Wilson said the challenge of religious extremism in the northern part of Nigeria could be settled if all aggrieved parties could come to the discussion table to resolve their differences instead of taking the law into their hands.
Wilson spoke to journalists at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos when he arrived Nigeria for the Centenary celebrations of the church in Nigeria. Seventh Adventists Church arrived in Nigeria in 1914, same year Nigeria amalgamated.
He advised political leaders to apply biblical principles in resolving religious extremism, adding that God does not support the use of violence and violation of prescribed laws as a way of resolving political or religious differences among people.
He said: “I will ask that the officials of government both at state and federal levels look carefully to the bible and to spiritual principles of how to resolve differences. God does not wish people to settle differences in ways which will tear things apart, but rather to bring reconciliation and recognising the fact that there are those who may not wish to come to the table. That, of course, will have to be dealt with by the government.”
