Pass semicolon as a parameter

I want to create a script that passes a parameter that will be used as variable for a delimiter.

I am having problems passing semicolon as a parameter in my bash script.

I am a newbie but have read that semicolon colon used to separate multiple commands.

Can anyone help me?
