Unity of Northern Nigeria is currently being threatened by the violent activities
of the Boko Haram sect, Bauchi State governor, Alhaji Isa Yuguda said on
Yuguda feared that if the violent sect members are not stopped from their
nefarious activities, the nation, especially the north would disintegrate. The
governor however did not expatiate on his remarks.
Yuguda who spoke when he received the management of Federal Radio
Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN, Kaduna zonal station led by its Zonal
Manager, Alhaji Ladan Salihu noted however that a united north is crucial to a
strong and virile Nigeria.
“We have serious challenges in the north. It is a big task on all of us to
promote peace and tolerance and everyone must take this seriously. If we
don’t do that and the north collapses, posterity will hold us responsible.
When Gen. Yakubu Gowon came here, I urged him to use the experience he
acquired as a Nigerian head of state in uniting the nation especially the
north”, he said.
He appealed to the FRCN delegation to use their media to disseminate news
and information materials that would retain northern unity.
“The FRCN must use its vehicle of communication to promote peace and
unity in the north. We must show our determination in re-uniting the north
and to promote peace because the north is, at the moment, in pieces. If we
don’t have the north, I don’t think Nigeria will stand,” the governor added.
He also enjoined politicians to emulate the virtues of the late Sardauna of
Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, whom he described as a sincere, honest and God-
Boko Haram sect, which claimed it is prosecute an Islamic agenda has been
responsible for serial bomb attacks on targets leading to the death of over
1000 people in the last few months.
