The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, Sunday urged Nigerians to shun those calling for the nation’s disintegration and work toward the promotion of its unity.

He spoke at the inauguration of 35 classrooms at the Royal Gold Model Group of Schools and foundation laying of a Mosque in Ibadan.

“I don’t think that separating the state is the way out, but we can restructure the country in such a way that we’ll have peace and tranquillity and live in harmony.

“There’s need to unite in order to save Nigeria from disintegration,” he said.

He urged Nigerians to find a way of reconciling one another and forget about the past in order to move the country forward.

Alaafin commended the proprietor of the school, Taofeek Akewugbagold, for promoting unity among Nigerians.

Akewugbagold, called on Muslims not to discriminate against those practicing other religions.

In his lecture, Almufty of Ilorin, Shelkh Sulaimon Onikijipa, admonished Muslims to abide by the teachings of the Holy Quran and stop looking for miracle where it does not exist. (NAN)
