Former Minister of Information and Culture, Prof Jerry Gana, has said Nigeria will not disintegrate despite its many challenges.
Gana predicated his remark on the fact that Nigeria as an entity is “an idea of God and he will uphold the country.”
The former Minister said this during the convocation lecture titled, “Building a culture of academic excellence in Nigerian universities” at Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo State, on Thursday.
He said, “I don’t believe in the notion that this country will break up. Nigeria will never break up. This is an idea of God and he will uphold the country. Nigeria is one of the most powerful countries of the world, that’s why the devil is fighting us.
“All we need is sustainable policies and leadership that will lead the country aright and I see God bringing that about soon in the country.
“There are many Nigerians who are passionate and believe in the country. There are many experts that the country is blessed with and they will soon take charge of the country.”
Commenting on the challenges of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Gana said stakeholders were working towards reconciling aggrieved members of the party.
“I am a politician. I appreciate the PDP and I am sure we shall use the party to solve Nigeria’s problem and the rest will be history,” he said.
