The planter of the Christ Apostolic Church, CAC (BOANERGES) Ministry, Prophet Ade Ologbonyo has declared that the ethnic diversity of Nigeria is dividing the country more than uniting it.
The cleric who posited that â€˜Nigeria is not a country, attributed the various challenges confronting the nation to the differences in ethnic values of the people that make up the country.
Ologbonyo who traced the diverse problems to the 1914 amalgamation of the country spoke in Orun Ekiti in Ise Orun local government of Ekiti State at a press conference heralding the 13th edition of the annual revival of the Ministry.
The man of God told Nigerians to return to God and seek His face in prayers, saying he is the only one that can perform the miracle that will settle the complicated cases of Nigeria.
Speaking further on the diversity, he said,
â€œWe are not compatible. Nigeria is not one country from all indications, it is a mystery we must all understand. If possible we can start by changing the name Nigeria, because our problems started from the early days of the amalgamation of the protectorates without considering our differences.
â€œOur foundation as a country is faulty and the Bible says if the foundation is faulty what can the righteous do?.
â€œWe need to go back to the drawing table and make necessary amendments that will give every tribe and region a sense of belonging. There should be a referendum for affected races to be independent so that peace can reign and the current state of bloodletting can stop.
