Dr Amina Abubakar-Bello, the wife of Niger State Governor asks Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu and Dokubo Asari others advocating for division of Nigeria into separate entities to jettison the idea
Dr Amina Abubakar Bello, a Sardauna award winner and wife of Niger State governor on Monday asked Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho and Dokubo Asari, the leader of customary Government of Biafra and others advocating for division of Nigeria into separate entities to jettison the idea.
Igboho had some weeks ago unilaterally declared that the Southwest will no longer be part of Nigeria.
In the same vein, Asari had declared himself the leader of Customary Government of Biafra in which he unilaterally incorporated states in the South south and South east.
However, groups and leaders in the two Southern regions have dismissed the proclamations by the two men.
But speaking while receiving the ‘Sardauna of All Time’ award alongside Sen. Rochas Okorocha and Rep. Aisha Dukku (APC-Gombe) on Monday in Abuja, Dr Amina Abubakar Bello urged all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religion and ethnic affiliations to embrace dialogue and contribute their quota to the national development.
According to her, Nigeria is already too much of a nation and the people are all inter-connected now that it will be difficult to divide it.
