JUST IN: Buhari sends fresh message to Biafra, Yoruba Nation agitators

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday told separatists that Nigeria will remain one nation.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that separatist activities are notable in the country, with many southeast residents desirous of a Biafra sovereign nation, and others of southwest extraction clamouring for the creation of a Yoruba nation.

Speaking at the State House, Abuja, while receiving in audience former state chairmen of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), President Buhari said the country must not go to war again, in the name of agitation for separation.

“Our main objective is the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We are human beings. We have our weaknesses, but I can assure you that the patriotism in us is hard earned,” Buhari said.

“We have gone through all the troubles from 15th of January 1966 to date. You know what I mean by this, we have killed a million of ourselves in order to keep this country together.

“I don’t think there can be any practical experience more than that. We are Nigerians. God willing, we remain Nigerians and Nigeria will remain one.”
