The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Kaduna State, Reverend John Joseph Hayab stressed that the biggest problem hindering the progress, unity and development of the country is the lack of justice.
Instead, he said divisions have been created along religious, ethnic and sectoral lines, making it difficult for Nigerians to see themselves as a single entity in all spheres of life.
Speaking on NTA’s “Good morning Nigerians” show on the role of young people, the CAN state president noted that Nigeria has to admit that it went wrong at some point.
“If you want to get out of these divisions that we created in Nigeria, we have to admit where we went wrong, was it like this before? Even with the civil war, was there no sense of unity in northern and southern Nigeria? Efforts have been put in place to unite Nigeria and bring people together. “
He added: “What has gone wrong that today in Nigeria everyone is talking about their tribe, their religion, their section, themselves and their private identity, not to mention of the unity of Nigeria and the way forward. ”
He noted that Nigeria’s ancestors sacrificed much of their lives to make the country one, adding that failure to tell the truth about the wrongs done is the reason ethnic tension continues to grow throughout the country. Nigeria.
He lamented that in the country Nigerians are creating divisions among themselves, dividing along ethnic and religious lines, to deliberately cover up the harm they have done to the people as a result of the poor governance they have given to Nigerians. by the way they stole wealth from the countryside.
“We should see our problems as a collective challenge that we all need together to solve it and find a way to solve it, but unfortunately we are starting to use ethnicity and religion to divide us.”
He noted that the Global Peace Foundation in Nigeria preaches that human beings are one family under God but most religious preachers are not honest because they preach peace in public but say differently in secret.
“We must learn to embrace each other and walk together as brothers and sisters and as members of one family for the country to move forward in all aspects of life.
