The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun is confident that Nigeria will neither experience another civil war nor break-up.
Speaking on Wednesday while receiving the League of Imams and Alfas in the state at his Iperu country home, the governor declared that the socio-economic challenges confronting the country will also be eventually surmounted.
While admitting that the country was going through a difficult time owing to insecurity and other challenges, he expressed the faith that Nigerians would overcome the situation in the end.
Governor Abiodun called on Nigerians not to give up, but continue to have faith and trust in God, saying no problem is too big for God to solve.
“This country will not break into two; nothing will happen to us in this country, we will not go into civil war, the unity of this country is non-negotiable, God will give us peace in this country, He will give us rest,” he said.
“I have a mountain-moving faith in God because He alone can do the impossible he said. As a government we will try our best, please continue to pray for us.”
Abiodun emphasised the need for Nigerians to unite and fight their common enemies as the diversity of the country remains her strength.
He also sued for religious tolerance among adherents of different faiths, admonishing Nigerians to imbibe the virtues of Prophet Ibrahim who was regarded as the Father of Faith by having absolute trust and faith in God.
The governor explained that his administration in the last two years has been fair to all irrespective of religious beliefs, adding projects had been executed in each of the 236 wards of Ogun in line with the inclusive approach of his administration.

Tokyo 2020: Ese Brume Wins Nigeria’s First Medal
Nigeria has its first medal of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after Ese Brume, in the early hours of Tuesday, claimed a bronze medal after finishing third in the women’s long jump event.
Brume leapt 6.97 metres with her very first jump to claim bronze behind second-placed Brittany Reece of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany.
It is Nigeria’s first track and field medal at the Olympics since 2008 when Okagbare won a silver medal in Beijing. It also makes the long jump the first individual event to give Nigeria three medals at the Olympics with Chioma Ajunwa’s gold at the Atlanta ‘96 Olympics topping Okagbare’s silver from 2008 and Brume’s bronze.
Brume also joins Okagbare and Glory Alozie as the only Nigerians to win individual medals at both the Worlds and the Olympics.
On Tuesday, at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, Brume and Reese swapped top spot a number of times and both looked set to claim gold and silver until Mihambo, with her very last jump, leapt 7.00m to add the Olympic title to the world title she won in Doha two years ago.
Mihambo started well, taking the lead on her first attempt with a jump of 6.83m.
But she was instantly overtaken by Brume with a leading jump of 6.97m which set the standard in the first of six attempts.

BBNaija: I’ve No Problem With Saga Sucking My Wife’s Breast -Tega’s Husband Reacts
The husband of BBNaija’s Tega has come to her defense after Nigerians dragged her for allowing fellow male housemate, Saga to suck her nipples during their truth and dare game.
Tega got dragged by most Nigerians after a viral video showing Saga sucking her nipple during their truth and dare game even though she’s a married woman.
However, her husband sees nothing wrong with the act.
A post from Tega’s husband indicates that he isn’t worried about what his wife did by allowing another man to suck her nipple on national TV as he defended her, saying it’s what he signed up for.
According to him, “My wife Tega is an actress and if what she did was a movie scene, she would have done more than what we saw hence encouraging individuals to subscribe to Show Max and get more than what we see.
Recall that Tega once said that her husband has restricted her to only cruise with men in the Biggie house and nothing more.
According to her, her husband permitted her to do everything on the reality show but should be wary of anything that would come in between their marriage.
But the story is not the same with the event of Sunday night.
