“Those who have predicted that Nigeria will break up by the turn of the century when the country will be marking its centenary anniversary will be disappointed because Nigeria will continue to remain one indivisible entity”.

The delegation led by the vice president, Namadi Sambo, were in the presidential villa to congratulate the president for joining them to fast and they also prayed for the unity of the country.

The president  said that he cannot imagine a Nigeria without muslims or Christians, he also told his visitors that  he will do his best to reposition the country urging Nigerians  to use the positives that accrue from their diversity be they Christians or muslims.

President Jonathan urged them to continue to pray for peace not only in the country but all over the world as that will be the bases for true development.
