Advocates Of Sovereign Conference Should Go On Exile, Says Gov. Aliyu
Niger State governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu has urged those who are advocating a Sovereign National Conference (SNC) with a view to dismembering the country to go on self exile as Nigeria would remain indivisible.
Governor Aliyu stated this yesterday while receiving members of the Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue at Government House Minna.
Aliyu stated that SNC was out of the question, hence it would require all elected officers be dissolved and the sovereignty transferred to the SNC.
“Let us understand these intellectual issues that are involved; we are not in a banana republic. Anybody who feels that he wants to get out (of Nigeria), he is free to go on exile. If you don’t want to be a Nigerian you are free to go on exile to stay wherever you want but you should not think you can use National Conference to dismember this or that”, he said.
He suggested 910 delegates to participate, with a delegate each from the 774 local government areas of the country, 100 delegates from special interest groups while 36 traditional leaders from the states of the federation should be selected from the traditional institutions.
“We should use the institutions on ground to select the delegates,” he said.
