President Muhammadu Buhari has described advocates of restructuring and secession in the country as naive and “mischievously dangerous”.
The president added that they are agitating for the impossible.
The President declared that his government had no time for any obscure conference; a veiled reference to calls for a constitutional conference.
President Buhari spoke during the launch of the Kudirat Abiola Sabon Gari Peace Foundation in Zaria, Kaduna State.
Buhari who was represented as Special Guest of Honour by the Executive Secretary, Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Alhaji Mohammed Bello Shehu, said those calling for the balkanization of Nigeria were only doing so to destabilise his government.
“You are telling us to dissolve a system and call for an obscure conference to come and discuss how we can move forward as a nation. That can never be done and no country will agree to that,” he said.
The Kudirat Abiola Sabon Gari Peace Foundation was founded in memory of Alhaja Kudirat Abiola, wife of the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief M.K.O. Abiola. Kudirat was born in Zaria.
Also speaking at the event, Kudirat’s son, Alhaji Jamiu Abiola, said the death of his parents would be in vain should Nigeria or its democracy collapse.
