Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, says a townhall meeting organised in Kaduna state has called for more interreligious and inter-tribal marriages to prevent Nigeria’s breakup.
Mohammed said he will on Thursday present the recommendations of the Kaduna town hall meeting on national security to the National Economic Council.
He disclosed this in Abuja while fielding questions at a News Agency of Nigeria flagship interview programme, NANForum.
Mohammed said; “Another interesting thing that was agreed upon was that under Nigeria’s constitution, Article 15, 3C has provision encouraging Nigerians to intermarry.
“Christians are encouraged to marry Muslims, Itsekiri should marry Hausa, Yoruba should marry Igbo, when you have that kind of intermarriage, it becomes more difficult to break the country.”
