Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has appealed to the rest of Nigeria to learn about the management of ethnic and religious diversity from the South West.
The former president said this in an address at the 13th Joe-Kyari Gadzama Public Lecture with the theme: ‘Redefining Democracy: Yearnings of the Minority in a Democratic Setting,’ which was held virtually.
The former President attributed Nigeria’s current problems to its failure to properly manage its diversity in a way that gives minorities a sense of belonging.
Jonathan said, “That is the only part of Nigeria where we feel has been able to manage religion and development very well.
“So, we must look at our own unique circumstances and come up with the right form of government.”
