Former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido has explained the reason why Nigeria can’t break up.
The PDP Chieftain said that Nigeria cannot break up because the elites are not interested in the breaking up of the country because they have a lot to lose if that happens.
Addressing a group of youths, Lamido asked, “Who will break it? The ordinary person in Jigawa or the ordinary person in Sokoto or the ordinary person in Bayelsa? Is it the Igbo vulcanizer or the Yoruba woman selling kerosene by the roadside or the Okada man in Delta?
“They don’t have the capacity to unite because they are burdened by poverty. We have taken away from them their dignity, their self-esteem, their pride and self-worth so that they cannot even organize for the break-up of the country.
“Up there, we (elites) unite. We will never allow Nigeria to break because once it breaks, we will lose. But the common man loses nothing. What is he losing? He is already in hell; he cannot lose anything more than this hell.”
