THE National Summit Group (NSG), led by elder statesman,  Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, has canvassed for a national dialogue to hold before its centenary anniversary, noting that it will help foster unity in the country.

It also appealed to the Nigerian Governors Forum to actively and visibly support the group in its advocacy and enlightenment crusade towards “enhancing Nigeria’s democracy, unity and federalism, premised on mutual understanding, justice, equity, rule-of-law, and non-violence.”

In a statement by its Executive Secretary, Mr Tony Uranta, the NSG noted that holding the  dialogue, was an imperative task as it remained the most fundamental strategy to protecting the unity and stability of the Nigerian nation, for the next hundred years.
