According to report from Leadership Newspaper, President Muhammadu Buhari has broken silence about those agitating for Biafra and Oodua Nation. The call for disintegration from Nigeria continues to heighten up on daily basis as some groups felt they have been politically marginalized.
The Nigerian government seems not to be interested in any call for disintegration as they felt the best option is embracing peace and unity as they work hard to see that the nation is being restructured.
Muhammadu Buhari who is well known as a no nonsense man during his tenure as Nigeria Military Head of State disclosed that the main reason behind the action of these agitators was all down to power desperation. He attributed it to people who are so obsessed and eager to get into power by all means. According to the president they came up with an idea to call for disintegration and which he feels is nothing other than a blackmail.
The president made his opinion about the call for Biafra and Oodua referendum known to the public, as he sent out Eid-el-Fitr (Sallah) wishes to all Muslims across the globe. He called on everyone to embrace unity in diversity and always remember to be each other’s brother’s keeper because we are all one under the sun irrespective of religion or ethnic differences.
