Former Minister of Information, Prof. Jerry Gana was a guest minister where he delivered a sermon at the St. Matthew’s Church, Maitama, Diocese of Abuja (Anglican Communion), in Abuja on Sunday.

The professor touched on so many issues plaguing the nation during the sermon and also warned northerners who want Nigeria to break up of the consequence.

The 71 year old who served under President Olusegun Obasanjo as the  Minister of Information also criticized Northern youths over the ultimatum given to Igbos to leave their region.

“They think when it comes to break-up, we will go along with the North. We have already told them that if they allow this country to break up, we are not going with the North.

“We are staying where we are. So, just take notice. If it comes to that, we will tell you that you are Arewa and we are ‘Middle-Belters,” he said. 

He also used the medium to call out key members of the northern state who supported the youth saying “One of them, who also spoke is a former vice-chancellor. I thank God he didn’t sign my certificate. My own was signed by Prof. Ishaya Audu.

“How can a man of that stature, of that status, of that level of leadership, says he supports the youths in Kaduna to give other legitimate citizens, an order to go? Who are you? Who says that?

“In this country, there are no second-class citizens. We are all first class. We are all sons and daughters of this land and that was why I decided to call a conference of all the minorities from 14 states and we had to state in clear words that the quit notice was totally unconstitutional. This is our home,” Gana said.
