Some of the religious tensions in the country were politically motivated, President Goodluck Jonathan has said.
Jonathan spoke through the Minister for Housing and Urban Development, Ama Pepple yesterday at the launching of Faith Foundation-led programme to encourage religious reconciliation between Christians and Muslims organised by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. He said that young people in the country were being seduced by false prophets and led into the path of violence and hatred.
Founder of the foundation and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Nigerian politicians had to choose whether they wanted to be leaders or politicians.
Also speaking, the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, thanked Blair for the initiative.
