Nigerian Southern Senators Forum Declared Support For One Nigeria

The Nigerian Southern Senators Forum, Wednesday, re-emerged at the Senate after being in oblivion for some years, saying they stand with Nigeria’s unity even as there are several agitations, especially that by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for actualisation of Biafra.

The Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, said this at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja that it was inevitable that the group re-emerged and existed. He said that as lawmakers, they must get closer to the grassroots in order to provide them with the basic needs of life.

“We must ensure that we take decisions that will enable us get closer to our people as we provide a shoulder they can lean on.

“We are alive to our responsibilities. It is not just to pass Bills. We will take on topical issues that will alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians like security and creation of employment.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the group, Uzodinma, said that the Southern Senators’ caucus would play vital role in strengthening the unity of Nigeria, “going by the recent agitation by various sectional groups across the country.’’
