Security committee recommends Muslim-Christian marriages to prevent Nigeria’s breakup

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, says he will on Thursday present the recommendations of the Kaduna town hall meeting on national security to the National Economic Council, and one of its recommendations is encouraging more interreligious and inter-tribal marriages to prevent Nigeria’s breakup.

Revealing the intermarriage recommendation among others, Mr 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.”

He disclosed this in Abuja while fielding questions at a News Agency of Nigeria flagship interview programme, NANForum.
