June 10, 2021

FORMER PRESIDENT OLUSEGUN OBASANJO, HAS CALLED ON ALL AGITATORS WHO PROMOTE DISINTEGRATION OF THE COUNTRY TO SHELVE THE IDEA AND WORK FOR THE UNITY AND ONENESS OF THE COUNTRY.


OBASANJO WHO MADE THIS KNOWN AT AN EVENT IN ABEOKUTA, STATED THAT IT IS BETTER FOR ALL ETHNIC GROUPS IN NIGERIA TO REMAIN TOGETHER.


THE FORMER PRESIDENT ADVISED THAT IT WAS BETTER FOR NIGERIA TO REMAIN AS ONE INDIVISIBLE NATION THAN FOR EACH TRIBE TO GO ITS SEPARATE WAYS.


HE SAID IT WAS A WRONG TIME FOR NIGERIA TO DISINTEGRATE AT A TIME AND AGE WHEN AFRICA WAS TRYING TO REINTEGRATE FOR POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.


HE SAID ALTHOUGH THE PRESENT SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY WAS NOT PALATABLE, CALLING FOR THE DISINTEGRATION OF THE COUNTRY WAS NOT THE SOLUTION.
