Across the country, calls for secession have continued to gain momentum.

However, in an interview with SaharaReporters on Monday, ACF's spokesman, Emmanuel Yawe, stated that the North will never support secessionists because Nigeria is fine as it is.
Yawe went on to say that secession attempts would exacerbate the country's problems and could even lead to civil war.
