President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday has ensued that Nigeria as a nation would not be separated and remains one united country. President Buhari’s speech was made with respect to the recent agitation made by the separatist group, Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), for the release of Radio Biafra boss, Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) and also for the realization of Biafra.
The President made this speech today at the Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, while launching the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Emblem and Appeal Fund. Buhari said the fact that Nigeria had since independence remained united, was an eloquent testimony to Nigerians’ determination to remain one people.
He said: “Our nation has recently celebrated 55 years of political independence and continues to remain as one indivisible entity despite several grievous challenges.
“Since independence, Nigeria has witnessed a lot of internal strife, survived a civil war and has remained united. This feat achieved by the country is an eloquent testimony to the determination of our citizens to remain as one people.”
President Buhari added that the sacrifices of the nation’s fallen heroes, heroines and veterans who rose up to the security challenges could not go uncelebrated as the country works towards a more developed, peaceful and united nation.
The Nigerian Army has therefore warned the pro-Biafra protesters of their acts, noting that they may be charged for felony if they continue with their agitations.
