NLC President, Ayuba Wabba

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, has urged Nigerians to resist external forces working to break up the country.

Wabba, who made the appeal while answering questions at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum, said that Nigeria’s size, population and natural endowments were assets that many other nations were envious of.

He expressed optimism that the current security challenges and agitations, which according to him were being fuelled and funded by forces determined to undermine Nigeria’s unity were surmountable.

“Our position is that we will not canvass the issue of ‘cannibalising’ Nigeria into segments for any reason or any consideration. It is in unity that our strength lies as a country. We are today the giant of Africa; most countries are not happy with that.

“They will do anything possible to undermine our national interest and also work towards the disintegration of the nation. That is a fact, and we see that as we travel around the world; even within the committee of unions; people are envious of Nigeria.”

He recalled the prediction earlier made in some quarters that Nigeria would break up in 2015, adding that those forces were still working on their agenda.

“We must not forget how people said Nigeria was going to break by 2015 and you must not forget that they are still working on that. They are still funding all manner of things and trying to see that Nigeria does not actually have peace; it is deliberate.

“There is no resource today in the world that we do not have; they see us as a country that is blessed without measure,” he said.

The NLC president noted that some African countries were concerned that if anything happened to Nigeria, it would affect them.

According to him, most of these conflicts are instigated, citing the situation in Syria and other parts of the Middle East as an example.

“Therefore, it is in our own collective interest as Nigerians, because we do not have any other country, to continue to show the light and perspective for others to see,” Wabba added.

    Nigeria is a non-working union, NEVER can be a UNION. While it serves the interest of poor Hausas and Yorubas to have a UNION, the fact remains that the country called Nigeria, can NEVER assume the status of nationhood and it is nobody’s fault. An apple can not produce an orange, neither can you expect oil and water to mix, unfortunately the only remedy would have been the message of RESPECT & TOLERANCE, however that itself is unachievable. Islam which forms the core beliefs and practices of the dominant Northern region is a Religion of VIOLENCE and INTOLERANT. The Yorubas shares similar VIOLENCE religious beliefs as their Northern Cousins, the other half of the Yorubas that are Christians has been polluted by their Yoruba Muslim brethren. The Yoruba as a people are the most ENVIOUS, JEALOUS & GREEDY human-being you will ever encounter on Earth, so if they see you as more prosperous , they will quickly turn against you. Ambode George, the current Governor of Lagos State is clearly showing this traits today. So the Greed, Envy and Jealous of Yoruba people can easily translates to “VIOLENCE & INTOLERANT” against the non-indigenous residents in their domain. So what is the logical conclusion? By now, the picture should be rather clear to you, THAT NIGERIAN SOLUTION IS TWO FOLD: (1)COMPLETE DIVISION AND SEPARATION AS SEPARATE INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES, (2)ALTERNATIVELY, REGIONAL GOVERNMENTS WITH RESOURCE CONTROL AND LIBERTY TO RUN A SYSTEM THAT BEFITS AND THAT BENEFITS EACH REGION

    Mr. Wabba pointing fingers at others and blaming others for the current agitations for the dissolution of Nigeria or the restructure of Nigeria by some groups within Nigeria, and blaming it on external forces is the worst comment that could come from any rational and thinking person. The Nigerian-Biafran war was instigated by the external forces? The massacre of Christians by herdsmen from your terrorist tribe was done by external forces? The destruction and pollution and exploitation of Niger Delta region by Nigerian Hausa/Fulani and its Yoruba collaborators were done by external forces? The 95% appoint
    of Buhari cabinet members of Muslims and people from his tribe against any known precedence is the work of external forces? The killing of unarmed Igbo youths for the release of detained leader of Nnamdi Kanu by Mumuhead Buhari is also the work of external forces?that Boko Haram Please look into the mirror of conscience if you have any, the problem of Nigeria is squarely in the footsteps of HAUSA & YORUBA, YOUR RELIGION NEVER HELPED YOU BE MORALLY RESPONSIBLE TO WHAT IS RIGHT, BUT INSTEAD YOUR RELIGION TEACHES YOU TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE OF OTHER FAITH.
    The reason Mr. Wabba is too excited about Nigeria, is because he is milking resources from other regions, he got more states, more local governments created by illegal military leaders from his town, who ended up allocation huge resources of our wealth to their region. HE CAN LIKE NIGERIA AS MUCH AS HE LIKES, MANY OF US HATE NIGERIA, BECUASE WE DO NOT WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANIMALS LIKE WABBA THE EXPLOITER AND KILLER OF CHRISTIANS.
