Human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana has stated that the unity of Nigeria is based on the ‘ruthless exploitation of the working people.’
He said this while speaking at the 24th Convocation Lecture of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti.
Falana who challenged state governors to share powers with the President on the issues of security and economy, averred that the rich are united in exploiting Nigeria’s national resources.
“Unity means the component existence of Nigeria. The fact that the unity of the country is based on the ruthless exploitation of the working people, it is of no moment to the members of the ruling classes.
“For me, since the rich are united in exploiting our national resources, the exploited poor and oppressed people should equally unite to free themselves from the shackles of poverty.”
