The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Saturday alleged that those clamouring for the breakup of the country were the elite, who were in the vast minority.
He also disclosed that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), would later this month submit a supplementary budget to the National Assembly to request more funds to tackle insecurity across parts of the country.
Lawan, according to a statement from his media office, made the disclosure while speaking to journalists in his home town Gashua on Saturday.
According to him, those behind the minority agitations were disgruntled elites bent on satisfying their self-serving interest to the detriment of the majority of Nigerians.
He added that the unity of Nigeria would continue to be the cardinal focus of the National Assembly by ensuring equity, justice and fairness for every part of the country.
Lawan said, “Nigeria will continue to be one. What we need to emphasise always is equity, justice and fairness to all, for all.
“I think this is one way to go, probably the only way to go to ensure that everybody feels belonged.
