"We have never been this divided as a people. The divisions along ethnic, religious and regional lines have potentials of destabilizing our country and undermining our hard-earned democracy. Instead of building the Nigerian nation, we are busy busy retreating to our ethnic, religious and regional cocoons."

The call for peaceful coexistence

The Senator noted that inter-ethnic and inter-religious dialogue is critical to a better understanding of people's differences and helpful to forging common grounds because, 'we need each other to survive in this increasingly hard and harsh world, as 'cooperation is key to surviving unfriendly economic climate.'

He prayed to the Almighty Allah to reward the sacrifices made by the nation's Muslims through fasting, and shower them with abundant blessings, 'being peace to troubled communities', while renewing their faith in Him.
