People from the South and Middle Belt region of the country have resolved to work together to ensure restructuring of the country for peace and liberty.
The group also pledged a united front to pick a common Presidential candidate come 2019.
The coalition representing the interests of people from four geo- political zones in the country said after its conference in Lagos that the move is the most visible road to a greater Nigeria.
The movement, Southern Nigeria and Middle Belt Forum for Development, (SNMFD) said the people from the two critical sections of the country have shared history, fears and aspirations urging them to unite behind a Presidential candidate.
It said the unity is necessary to forge harmony with other ethnic groups and social groupings in the country.
In a communiqué signed by the group’s President, Mr Sidney Imohbio, it said people from Southern Nigeria and Middle Belt zone are anxious to see the restructuring of the country in the shortest time possible.
It regretted that in spite of the democratic governance in the country, human lives continue to lay in waste while hope for a renaissance continue to diminish.
It said in the past four years, no fewer than 10,000 lives have been lost to conflict and violence in the country, saying the unity of the South and Middle belt was imperative for the overall goal of a united, strong and flourishing Nigeria.
