Former president of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has again canvassed for justice, righteousness and peaceful coexistence between and among Nigerians.
Senator Mark in a goodwill message to Nigerians on the celebration of this year’s Sallah, in a press statement signed by his media aide, Mr Paul Mumeh, said only harmonious and peaceful coexistence could guarantee meaningful development.
Apparently concerned about recent out burst from different regions agitating for self-independence within the existing geopolitical entity, Mark cautioned against any action or utterances capable of threatening the indivisibility of Nigeria.
He said Nigeria as a nation has over the years weathered the storm of socio-economic and political challenges pointing out that it will be unnecessary and ridiculous to ignite another storm.
Mark however admitted that the current political and constitutional arrangement may not be perfect but “with collective will and understanding of all stakeholders, we can gradually address the perceived imbalances without spilling the beans”
He therefore tasked authorities at all levels to begin forthwith a peace building mechanism between and among various groups so that the present misconceptions in some quarters would not snow ball into a bigger crises.
He reminded aggrieved persons that there are existing legitimate channels including the Judiciary and the National Assembly where groups or individuals could leverage on to seek redress of perceived wrong doings instead of resort to self-help.
For Senator Mark, Nigeria is a big brother in Africa and a respectable player in the world affairs and cannot be seen to be doing things in the opposite direction.
The former Senate president craved for a just and egalitarian society where every citizen is free to pursue his or her legitimate ambition in any part of the country without fear of intimidation or molestation.
