He said: “It was an unwilling union, forcefully consummated by Lord Frederick Lugard. Since then, it had been uneasy, with grave suspicion rifling through the polity. It was not helped by the colonial masters themselves, who played one ethnic nationality against the other, to serve their own interests.

“These tensions spiked in recent times, particularly with the advent of democracy, in which people could make utterances, however indecorous or divisive they may be. The security challenges are enormous.

''Insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, communal strife, criminality generally. These are truly dire times, and as the president has said, they are results of the corruption, decay and neglects of the past.

He said the government was not overwhelmed by the issue of kidnapping and armed robbery, adding that the challenges were being tackled, and that they would eventually be overcome.

According to him, ''Nigeria is greater than the challenges, no matter the hidden hostile hands that are encouraging them. Nigeria has never been without social and ethnic tensions. That is due to the nature of our union, which was a forceful one in 1914.
