Nigeria's Unity Negotiable, Says Kingibe

Ambassador Babagana Kingibe, Nigeria's envoy to Chad and the Lake Chad basin region, believes the country's unity is negotiable.

The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), speaking at The Sun Newspapers 2020 Awards in Lagos on Saturday, said even the union between a husband and wife is negotiable.

However, he assured separatist agitators that the land on which they live would not be carved out and relocated if the country fell apart.

"I was born in Nigeria," says the narrator. In Nigeria, I was groomed. Nigeria is something I believe in. Nigeria is something that my generation believes in. We are certain that we have no choice except to go to Nigeria."

"However, I feel that a few of my colleagues believe that Nigeria's unity is irreversible. It is, of course, negotiable. Even a family's togetherness can be negotiated. Even the relationship between husband and wife can be altered.

"As soon as either party believes the partnership is no longer acceptable, he or she will want to go their separate ways." You assist them in sitting down to analyze their situation after a serious and sensible evaluation of the benefits and drawbacks of various marriage options, so that they may make the best decision for them.

“I don't believe they understand what we mean when we say we want to move away. It's not as if you slice out a piece of land and move it to the other side of Ghana. The plot of land will be located here. You'll be here soon. Everyone will be present. And we all want to be successful. Please, everyone, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please Let us not cast aspersions on one another. Let us all respect each other's viewpoints."

Kingibe, who was honored with the newspaper's 'Lifetime Achievement Award,' cautioned individuals considering leaving Nigeria to think about the consequences.

"Are you sure you're traveling in the right direction?" Are you certain of the consequences of your actions? Do you believe the grass is truly greener on the other side? ”

"If you do, sit with your partner in mutual regard, if possible, in affection, but without demonizing your husband or wife, because you will always be the other person's ex." But talk quietly so that you may interact with love and respect even if you part in the future," he continued.

What do you think about Kingibe's statement? I will love to see your opinion in the comments section below.
