Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has further re-echoed his support for united Nigeria, pledging to continue working for unity and peace in the country. 

Speaking on Friday at the the book launch and 85th birthday of Sunday Mbang, prelate emeritus of the Methodist Church Nigeria (MCN), in Lagos, Obasanjo said the country will continue to exist, despite the challenges it is facing.

The former president noted that it will be better for the country to remain as one.

He said:  “We are here to honour somebody we should honour, and learn from him (Mbang), to show that we genuinely love and appreciate him for the service he has rendered to the Christian community in this country and world over. And to assure him that whatever happens, we will continue to work for unity, peace, security and progress of this country,”

“I know that these are things that are dear to his heart. We want to assure you that Nigeria will continue to exist, because the cost for Nigeria not to continue to exist is much more than the cost for us to make Nigeria to continue to exist.
