Spokesperson of the Nigerian senate, Ajibola Bashiru has said that most advocates of secession will become campaign managers of opposition parties in 2023.
Bashiru who spoke on a Channels Television programme on Monday March 29, questioned the “democratic credentials” of these secessionists and further stated that there are democratic processes to present agitations.
“When politicians begin to use instrumentality of agitation, violence to seek to undermine a democratic government, you come to suspect what their motive is.Loading...
“And you will be surprised, by 2022, 2023, some of these elements calling for disintegration of Nigeria will now become campaign managers of some opposition political parties.
“There are ample structures for us to be able to articulate our position and you will remember, Nigeria is a democratic society.
“There are democratic institutions like the state assemblies, like the office of the governor, of course, house of representatives and senate.
“When you see people with respect, self-appoint themselves and abrogate and say they are speaking on behalf of the people, the question to ask is: ‘where are their democratic credentials?’”
