Former Minister of Aviation and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, says the country is on the verge of disintegration following statements by the Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndigbo, and Northern Elders Forum that Nigeria’s unity is negotiable.
Recall that the trio of Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndigbo, and Northern Elders Forum spoke independently yesterday at a public lecture themed, ‘Nationalism and nation-building in Nigerian history,’ held in Lagos, on Nigeria’s unity being negotiable.
On his part, the President of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor, said, “Nigerian unity is definitely negotiable and must be re-negotiated for it to stand or survive the test of time.”
However, Fani-Kayode said the statements by Nigeria’s three major ethnic groups revealed that all is not well.
Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote, “When Afenifere, Ohanaeze and the Northern Elders Forum go to a conference, as they did yesterday, & say the unity of Nigeria is negotiable it means we are on the brink. And this just before an election in which each of the 3 largest tribes are presenting candidates? God help us.”
