The Union of Nigeria is under threat – Atiku
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said Nigeria’s unity is currently under threat.
The Waziri of Adamawa stated this while addressing journalists at the Kano Government House, when he paid a condolence visit to the state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, following the death of former Nigerian Permanent representative to the United Nations, UN.
Abubakar said Sule would have played a major role in the restoration of the country’s unity if he was still alive.
He said, “The unity of our people and the role he (Maitama Sule) could have played in the restoration of that unity has gone with him, now we are in a dilemma.
“We don’t have somebody like Dan Massani from the North anymore to do that. So, we should not forget about the unity of Nigeria, rather, we should try to find people of similar beliefs and antecedents like Dan Massanin Kano, to continue his good works.
“It is impossible for me to describe his contributions to the evolvement of modern Nigeria but I know we have lost one of our greatest Nigerians that ever lived.
“Your Excellency, we have come to condole with you as brothers, we have come to pray for the repose of his soul. We thank you very much for giving us this opportunity and we hope the people of Kano will, by the grace of God, produce another Dan Massani who will fit into his footsteps and offer his contributions to the unity and survival of this country.”
This is coming at a time when various groups across Nigeria are clamouring for a breakup of the country.
