Justice, Fairness And Equality Will Address Agitations For Secession – Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor, and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, has reportedly stated that the Federal Government should involve secessionist groups in the country in a dialogue.

He reportedly stated this as the guest lecturer at a public lecture to mark the 21st anniversary of Mambayya House (Aminu Kano Centre for Democratic Studies).

According to him, “The creation of employment opportunities and entrenchment of justice, fairness and equality in all the diverse groups in the country, irrespective of religious or tribal affiliations will to a large extent address the current agitations threatening the peace and unity of the country.”

He noted that, ‘’Countries, like Somalia, Sudan and a host of others that have split from their mother countries have never known peace.”

He maintained that, “If Nigeria splits, it will join the bandwagon of Somalia, which is neck-deep in crisis. The country will be better off to remain united than divide into so many independent countries.’’

He continued that, “United we stand, divided we fall. Countries like United States of America, and former Soviet Union were united and that is the basis of their strength and weapon towards its continuous socio-economic development and advancement.”

He added that, “All the aggrieved secessionist groups should be brought under one umbrella and dialogued with toward an amicable settlement of their differences, so as to remain united and indivisible.”
