Biafra: David Mark speaks on breakup of Nigeria

Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has for umpteenth time stated that break up of the country is not an option, insisting that “the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable”.

He said: “Those who are agitating for otherwise are missing the point. Nigeria has crossed many crucibles . We cannot reverse ourselves. The only option is to move on in a manner that is progressive, peaceful and united

“We may have our disagreements. But a break up is not an option. We can resolve our differences through meaningful dialogue and genuine conversation. There is no use heating up the polity”.

Senator Mark, stated this when he led members of the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) 3rd Regular Course Alumni Association on a courtesy visit to the Kaduna State Acting governor, Alhaji Aminu Shagali, in Kaduna today to mark the Golden Jubilee ( 50 years) of their entry into the NDA.

He noted that no matter the imperfections, the nation is greater and better as an indivisible country.

Senator Mark and his coursemates were admitted into the NDA in September 1967.

He said: “Fifty years ago, we were admitted into NDA as cadets with a mission to protect and defend the territorial integrity of our nation . We were bonded together by patriotism to keep Nigeria one.

“It is a sweet memory and a reunion to gather in Kaduna once again,” he explained.

He stated that the Alumni Association was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission( CAC) as a non- political and non- Profit-making association to carry out humanitarian activities such offering of scholarships and assisting the widows especially of deceased members.

Responding, the Acting Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Shagali thanked members of the alumni association for believing in the indivisibility of Nigeria.

Shagali said Kaduna state on Its part would continue to work for the peace and unity of Nigeria.

He recalled that even the fear of reprisal attacks when there were some disturbances in some parts of Nigeria were unfounded in Kaduna because the government was proactive .
