The Summit for National Integration, Peace and Security established by the body Nigerian Institute for Public Relations (NIPR) says Nigeria is too strong to split.
The body stated this after its National Planning Committee meeting, NAN reports.
The organisation said going by a nationwide survey conducted, a vast majority of Nigerians want the country to remain one.
The Chairman, Ike Neliaku, said the outcome of consultations and deliberations confirmed that a greater percentage of the people believe in preserving the integrity of the nation.
“If Nigerians want to stay together, if Nigerians love Nigeria, if Nigerians will want Nigeria to remain, what then is the problem?” Neliaku queried.
Neliaku disclosed that findings show Nigerians will prefer to live together if issues fueling agitations are resolved.
“The NIPR believes Nigeria is too strong to disintegrate. As professionals, we are committed to making the Nigerian project work,” he added.
The Chairman insisted some of the issues that plague the nation could be easily fixed.
Neliaku mentioned the federal character principle which he noted had not been effectively managed.
