Nigeria president calls for national untiy

Goodluck Jonathan urges religious and ethnic groups to unify at conference convened to discuss country's future.

    Nearly 500 delegates representing Nigeria's various ethnic and religious groups are attending a national conference in Abuja to discuss the country's future.

    Issues on the agenda include distribution of the country's huge natural resources, unemployment and ethnic bloodshed.

    One thing President Goodluck Jonathan says should not be up for discussion is Nigeria's unity.
