Speaking in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service monitored in Abuja, the former Vice President noted that though he was not against Nigerians coming together to dialogue on the nation’s challenges, the ground rules of representation at such conference must be clearly defined.
According to Abubakar, if the modalities for representation at such conference were based on ethnicity, religion and regionalism, then he would not throw his weight behind such endeavour.
He said that he would not endorse any effort aimed at dismantling Nigeria’s unity and cohesion under whatever guise.
In his words, “Nigeria has come of age in the journey to nationhood and any efforts designed to upset the apple cart of our unity is uncalled for at this time. The National Assembly remains the best forum to channel such issues for deliberation rather than seeking unusual avenues to create confusion and threaten out unity.”No tags for this post.
