Senator Orji Kalu, The Chief Whip of the Senate, says Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable in what can best be described as a message to Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra agitators.
Kanu said this on Tuesday at the palace of Eze Dr G. I Ezekwesiri Ochi 1 of Isuochi, Umunneochi LGA of Abia State, southeast Nigeria.
He commended President Muhammadu Buhari in his determined efforts to curb insurgency in the North-East even as he acknowledged the role of traditional rulers in sensitizing the people on the need for national cohesion.
He said: “the efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government in the fight against insurgency should be applauded.
“The role of traditional institutions in promoting peace and harmony cannot be undermined. Royal fathers are close to the grassroots and as such, they should be supported in the noble cause of nation-building.
“Nigerians must place national interest above personal and selfish ambitions. Nigeria is one and united”.
