- The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has revealed solution to the crisis in Nigeria
- Adesina said that the only solution to crises in Nigeria is to reserve a seat in one’s heart for everyone
- The Presidential spokesperson said issuing quit notice to others on the basis of tribe is condemnable
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has finally reacted on the demand for self-determination by South-east groups and the quit notice served on Igbo in the North by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum.
NAIJ.com gathered that the presidential aide spoke during an annual dialogue dinner organized by UFUK Dialogue Foundation in Abuja.
He said: “One thing that struck me at this UFUK Dialogue programme is this saying ‘Reserve a seat In Your Heart for Everyone.’ That is the solution to the complexity that constitutes the problem in a country like Nigeria, in terms of interrelationship.
“If you reserve a seat in your heart for everyone, you won’t promote insurrection. You won’t demand for your own Republic. If you reserve a place in your heart for everyone, you wouldn’t give a Quit Notice to anybody on the basis of tribe because we will be able to live together despite our diversity.
