I won’t support violent dissolution of Nigeria, says Bode George
A FORMER Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, today, vowed never to support a violent dissolution of Nigeria.
He stressed the need for President Buhari to urgently restructure the country.
In a letter to the President, George, who is the Atona Oodua of Yorubaland, said his position “is without partisan or ethnic intimations.”
“I bear no sectarian toga. My resolve is purely on the need to prevent the violent dissolution of the Nigerian entity,” he stated.
According to him, “it would be wrong and even cynical for anyone to pretend that the present Nigerian structure is smooth and without flaws.”
He added, “On the contrary, the very skewed structures are provoking everywhere the glaring indices of terror and widening chaos.
“From Sokoto to Calabar, from Jigawa to Delta, from Borno to Rivers- the Nigerian -state is sinking deeper into loose banditry and general uncertainties. Virtually everyone is vulnerable. There are no safe havens anymore.”
This is coming as calls for succession continue to rise in the Southwest and Southeast.
