Abuja (WorldStage Newsonline)-- Dr. Tunji Braithwaite, National  Leader of Nigerian Advance Party (NAP),  was sighted at the  State House, Abuja on Tuesday where it was believed to have met President Goodluck Jonathan.

Braithwaite, an advocate of Convocation of Sovereign National Conference in a chat with newsmen stressed that the nation will not disintegrate.

The former presidential candidate of NAP who was clad in his trade mark three-piece green kaftan, came in at about 5.30 and left about an hour later.

While not disclosing what was discussed behind closed doors, Braithwaite who in recent times had voiced out his opinion on the security challenges confronting the country, declared, "I'm here for the good of the nation. Nobody can destroy this nation. We will not allow it."

Earlier this year, he warned President Jonathan against seeking foreign assistance in resolving the issue of the dreaded Islamic sec, Boko Haram.

In his assessment of the security situation in the country then, especially the terror being unleashed on innocent citizens in the northern part of the country, Braithwaite, had at a media parley, said conceding to the pressure for the assistance of the international community, rather than solving the problem would aggravate it.

He said “we are sad at the loss of several lives in some part of the North. We are not condoning the act of terrorism. We fear that the act might escalate in the country.

He was also one of the 44 distinguished Nigerians alongside former Minister of Education and Youth Development, Prof. Ben Nwabueze,  who were tear-gassed by the police in Lagos during the fuel subsidy protest. He then dragged the Federal Government before the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja, asking for N440 million as damages for violating their fundamental rights.
