He said, “My view is that all parts of Nigeria need to be carried along and especially the leadership of Northern Nigeria, it needs to be engaged and contacted and then buy-in and support.

“It is not only essential, it is indispensable to the success of the new Nigeria we are trying to carve.

“We are talking about our country and every part of the country has to be carried along. We need to interact and know what their fears, concerns and perspectives are so that we can, in the end, craft a position that will represent the collective aspirations of all parts of our country because this country is in dire need of devolution, this country is in dire need of a return to the essential founding fathers principles of our nation.

“That is when you can have stability in the states; that is when we’d have unleashed the huge potentials that exist in every part of the country.”
