I Will Rather Die Than See Nnamdi Kanu Divide Nigeria.- Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday vowed that his government would fight again if need be to secure the unity of Nigeria. He vowed to deal with the agitators for the creation of Biafra State, who he said wanted to disintegrate Nigeria. Buhari spoke while paying homage to the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, at his palace.

The president said that there was a serious need for Nigerians to work hard to prevent the country
from collapse.

Buhari said: “That boy (Nnamdi Kanu of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB), who is calling for the separation of Nigeria, he was not born when we fought for the country’s unity during the civil war.” He said that it was quite unfortunate that over two million people were killed during the civil war, all in an effort to maintain the unity of the country. He said division is “a situation we cannot allow to repeat itself.”

“I am ready to fight back to defend the country from those agitating for the creation of Biafra State, even if we will get drowned,” the president stated. Buhari, who said he had undergone discipline from his parents and teachers while growing up as a teenager coupled with the good training he got as a military officer, said that he would never condone indiscipline from people who did not mean well for the country.

The president also said that the ongoing war on corruption was not aimed at witch-hunting anyone or group of people in the country. He vowed that those that looted public treasury would not go scot-free since the country and the citizens had been treated woefully within the last 16 years.

The president pledged his administration’s readiness to ensure justice among all Nigerians. He said the public treasury was looted by a few individuals to enrich themselves, adding that the country was left with empty treasury.

On the current economic hardship being experienced in the country, the president attributed such hardship to dwindling oil revenue occasioned by the unstable global oil price. He, therefore, called on Nigerians to diversify their means of livelihood by engaging in agricultural activities to alleviate their sufferings.

“People should go back to farm; those that cannot farm should source for self-reliance programmes which is better than stealing.” In his remarks, the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabiru Usman, called on the Federal Government to fulfill its promises of completing the dredging of River Niger, as well as the Katsina State water and dam projects to boost irrigation farming in the state.

The Emir also called for the Federal Government’s intervention in reviving teacher-training colleges to uplift the quality of education in the country.

He enjoined Nigerians, particularly the elite, to support and show more understanding to the Buhari- led administration by offering special prayers for the success of the government.

Buhari, however, solicited the support of traditional rulers, religious leaders and well-meaning Nigerians to mobilise the citizenry toward serving the interest of the country, at all times. In his remarks, the Emir commended the president for the steps so far taken by his administration to give a new vitsa of hope on the future of the country.

  1. The Niger Delta's patiently endured all degradation of their land by oil exploration and abandonment by the past government,surprisingly revolt on government that would attend to their aspirations, these are reasons why the struggle they lay claims on is entirely dubious.

  2. If anybody is dividing the country it is Buhari. He already segmented it when he talked about 97% and 5% and also via his lopsided appointments.
