Nigeria will not break up – Jonathan



President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday reiterated that the country would not break up despite its numerous challenges.
Speaking when some Christians in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) paid him Easter homage at the State House in Abuja, Jonathan said those who think the nation would break into pieces should perish the thought because it would never happen.

The president also reiterated that the present administration was changing security approach to be able to bring to an end the current insurgency in the country.

He said the Nyanya motor park bombing showed that Nigerians are united against Boko Haram, stressing that there is hope the country would soon come out of the current security challenges.

He said: “Just like Christ told the people when he was alive that in the world, you will have tribulations but there is hope for you. Today we are marking that resurrection. Yes, as a nation, we are having tribulations but surely, Nigeria has hope. Surely, we will overcome these tribulations.
The president commended Nigerians for their prayers, and assured that government would not renege on its promises to develop the country.
