Senate President, David Mark has said Nigeria can never breakup, stating that those calling for its split should move on.
This is coming on the heels of calls for restructuring and the demand by the separatist Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for a sovereign state of Biafra.
In a statement issued on Friday by his Media Aide, Paul Mumeh, the former Senate’s President insisted that “the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable”.
Senator Mark gave the statement when he led members of the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) 3rd Regular Course Alumni Association on a courtesy visit to the Kaduna State Acting governor, Alhaji Aminu Shagali, in Kaduna to mark the Golden Jubilee ( 50 years) of their entry into the NDA.
“Those who are agitating for otherwise are missing the point. Nigeria has crossed many crucibles.
“We cannot reverse ourselves. The only option is to move on in a manner that is progressive, peaceful and united.
“We may have our disagreements. But a break up is not an option. We can resolve our differences through meaningful dialogue and genuine conversation.
“There is no use heating up the polity,” he said.
