NAIJ.com notes that the group also expressed support for all the issues raised by President Muhammadu Buhari during his live broadcast on Monday, August 21, and called for the immediate arrest of perpetrators of hate speech.
Nsimbehe stated: “We are in support of every effort targeted at unifying all the ethnic nationalities. We are for peace, we are for progress and we are one Nigeria.
“We urge the federal government to step up and arrest these disgruntled elements and their sponsor accordingly.
“We acknowledged the effort of the federal government for wanting to establish special court for hate speech.
“We urge those clamoring for restructuring to take a second look at it while channeling their reasons for the call to the appropriate quarters. Political structures evolve over time.
“Nigeria has been restructured at various times and the agitations have not stopped.
“Let us therefore restructure our hearts and minds so that the real restructuring of the country can be meaningful.”
