The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha has cleared the air about his statement that there are cracks in Nigeria.
Mustapha said he was quoted out of context and did not really mean that.
In a statement the SGF personally signed himself, Mustapha said he did not suggest that Nigeria will break up, and instead affirmed that the Buhari-led government was committed to a united Nigeria.

It will be recalled that at the Nigeria’s 60th independence anniversary Service in Abuja, Mustapha, who represented Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo said, “Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken but have cracks that could break if not properly addressed. We need to seek the face of God to address the broken walls.”
However, in his personal statement addressing the misconception, he said, “I have observed with concern, the apparent sensitization of the remarks I made at the 60th Independence Anniversary Church Service, where I stood in for His Excellency, the Vice President.

“For the avoidance of doubt, I want to affirm that His Excellency, the Vice President and I remain very firmly and irrevocably committed to the ideal of one indivisible Nigerian nation.
“We are also deeply appreciative of President Muhammadu Buhari’s consistent efforts to strengthen the unity of the Nigerian nation.
“Any suggestion to the contrary is a clear misinterpretation of our common position as a Government.”
