Hopes for the National Conference

13 March 2014, 12:37

On National Conference:

My prayer is that it should further unite us instead of putting sword in our midst. The National Conference is an embraced move by the Goodluck Jonathan-led FD, but my fear is about the caliber of persons with prior questionable character representing a people, unions, bodies, etc

The NC is yet to begin and you hear and read inciting statements from different representatives. For instance, Usman Bugaje says: "Nigeria's Oil Belongs To The North Not Niger Delta..."

Earlier, I read Asari Dokubo's provoked response to the statement above. I won't blame any Niger Deltan irascible response to that as its real inciting.

And in a way, the statement serves as a goad to the Northerners, especially those yawning for division. And also a room for people like the ex-militants like Asari to carry up their arms again.

Its not far fetch that our problem in this country starts from our so-called representatives.....

What about the said Senator Ewuga who's been indicted for being behind Ombatse's (Nasarawa) Killing Of 74 Military Men in May 7, 2013, and other related matters?

Which way Nigeria....?

I've great hope for my Nation when I hear and read from people like Odia Ofeimu who strongly believe also that no sword, no matter how sharp it could be will be able to divide this country on any ground, at least not in this new century.
