“I once served with him as a student at the University of Maiduguri and we shared the same room. So, I have known him since 1980 or so and this is a person that will never disappoint when it comes to Nigeria’s Unity, even at his personal risk to preach the unity of Nigeria and that is one thing we have to do. We are leaders in our own rights. We have to continue to pray for peace, we have to continue to pray for understanding, we need to continue to bring Nigerians closer to each other. Ordinarily most Nigerians are the people that love Nigeria. ” He said
