Former Senate President, Senator David Mark, has taken stock of the unfolding sectional agitation calling for a break up of Nigeria and reminded promoters of the divisive agenda of the consequences of a fragmented nation.
A worried Mark cautioned the agitators of a possible break up of Nigeria to think otherwise “because the trend today is that nations are coming together and bridging gaps of differences for mutual cooperation under a new world order of globalization for a better society. Nigeria is part of the global community.”
The former senate president in a goodwill message to Nigerians marking this year’s Eid-el-Fitr celebration urged Muslim faithful to imbibe the lessons of the Holy month of Ramadan and continue to pray for peace, unity and stability of Nigeria.
He cautioned those stirring up the embers of disunity, anarchy and confusion to desist from doing so and concentrate their efforts toward building a more stable, prosperous and united Nigeria stressing that “we have more to gain staying together than falling apart.”
Mark warned that the consequences of another civil war for the country will be devastating and catastrophic not only for Nigeria but for the entire African Continent.
