Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has issued a warning to individuals clamouring for the separation of Nigeria.
In an opinion piece on Sunday titled ‘Moving Nigeria Away from Tipping Over’, OBJ stressed that those beating the drums of war and calling for the separation of the country should remember that the separated parts will still be neighbours. In his words;
“Let me say that we must remind those who are beating the drums of disintegration and singing choruses of bitterness, anger and separation that if even Nigeria is broken up, the separated parts will still be neighbours.And they will have to find accommodation as neighbours or they will be ever at war. And those who prevent justice to be done, invite violence to reign.”
Obasanjo also disclosed that the country was fast reaching a tipping point adding that it had become a ‘failed state’ under President Muhammadu Buhari.
