Minister Of Information, Lai Mohammed, Declares That It Is Not Okay For The South-East And South-West To Call For Secession Or Separation, Says All Nigerians Have Agreed That Secession Is Not An Option At All

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has stated boldly that more efforts will be needed to break Nigeria, despite the rising insecurity in the country, as well as the new attacks on Security Agencies, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s watch, Page 36 learnt.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s ‘Newsnight’, on Monday, he said: “The agitation for political restructuring is okay. However, what is not okay is the call for secession or for separation.

“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.”

As part of the measures to tackle the farmers/herders’ clashes in some parts of the country, the Minister kicked against the open grazing of cattle and animals.

He said that the present system of animal husbandry is not sustainable, adding that, “ranches must be established all over, grazing reserves must be established”.

On the security challenges in the country, Lai Mohammed backed several calls for the creation of State Police.

He stated that the move would help tackle the myriads of security threats in several parts of the nation.

The Minister however called on the National Assembly and the States Houses of Assembly to collaborate, to enable it to happen.
