with scholars failing to agree on any one definition. The term tribe is used in many different contexts to refer to a category of human social group. The predominant usage of the term is in the discipline of anthropology.
Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan is a Nigerian senator who serves as the President of the Senate of Nigeria. He represents Yobe North Constituency of Yobe State under the All Progressive Congress. His tenure as a senator started since 2007 Nigeria general election.
Ahmed made the call on Sunday during a celebration in honour of the late Chief Johnson Kalu.
He said that Nigeria have opportunity to be great in, if only they can unite irrespective of their tribe, politically and religious. If they should try and control these, Nigeria will be great and Be greater.
He said: “Nigeria is designed by the grace of God to be a nation of many people of different orientation but common purpose and destiny.”
He told them that they should try and be a leader that won’t stay away from of the people and of actions in Nigeria.
For we to also achieve all what he has said, we need to come together as one, people should put religion, tribe and gender aside, we should all unite together and let the love reign forever.
“No matter where you come from or your religion, we should all strive to unite as one Nigeria.”
