Why Nigeria May Not Remain Together For Much Longer – Fani-kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has given reasons why Nigeria may not remain together for much longer.

Fani-Kayode, who spoke on Thursday on the occasion of the nation’s Independent Day celebration, said Nigeria might not remain together longer lots of injustice in the land.

“Today we celebrate 60 years of independence from our former colonial masters. Sadly I am constrained to ask the following question: can our so-called “unity” be sustained for much longer?

“They say where there is no justice there cannot be any peace. Nigeria is a nation that is rife with injustice and where some people are regarded as being more equal than others.

“The ethnic, religious and regional divisions and cracks are widening and the anger of the people is rising. The bitter truth is that if things continue in this way Nigeria may not remain together for much longer,” he said.

According to Fani-Kayode,7

“I believe that if we cannot agree amongst ourselves and fix these problems quickly then there will be a separation. If we cannot live together in peace, harmony and as equals then there will be a break-up. If we cannot be happy together then there will be a divorce.

“We shall and must continue to at least attempt to build bridges of unity in order to engender peace and national cohesion but if anyone insists on saying that he is “born to rule” and that the rest of us were “born to serve” then we must and will go our separate ways.”
