The chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum and Ekiti State Governor, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, has reportedly stated that secessionists are only taking advantage of the country’s insecurity without considering the consequences of their actions.
Fayemi reportedly disclosed this in Ado Ekiti on Friday at a colloquium held in commemoration of the June 12, 1993, presidential election with the theme, ‘June 12: Securing the Freedom of Democracy’.
According to him, “The continuing proliferation of conflict centres and the exacerbating divisive rhetoric are all parts of a grand plan to ground Nigeria to a halt.”
He added that “No doubt that there were calculated plans by some external forces, in collaboration with domestic conspirators, to dismember Nigeria and cause an untold humanitarian crisis.”
Fayemi stated that, “the most striking lesson of the election is that the unity of purpose and open-mindedness are needed for our country to escape the relentless efforts of some elements to subvert our country’s corporate existence.”
