Bayelsa state Governor Hon Seriake Dickson has stated that the unity of this country is negotiable. He made this known during his presentation as a guest speaker at on going Southern senators forum in Calabar.
This totally negates the claim earlier made by President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) that our unity as a country is not negotable. According to him, if greater nations like the UK could sit and renegotiate their sovereign existence as an entity, then Nigeria shouldn’t go ahead and assert that our unity is not to be discussed.
While reaffirming his belief in one united, stable stronger and bigger Nigeria, he opines that unity of the country though desirable should not be reliant on the strength of our military citing that if USSR with their full military compliments could not forestall their disintegration, then it should be prejudice to subject Nigeria unity to the strength of the military which according him seems to be the status quo at the moment.
He was greeted with a resounding applause by the Senators and participants at the retreat.
