Mr Tony Uranta, the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian National Summit Group (NNSG), says his group will resist any attempt to break-up Nigeria.

Uranta told the Nigeria News Agency on Tuesday in Lagos that the group was against the breaking-up of the country.

“We are fighting against any current attempts to destabilise or break-up Nigeria,” he said.

He said that there was the need for all right thinking Nigerians to join hands and ensure that the current deepening security challenges the country was facing would not break her.

“There is no nation without security its challenges and we have had our fair share in the past.

“However, the dimension it is taking at present requires serious attention and input from all, otherwise, the consequences, if not reduced, will be dire for all.

“Presenting it as it is, every strata of the nation is affected; the rich, the poor, the power brokers and all the states of the federation.

“We can no longer sit and watch this go on without rising to it. There must be a way out that will complement what the security agencies are doing,” he said.

He urged the state governors to immediately convene stakeholders’ meetings in their states that would come up with blue prints and ideas on how to tackle insecurity in the country.

“No group or persons or even security agencies can have all the knowledge for tactical approach to dealing with those perpetrating insecurity.

“The killings are too many. The kidnaps, robberies, rituals, frauds have reached their peak.

“If we do not act now, those involved in the vices will overrun the nation and we will all become victims.

“The time to act is now. Enough is enough,” he said.

Uranta, however, reiterated calls for Nigeria to be restructured.

“As it is now, we must stop pretending that all is well with Nigeria. We must all agree that there is a need to restructure Nigeria.

“We must ensure necessary devolution of powers, fiscal federalism and review the many unjust laws that are holding the country from attaining her maximum potential: economically, politically and socially,” he said.
