Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has advised all agitators in the country to pursue their interest through constitutional means.

The Federal lawmakers which have been away for their annual recess for seven-week resumed plenary session on Tuesday.

After a three-hour closed-door meeting during which they discussed some national issues, Saraki said part of the resolutions reached by the Senate is that the Unity of Nigeria not negotiable and all forms of agitation should be channeled through constitutional means.

“The unity of Nigeria is non-negotiable. We are all fully committed to the territorial integrity of our country. The Senate will seek all possible avenues to make sure that peace is restored in all parts of Nigeria.

“Finally the Senate hereby advise that all groups seeking to pursue any agitation should do so through constitutional means.”

Saraki said the unity of Nigeria is the responsibility of all Nigerians and members of the country must jointly condemn in strongest possible terms all forms of violence.

“Distinguished colleagues, a house divided against itself will not stand. More than ever before, we must stand for the unity in the visibility of our country. We must condemn in strongest possible terms all forms of violence as a form of engagement.

“The constitution and the law has laid down tools and procedures for us to pursue our interest as all democratic nations do.”

During the plenary that followed, the Senate also considered a motion on the inadequate releases of funds for the capital component of the 2017 appropriation act. (Channels TV)
