Concerned Nigerian Network in Diaspora has expressed concern about those calling for a divided Nigeria.
The network, therefore, calls on such individuals and groups to have a rethink, as one united Nigeria will make the country stronger.
According to its president, Ambassador James Erebuoye, in a statement made available to Nigerian Pilot, the network also has volunteered to take time to screen all presidential candidates of political parties and their manifestoes with the view to endorsing and supporting the candidate of their choice ahead of the 2023 general elections in the country.
“We are concerned that the 2023 presidential election is very important to Nigerians especially those in the diaspora because we believe that the nomination and eventual election of a right president for Nigeria will bring about positive change, the change that will bring about the unity of the country and forget all the differences among Nigerians.
“We admit that the country is facing a lot of challenges ranging from insecurity, unemployment, favouritism, etc. at the moment, but that does not call for the division of the country.
“We strongly advise that in times like this, we must drop our tribal, religious and political differences and come together as one Nigeria to find the lasting solutions to this problem facing our country.
“We believe that 2023 is still far, and it will be a distraction for the desperate politicians to begin to talk about the presidency when President Muhammadu Buhari still has two years in office, which is still enough time to deliver on his election promises. We need peace in the country to achieve good health and development.
“We urge Nigerians, home and abroad, to have all hands on deck to do everything possible not to dent the image of our country,” Erebuoye advised.
The network, therefore, called on the political class to handle the country’s democracy with maturity in order to avoid a political crisis, noting that they must learn how to accept election defeat and also play oppositions without tribal and religious sentiments.
“We must learn to support the good agenda of any elected politician irrespective of the political party affiliation and be constructive in their criticism. This is because unconstructive criticism will only lead to more crisis especially in a country like ours where many still can’t read and write,” he added.
