Former President Goodluck Jonathan has added his voice to the discussions and opinions about agitations being championed by sections in Nigeria.
Speaking while he hosted the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Former Ministers’ Forum in Abuja on Monday, June 26, 2017, Jonathan said Nigeria’s unity was very important.
Channels Television reports that Jonathan said Nigeria’s unity is paramount.
The former president appealed to all Nigerians to see the country’s unity as one that should not be toyed with.
He was quoted as saying: “The unity of the country is paramount, we cannot develop as a nation.
“No matter how people demonstrate, no president can do magic if there is so much tension in the land.”
According to Jonathan, no country can develop under an atmosphere of insecurity and threats to its existence.
“Immediately there is a sense of insecurity in any country investors will pull back and when investors pull back, then the economy will drop.
“What improves the economy is confidence and what makes investors have that confidence is peace.
“We should all pray and work towards that peace and that is the only way we can grow the economy as a nation.”
