Senator Aliyu Wamakko, representing Sokoto North has stated that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable.
Wamakko, a former governor of Sokoto State, said that Nigeria and Nigerians would benefit more under a united, peaceful and socio-economically prosperous nation.
According to him, “No nation can develop in an atmosphere of acrimony, discord and general insecurity.
“In the same vein, no nation can develop and achieve greatness, while in disarray and commotion.”
He also called on Nigerians to cooperate with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to build a peaceful, strong and united Nigeria. The senator said that this would enable the country to speedily recover from its current challenges and wax stronger.
“No nation can fully develop without sound and proper education of its citizenry.
He also specifically saluted the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for his ongoing tireless efforts to ensure a united Nigeria.
Speaking earlier, Chairman, Dange/Shuni Local Government Area, Alhaji Mode Dantasallah, said that the group’s visit to the former governor was to felicitate with him on the occasion of Sallah celebration.
