Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former Nigerian Vice President, has commended youths in Niger Delta for rescinding their quite notice to people from the Northern and Southwestern part of the country.
In a press release from his Media Office on Sunday, Atiku hailed the decision and said, “there is enough in Nigeria for everyone’s need and to meet every bloc’s aspirations”.
“This news could not have come at a better time as when Nigeria defeated Cameroon 4-0. The Super Eagles scored four goals and none of those goals were scored in the name of Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba or indeed under the aegis of North or South. Each and everyone of those goals were resoundingly for Nigeria.
“No one disowns a child when he or she is almost 60. Nigerian is too old and too big to fail. Instead of divisions, what we must do is restructure our federation till it more closely resembles the almost perfect union that our Founding Fathers chiseled together at the various pre Independence conferences.
“There is enough in Nigeria for everyone’s need and to meet every bloc’s aspirations. What we need is not uniformity but harmony. Just like an orchestra, we may all sing differently, but when our voices are blended, together, they give off a richer more melodious symphony than would ever have been possible if we were to sing individually,” Atiku said in the statement.
