Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has warned those calling for the disintegration of Nigeria to desist from such acts.
Obasanjo gave this warning in Makurdi over the weekend at a speaking engagement. He noted that those singing war songs were doing more harm than good.
The former president was still of the belief that Nigeria, despite the many odds, remained a great country with lots to offer individuals and countries alike.
Obasanjo would like all to see the restructuring of the country as everyone’s responsibility.
“None of us should be tired of doing our best for this country. I have confidence in Nigeria and we all should.
“Those who keep singing the songs of disunity, whether young or old, are doing this country a great disservice and should desist. And those who have led this country at any level in the past have greater responsibilities to ensure the country works, rather than singing songs of disunity and war,” the elder states man said.
Recall that of recent, several groups like the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, are calling for the division of the country.
