Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has rebuffed calls for secession, saying that restructuring the nation was the best scenario for Nigeria today.
Mohammed said this during Channels Television’s Newsnight on Monday.
“The agitation for political restructuring is okay. However, what is not okay is the call for secession or for separation,” Mohammed said.
He added, “We would need more energy to break Nigeria than to fix it. As a matter of fact, the strength of Nigeria is its diversity. So everybody agreed that secession is not an option
