While speaking at the Government House in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital on Thursday, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, lamented the growing division in Nigeria, warning that the country risks drifting into anarchy if nothing is done quickly to curtail the division.
According to Premium Times, Saraki said Nigeria has never been so divided as it is now and lamented that the nation is at the verge of collapse, adding that he chose to begin his consultation tour in Ebonyi because of his quest for inclusiveness in governance.
The presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) commended the state governor for his developmental strides and leadership prowess.
“There is a high level of uninclusiveness in the country. We must choose leaders that have capacity to move the country forward. What you are seeing in Ebonyi is not by chance, it is because your governor has capacity and that is why you are witnessing development.
“How then can you choose a man with capacity in your state without choosing also a leader with capacity at the national level?
“We will fight poverty, we will fight corruption too and not do a selective corruption fight. We will develop solid minerals in Ebonyi State. We will bring private investors into the country and turn around youth involvement in governance by bringing youths to governance,” he said.
