‘We are looking at all contributions made by Nigerians across the country.

‘Very soon we will come out with policies to address the call for restructuring of the country.’

He added that:

‘It is in our interest as a nation to continue to dialogue for the unity and peace of the country.

‘Equity, fairness and justice can only be achieved under a peaceful atmosphere. We must not do those things that will turn us against each other.’

The author of the book and a former Inspector-General of Police, Mike Okiro, said, ‘Presently, our country demands from all citizens a strong display of true patriotism in whatever we are doing or saying.’

Okiro urged Nigerians to sacrifice in order to move the country forward.

The chairman of the occasion and former head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, who was represented by Mr Nnia Nwodo, former minister of information and president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigo, said that peaceful co-existence between the various ethnic groups had been bastardised. He also lamented that the culture of hard work had been eroded for selfish interest.
