The Baptist Conference President explained that the diversity in terms of religion, ethnicity and political affiliations must be served as strength of the nations such as Nigeria.

He added that God during creation understands the essence of peaceful coexistence among his creatures irrespective of their beliefs and the tribe.

Religious leaders, according to him, must also refrain from making inciting statements capable of aggravating the already tensed situation in the country.

He felicitates with Governor Dapo Abiodun and residents in the state, especially the Baptist members in the state on the occasion of 45th anniversary of the state.

Oyeniyi, however, called on the government at all levels to ensure justice is served on every aggrieved resident.
