Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s immediate past President, has identified one of Nigeria’s major problems that are still affecting the unity of its people.
The problem, he said, is found in the nation’s inability to manage diversities, adding that to enjoy the dividends of the present democratic dispensation, it would only succeed on the mutuality of trust.
Yesterday, the former President spoke during his Foundation’s Policy Dialogue on Democracy and Unity of the State in Abuja, noting that the trust must come between the Nigerian Government and its citizens, including the different groups within a country.
He stressed that today’s nation is experiencing a significant setback, explaining that those predicaments are why both unity and corporate existence are greatly threatened.
GoodluckJonathan pointed out that Nigeria and the rest of Africa have to harness and draw strength from diversities rather than be a source of weakness.
He further emphasised the need for love, peace, hope and justice, stating that such virtues would serve as the needed weapons to tackle disunity.
