During and after the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly Elections. Nigeria has been everything but calm. A former senator, Shehu Sani stated that in a nation divided by religion and ethnicity, there can never be unity.
Various issues have risen regarding the conduct and outcome of the election. Among many are; the failure of the INEC body to electronically transmit results, Thug invasions, Election rigging, and the face-off between the APC and some of the rival parties.
Mr. Shehu earlier today, took to his verified Twitter account the statement, 'The National Flag, The National Anthem, and The National Pledge cannot unite a people, systematically divided by religion and ethnicity, for political expediency.'
This has also stirred numerous reactions, as various citizens troop into the comments section to share their views. A user by the name Lilian Pilaku commented, 'Our Government believes, unity is achieved through TV and radio jingles, laughable. Unity is achieved through acceptance, inclusion, and treating everyone fairly.'
