'Nigeria will not disintegrate in 2015'

05 January 2015, 18:23

Lagos - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Sunday said that the prediction that Nigeria would disintegrate in 2015 would fail.

Peter Ozo-Eson, the General Secretary of the NLC said in Lagos that the country would overcome its challenges.

"I am confident that the prediction will fall flat on the face; Nigeria will not disintegrate in 2015.

"Yes, we have these challenges, we however have confidence that Nigeria will rise to the challenge and deal with these challenges.

"Nigeria had faced challenges in the past, probably more severe than now and we did not disintegrate.

"I believe that this country is so united and has created ties that are not easily dissolve-able; the prediction will not come through,’’ he said.

The scribe, who expressed optimism that the country would overcome the current challenges, however, decried the failure of politicians to unite in the fight against terrorists.

"We are worried that the country is at war but the body language of our political leaders does not suggest it,’’ he said.

According to him, it should not take decades before the government will summon the political will to combat the current insurgency threatening national unity.
