Dapo Abiodun, Ogun state governor, says he is confident that Nigeria will neither break up nor experience another civil war.
Abiodun spoke when he hosted Muslim clerics at his home in Iperu on Wednesday.
The governor said Nigeria is currently going through a difficult time but will overcome the challenges.
“This country will not break into two; nothing will happen to us in this country, we will not go into civil war, the unity of this country is non-negotiable, God will give us peace in this country, He will give us rest,” Abiodun said.
He urged Nigerians not to give up but to trust in God, adding that no problem is too big for God to solve.
“I have a mountain-moving faith in God because He alone can do the impossible he said. As a government, we will try our best, please continue to pray for us,” he said.
Abiodun also enjoined Nigerians to unite and fight their common enemies “as the diversity of the country remains her strength”.
He added that in the last two years, his administration has been fair to all irrespective of religious beliefs.
