The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere has called on President Buhari to read the mood of the country correctly.

This is following Buhari’s call to those calling for the disintegration of Nigeria to drop their ambition, adding that the country's unity is not negotiable.

The group, through its National Publicity Secretary , Yinka Odumakin, said Nigeria has already broken up.

The current situation in the country has the Niger Delta Avengers asking that their region be recognised as an independent entity, the people in the South-East also agitating for a sovereign state of Biafra and the Boko-Haram terrorists violently pushing for a Sharia state.

Odumakin also said  “I think the President is a sincere man but he may not be reading the mood correctly.

“The country is divided under him than before. Amalgamation and armed dialogue are going on all around us over the unity of Nigeria which many sections perceive has treated them unfairly.

“To continue to insist that the unity is not negotiable is aping that bird which buries its head in the sand and believes, because it is seeing nobody, it has become invisible too.”

Some Nigerians have criticised the recent appointment of Dr Maikanti Kacalla Baru as the new Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) by President Buhari.

They say it as another selective appointment in favour of Northern Nigeria, adding that it is contrary to the Federal Character Principle.
