Political class to blame for disunity in Nigeria – Femi Falana

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, SAN, has said that political class should be blamed for the disunity in the country.

He accused them of destroying the gains of the struggle of the country’s founding father by dividing the country using religion and ethnicity.

He, therefore, argued that restructuring the country will be possible with equality and justice, which can lead to peace, unity, and harmony across various nationalities residing in the country.

He spoke on Monday in Abuja at the DAAR Communications National Discourse, which focuses on dialogues around ethnic nationalities and the emerging challenges in Nigeria.

Falana called out the Nigerian government’s unjust appointments, and how it provided a channel for promoting disunity.

“No doubt the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has a long way in ensuring that peace and unity thrive,” Falana said.

Panelists and speakers at the dialogue also called on the Buhari administration to take action, and genuinely begin the process that will create peace and unity in the country.

The former President of the West Africa Bar Association (WABA), Femi Falana, is also a renowned human rights lawyer and activist. He has spoken up regarding multiple human rights issues in the country, with the latest surrounding the #EndSARS protests.
