Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared  that nobody has the right to issue quit notice to other Nigerians, saying  that despite  recent social challenges, Nigeria will continue  to be united
The governor spoke on Monday  when the Rivers State Muslim Community  paid him a Sallah Homage  at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

The governor stated: “Nigeria must be one. All of us will live together.  All of us are free to  do business anywhere in the country.  Whether  you are from the North, you are free to stay here and do business.
“Nobody should threaten anybody. All of us own this country. We must be our brother’s  keepers.”

  Wike said  the unity of the country is necessary  for the rapid development of the country.
He assured the Rivers Muslim community that he would continue to sponsor them for Hajj as his administration believes in the spiritual upliftment of the people.

He said: “Government will continue to give you support, but we cannot use state resources to build a mosque.
“During the Ramadan I sent items to all the mosques in the state.  We are all worshipping  one God, even though we serve him in different ways.”

The governor said he has respect for the Muslim community  as exemplified by his invitation of the Sultan of Sokoto to participate in the Rivers at 50 celebration.  He added that he would pay a Sallah visit to the Sultan today.

Earlier, the leader of the Rivers State Muslim Community and Vice President of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Nasir Uhor, said the Rivers Muslim Community were happy with  Wike for his superlative performance.
He commended the governor  for promoting religious tolerance in the state.
