The National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Maimala Buni, says President Muhammadu Buhari’s firm resolve on Nigeria’s unity was a dismissal of quit notices issued by some groups across Nigeria.
Buni in a chat with newsmen in Damaturu on Monday said that the presidential broadcast was “straight to the point as Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable”.
“Majority of Nigerians are satisfied with the submission of the president because it has given every Nigerian a sense of security, citizenship and, true sense of belonging to reside and carry out their legitimate business in any part of the country,” he said.
According to him, the call for secession and restructuring were diversionary and contradicted the ideals of patriotism and corporate unity of the nation.
“This administration is committed to a stronger and united country, with good governance, transparency and prudence as our guiding principles,” he added.
Maimaila urged individuals and groups to channel their grievances through their representatives in the national assembly.
“As democrats, we should appreciate the fact that the National Assembly and National Council of State are the two legitimate bodies for national discourse and anything outside this is illegal and unconstitutional.
“We should collectively pray for improved health of Mr President and more strength for him to serve Nigeria better,” the APC chieftain added.
