Senate President, Senator David Mark, on Wednesday cautioned those fanning embers of disintegration and beating drums of war to stop their actions, saying the country cannot afford another civil war.
He said the “unity of Nigeria is extremely important.”
Mark spoke when he led members of Alumni Association of Course 3 of the Nigerian Defence Academy to pay a courtesy call on Niger State Governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu.
He said, “The strength of Nigeria is in our unity not in our division, so let us all work for the unity of this country.”
Mark, who fought during the country’s 30- month civil war warned those shouting war slogans to desist, pointing out that no nation can achieve any development in war.
He then offered to use his office and influence to ensure peace and unity of the country.
“I want to assure Nigerians that I will work for the unity and peace of the country because our strength is in our unity not in our division so we must all work for the unity of this country.”
In his remarks, Governor Aliyu urged those calling for session to think on how to move the country forward.
