The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said this in London today.
According to him, anyone indulging in such an act is only demarketing Nigeria globally and that will not be condoned.
He added that there is nothing like religious persecution in Nigeria.
His words, “We are aware that some people are demarketing the country and there is no length they have not gone to do this.
“But the honest truth is that there is nothing like religious persecution in Nigeria.
“There is no state in Nigeria that has Muslims without Christians.
“We must be very careful not to demarket our country simply because we have not been able to get what we want,”
We know what some people did at the run-up to the last general election to ensure that this administration did not succeed.
“Since we won the election, we have called on everybody to come together to support this administration.
“Any attempt to demarket this country will have dire consequences on everybody; whether you are. Christian or Muslim.
“It is important for everyone to know that this country will continue to exist, even after 2023.
“Spreading falsehood will not be in our interest and we all know that religion is a very sensitive issue in Nigeria,”
On support from other nations to end terrorism, “We cannot be left to ourselves. It took the whole world to flush out terrorists from Syria and we need that kind of thing in fighting Boko Haram in Nigeria.
“If you noticed, the entire Sahel is unstable today. Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Cameroon, and Niger.
“This is not the time for the international community to withdraw its support.
“Terrorism is a global issue, and we all have a common destiny.”
