Why Nigeria Cannot Divide - NIPR

A group, Citizens’ Summit for National Integration, Peace and Security, said on Friday in Abuja that Nigeria and its citizens are too strongly united to be disintegrated.

The group which is under the aegis of the National Institute for Public Relations (NIPR), after its National Planning Committee meeting, said from a National survey it conducted, a vast majority of Nigerians also want Nigeria to remain united.

Briefing newsmen, the Committee chairman, Dr Ike Neliaku, said that since July 12 when it was inaugurated, it has visited parts of the country to consult, dialogue, meet and brainstorm with different sections of Nigerians on the “heated issues of our nationhood.

“The outcome of our consultations and deliberations appear very clear that a greater percentage of Nigerians believe in preserving the integrity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The question that we have to ask ourselves is: ‘if Nigerians want to stay together if Nigerians love Nigeria if Nigerians will want Nigeria to remain, what then is the problem?’

“Our findings revealed that if certain issues that have formed the fundamentals of agitations across the country are resolved, Nigerians will prefer to live together as Nigerians.

“If matters that have caused certain misconceptions, misunderstanding and distrust, are taken care of by leadership across the board, Nigerians will prefer the option of staying together and building a strong, viral and formidable nation in Africa.
