There’s nothing Nigeria can't achieve as a nation as long as we can put aside our religious differences - President Jonathan
| December 09, 2012
Speaking during a gospel musical show, "The Experience’’, organised by the House on the Rock church, held at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos, President Goodluck Jonathan asked Nigerians to put aside all religious differences and strive to build one great and united nation. Speaking via a recorded video that was projected onto a screen at the venue, President Goodluck Jonathan said, “There’s nothing we cannot accomplish as a nation as long as we can put aside our religious differences. The road ahead demands great sacrifices but there is no shortcut to greatness. This is an evidence that the Nigeria we dream of can be achieved" He also asked Nigerians to keep praying for the country and added, “As long as there are committed Nigerians praying for our leaders, there shall be success.’’ Gen. Yakubu Gowon, a former Head of State, led the congregation in prayers and also said, “What is happening in the north bleeds my heart. I thought after the bloodshed we’ve had over the years, we will not have any more but sadly we are still having it. Prayers are better than guns and weapons,” This was the 7th edition of House on the Rock's "The Experience’’ gospel musical show.

Our greatest problem is not about our religious differences but the celebration of mediocrities. Most government functionaries possess far lower knowledges to the paper qualifications they have.

Think of Messrs Nasir El-Rufai, Charles Soludo, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Oby Ezekwesili, Niki Tobi, Attahiru Jega, etc and my various criticisms of their policies. Think of why NNPC, PHCN, etc have continued to degenerate.

Think of why Boko Haram, Niger Delta Militants, etc remained unbeatable for so long. Think of various military generals, admirals and air marshalls (serving and retired) without war experience.

Think of professor who plagiarise, students who buy grades or cheat at exams, politicians who rig elections, billionare business men who swindle other Nigerians, etc. God save Nigeria.
