Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has said Nigeria failed to integrate into a nation since amalgamation of Northern and Southern Protectorate in 1914.

He spoke in Abuja at a dialogue to mark the 60th birthday of National Secretary of Alliance for Democracy (AD), and Fellow of Abuja School of Social and Political Thought, Prof Udenta Udenta.

Jonathan noted there was no commitment to integrate Nigeria into an entity with common philosophy.

“There was no commitment to integrate Nigeria into an entity that you can say yes, this is a nation with common philosophy …” he said.

According to him, the country was so polarised especially during early party formation as the parties mostly had regional bias.

“I know as a person when North and South were amalgamated in 1914 by Lord Lugard, probably that beginning, that formation period from 1914 till early elections, party formation and independence struggles and our parties, I am not blaming our forefathers but we failed to integrate us into a nation.

The jurist said her speech was directed at parties.

A statement by her media aide, Felix Enebeli, reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the unfortunate skewed social media interpretation inflicted upon the innocuous speech made by Justice Mary Odili, retired Justice of Supreme Court, during the colloquium organised in Abuja on Friday, September 1, to mark the 25th anniversary of Chief Joe Kyari Gadzama as Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) with the theme: The Nigeria of our Dreams: A Call to the Patriots.

Some mischievous conflict entrepreneurs have been hosting comments from persons determined to force her speech to fit jaundiced narratives and political nuances. Justice Odili spoke like one ‘who saw something and said something’ without minding whose ox is gored.

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has disclosed that the construction of the second runway at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, will be completed within the next 12 months.

Speaking during a tour at the Abuja airport on Tuesday, he said the government had started the payment of compensation to communities affected by the second runway project.

“you know, I had to go and meet the FCT minister and get that project off the ground in terms of clearing the obstacles on the way. So, as of today, the report I have is that the money we paid to FCT for them to pay the settlers there has started being paid, and they have started moving.

“This is a project Nigerians have been waiting for forever. It has been a controversial project since Obasanjo’s time. Well, thankfully, this government is set to commence that project and it is one of the projects that is a low-hanging fruit for us and we think it is extremely important. You remember the other time there was a problem with the Abuja runway, we all had to go to Kaduna, you know, in a very inconvenient manner, to board our plane.
