Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his Katsina State counterpart, Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari has enjoined Nigerians, irrespective of political leanings, to work cohesively together for the development of the country.
The governors, who met at the Government House, Katsina, Katsina State on Tuesday, maintained that the sustenance of the unity in diversity of Nigeria over the years has played a vital role in the growth and development of the country.
The Katsina State governor used the opportunity to commended Governor Wike for effectively curtailing the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Rivers State.
He observed that if Governor Wike had not acted decisively, the nation would have been in a more precarious situation.
“I know what you did as a committed Nigerian. If you had allowed the situation to penetrate Rivers, only God knows where the situation would have been today.”
Governor Masari used the occasion to condemn the advocates of interim government in the country. According to him, “anybody calling for an interim government is simply calling for a coup against the Constitution.”
