A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that a generational shift of power to the young is needed if Nigeria wants to remain one.
The former Minister of Aviation made this known in a post on his Twitter page on Wednesday.
According to the PDP stalwart, 2023 will determine everything about Nigeria’s unity.
He stated that agitators for restructuring and self-determination are always tagged as dangerous extremists by the Nigerian government.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “5 years ago those that called for the restructuring of our nation were called dangerous extremists.
“Now they are called men of vision. Today those that are calling for self-determination are being called dangerous extremists.
“5 years from now they will be called men of vision.
“I repeat this for all to hear. 2023 will determine everything.
“If u want Nigeria to remain together let there be a generational shift of power to a young, selfless & decisive leader that will be fair to ALL zones & tribes & will have the respect, support & confidence of everyone.”
