Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, argued on Sunday that Nigeria was not created by God in error, adding that those agitating for a split were ignorant of God’s plans for the country.

The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra have been agitating for the breakup of Nigeria in recent years, triggering some threats and counter-threats from other parts of the country.

Speaking during a thanksgiving service on Sunday, at His Elect Christian Assembly Church, Nyanya, Abuja, Dogara said God who created Nigeria has good plans for her people.

“Those who think Nigeria is a mistake, it may be because they don’t know the purpose. But if you want to know the purpose of a thing, you have to go back to the manual, and who puts the manual together? It’s the manufacturer, so I would challenge them to go back to the manufacturer of Nigeria, who is God, so that we can get the manual for Nigeria.

“If we were a mistake, maybe during the first civil war, this country would have disintegrated but God decided to keep this country one and God has never made a mistake,” he stated.

The Speaker argued that for the country to have survived the civil war means that there is a purpose for the nation, and  that “until the destiny of this nation is realised, nothing will happen to Nigeria.”
