The Speaker, House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, today, said that he would continue to safeguard the unity of the country.
Tambuwal was speaking as the Special Quest of Honour at the closing ceremony of the National Qur’anic Recitation Competition in Dutse.
He said that the break-up of the country, being insinuated by some Nigerians, was not the best for the country, pointing out that “united, the better for us as a people.”
The speaker, who said that Southern Sudan which broke up from Sudan had been engulfed in crisis, warned Nigerians to learn a lesson from such crisis.
Earlier, in his remarks at the occasion, the Lagos State Governor, Mr Raji Fashola, urged Muslims to adhere to the teaching of the Holy Qur’an.
He explained that the Holy Qur’an contained various aspects of human life, including nurturing of children, taking care of wives and good governance, among others. [NAN]
