‘Nigeria cannot be divided’ – Atiku Abubakar

A former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, has explained that it is in nobody’s interest for Nigeria to be divided, as this will lead to ‘calamity’ which is not advisable.

According to him, “We are far too interconnected to be disconnected. Where would my children, who have a parent from each leg of Nigeria go? Where would your children, who have sunk roots far from their ancestral heritage go?”

Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 elections, wrote on his verified Twitter handle that it was advisable for Nigeria to grow in unity.

“Oliver Wendell Holmes once said that “Man’s mind, stretched to a new idea, never goes back to its original dimension.

“Let me paraphrase him and say, Nigerian unity, stretched to a new frontier, should never go back to its original dimension.

“We must grow in unity. We must glow in community. We must blow away disunity. We have no choice, considering the alternative, which is a calamity that we would not wish to return to. So help us God.

“May God bless Nigeria as one peaceful, progressive, and indivisible nation” he tweeted.

Atiku’s take comes with the nation on edge after the Southern Governors declared a collective ban on open grazing by marauding herdsmen.

Following the ban, northern groups have kicked, calling for reprisal measures in the north.
