Unity Must Exist Before We Talk About Restructuring – Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki has asked advocates of restructuring in Nigeria to prioritize the unity of the nation.
This, according to him, is because there must be unity before talks about the structure of the country can be held.
The Senate President said this on Saturday at the Southern Senators Forum’s retreat in Calabar, the Cross River capital.
“Indeed, unity must exist before we can even talk about restructuring or reform,” Saraki said, adding, “One of my messages to you today as I declare this retreat (open) is, how do we stay together? How do we deliver on the task entrusted to us at this critical time?”
There have been calls from across the country for the restructuring of the country with some arguing that doing that would bring an end to agitations in parts of the country.
Saraki, however, called for focus on unity.
“The only way for us to see ourselves is, first and foremost, as Nigerians; not as language, not as tribe, religion or region or any other consideration out there that serves to deflect our attention from national unity. We must see ourselves as Nigerians first,” he said.
