Governor Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers state has said that Nigerians don’t need the Bible or Qur’an if they imbibe the virtue of humanity as a religion in itself.
The Cross Rivers state governor made the statement when giving a speech at the kick-off of the grand finale of the 2019 Calabar Carnival which was themed ‘Humanity’, The Cable reports.
Ayade explained that humans need to change the way they relate with each other to make room for a better society.
He said humanity is the greatest religion on earth because it preaches love, kindness and unity. Ayade noted that humanity can move people to show love to their fellow humans even without the Bible or Qur’an.
"As we leave here today, if we don’t learn anything, let us learn that humanity is the greatest religion. With humanity, you don’t need your Bible or Qur’an because, with it, you will show love to your fellow men that need it,” he said.
“I speak with a lot of agony, melancholy, frustration, and pain. Whether you are rich, poor, tall, short, black or white; humanity does not know the difference because it breaks all barriers."
Ayade stated that God created man to be equal and peaceful, but that man has become animalistic in the course of existence.
