By Ado Hassan, Sokoto
‎The Senator representing Sokoto Central in the National Assembly, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko( APC-Sokoto ) on yesterday said the unity ‎and stability of Nigeria are non-negotiable.

He said Nigerians should be seen to be united ‎not divided in order to move forward.
Wamakko stated this in Sokoto when various groups and individuals, including Governor Aminu Waiziri Tambuwal, paid him Sallah homage at his Gawon Nama residence in Sokoto.
The immediate past Governor of the state said Nigeria and Nigerians will benefit more under a united, peaceful and socioeconomically prosperous nation.

Wamakko also noted that no country can develop in an atmosphere of acrimony, discord and general insecurity, adding that‎” no nation could develop and achieve greatness while in disarray and commotion.”

‎He further called on Nigerians, irrespective of any religious, ethnic or cultural affinities to sustain their fervent prayers for continued unity in the country.
The lawmaker stressed that respect among Nigerians should be mutual, reciprocal and not otherwise while urging Nigerians to cooperate with the President
Muhammadu Buhari-led government to build a peaceful, strong and united Nigeria.

According to him” doing so will enable the country to speedily recover from its current challenges and wax stronger.”

In the same vein, Wamakko lauded the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, for his ongoing relentless efforts to ensure
a united Nigeria while calling on Nigerians to sustain their fervent prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari to regain his health and come back to Nigeria and continue the good work he has been doing for the nation.

The senate committee chairman on Basic and Secondary Education also admonished parents to enroll their children in both western and religious schools reiterating that ” no nation can fully develop without sound and proper education of its citizenry, and the National Assembly is religiously committed to ensuring that all Nigerians have access to quality education.”
