The Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, Right Reverend Dr. Alex Ibezim on Monday, said the prediction that Nigeria will disintegrate by 2015, had failed, adding that the unity of the country now unquestionable.

Ibezim in his 2015 Easter message at St. Mathew’s Anglican Church Nibo, Awka, noted that God has taken charge of affairs of Nigeria, urging politicians and political officer holders to re-unite and embrace peace for development of Nigeria.

According to the cleric, “2015 Presidential election has come and gone and their prediction that Nigeria would disintegrate did not come to pass because God is in control of affairs of Nigeria. We should pray for peace, love and unity of the country and in all we do we emulate Jesus Christ so that Jesus Christ will bring peace in our homes and Country at large.

‘’Nigeria is no longer a sleeping giant but has set pace in the democracies of the world with President Jonathan conducting the most credible , free and fair election in which he even lost to the opposition and accepted defeat in good faith to avoid bloodshed. The election was a bloodless revolution so to speak against what was predicted for Nigeria,” he said.
