A former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has added his voice to calls for Nigeria to be split.
Atiku said Nigeria cannot be divided.
The former presidential candidate, on Sunday, said division of Nigeria will lead to calamity which is not advisable.
According to him, “We are far too interconnected to be disconnected. Where would my children, who have a parent from each leg of Nigeria go? Where would your children, who have sunk roots far from their ancestral heritage go?”
The former presidential candidate on his Twitter page noted that it was advisable for Nigeria to grow in unity.
His tweets read: “Oliver Wendell Holmes once said that “Man’s mind, stretched to a new idea, never goes back to its original dimension.”

“Let me paraphrase him and say, Nigerian unity, stretched to a new frontier, should never go back to its original dimension.

“We must grow in unity. We must glow in community. We must blow away disunity. We have no choice, considering the alternative, which is a calamity that we would not wish to return to. So help us God.

“May God bless Nigeria as one peaceful, progressive, and indivisible nation.”
Atiku’s comment comes days after the Southern governors declared a ban on open grazing in the states across the region.
Following the ban, Miyetti Allah urged Northern governors not to be silent but act immediately.
