The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Alhassan Ado Doguwa has dismissed opinion from various quarters that the nation is at the verge of collapse, saying that it will not break up.
Doguwa reiterated his faith that the country would soon overcome its present security challenges and would not disintegrate.
The Majority Leader told journalists in Kano that the worry over the country breaking into pieces was unnecessary.
“Nigeria will not break up. The entire noise making is unnecessary, breakage is not ransomed,” he said.
He said his views were based on the fact that the citizens of the country are bound in cross-cultural and religious integrations to the extent that major tribes are found in all villages around the nation, “therefore the issue of disintegration is not in our country,” he stressed.
“There is no village you pass through that you won`t find Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba man living there,” he said.
To this end, the Majority Leader, who was in the state as a chairman of the Committee on 1999 Constitutional Review, urged the people of the nation to join hands towards building the country for the betterment of all.
“We must learn to know the things that can unite us in order to build on them. Every one of us should put effort to ensure security among us,” he said.
“Everything takes time, we will surely get over this security issue,” he said.
He stressed that disintegration would not provide the much needed peace being sought, just as he cited example with Sudan break up which has yielded no peace.
