President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba, has cautioned Nigerians to resist external forces working hard to break up the country.
According to him, “most countries” are unhappy that Nigeria is the giant of Africa, and will therefore be happy to see the country disintegrate.
Wabba, who made the appeal yesterday at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abulja , said the country’s size, population and natural endowments are assets that many other nations are envious of.
“It is in unity that our strength lies as a country. We are today the giant of Africa; most countries are not happy with that. They will do anything possible to undermine our national interest and also work towards the disintegration of Nigeria.

“That is a fact, and we see that as we travel around the world. Even within the committee of unions, people are envious of Nigeria. We must not forget how people said Nigeria was going to break by 2015 and you must not forget that they are still working on that.
“They are still funding all manners of things and trying to see that Nigeria does not actually have peace; it is deliberate. There is no resource today in the world that we do not have; they see us as a country that is blessed without measure,” he said.
He expressed optimism that the current security challenges and agitations “being fuelled and funded by forces determined to undermine Nigeria” would be surmounted.
“Our position is that we will not canvass the issue of cannibalising Nigeria into segments for any reason or any consideration,” he said.
