After two-hour meeting, senate declares Nigeria’s unity not negotiable

The senate after a two-hour closed session declared that Nigeria’s unity was not negotiable.

The upper legislative chamber resumed from its two-month recess on Tuesday.

While it was on break, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which is seeking the secession of the south-east, was declared a terrorist organisation by the military and proscribed by governors of the region.

Although, the government later procured a court order to legitimatise its action, Senate President Bukola Saraki had faulted the proscription of the group, saying it was unconstitutional. He said the senate would investigate the issue when it resumed.

On Tuesday, after an executive session which lasted two hours, the upper legislative chamber resolved to seek avenue of restoring peace in all parts of the country.

It also asked groups agitating for any cause to do so through constitutional means.
