President Muhammadu Buhari has given a stern warning to those agitating for the Republic of Biafra as well as Niger Delta militants who are destroying oil installations in the region.
While speaking at the State House in Abuja on Tuesday night at the breaking of fast dinner for members of the Federal Executive Council, President Muhammadu Buhari, warned those agitating for the Republic of Biafra as well as Niger Delta militants who are destroying oil installations in the region.
 
The president who returned to the country on Sunday after a 14-day holiday in London, asked Biafra agitators and the militants to reflect "very seriously" on the Civil War of 1967-1970 "where about two million Nigerians lost their lives."
 
Quote
"And at that time, as young military officers, you hardly heard of anything about petroleum or whatever money you got from it. Look at what Gen. Gowon said: 'To keep Nigeria one is a task that must be done' and every soldier whether he has been to school or not knew what the general meant.
 
"But we were quarrelling with our brothers, we were not fighting an enemy and then somebody is saying that once again, he wants Biafra. I think this is because he was not born when there was Biafra. We have to reflect on the historical antecedents to appreciate what is before us now and what we intend to leave for our children and our grand children,"
Buhari said.
 
The president also stated that Nigeria needed a lot of prayers in view of the current economic and security challenge.
Quote
"We need a lot of prayers. Certainly, with the nation’s economy going down. We haven’t developed the agriculture, we're still trying to talk on those who'll come and develop the solid mineral for us,"
he said.
He said Ramadan provides leaders the opportunity to be more conscious of their responsibilities to the citizens.
 
Quote
"It strengthens our resolve to build our country to make it stronger and to make sure that the incoming generations are sufficiently motivated to be patriotic. It's no news that we are the biggest country in Africa, we're the economy engine of Africa, which are true by the way. But, we must always be patriotic in our dealings with others.

"This month of prayers and service to God, let's keep on these prayers all the times, believing that God in His infinite mercy will listen to our prayers, give us peace, security and better the economy once more so that we can quickly rebuild and even do more for the  country,"
he said.
 
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who spoke on behalf of the cabinet members, thanked Buhari for inviting them for the breaking of fast dinner.

My only take in dis is for d govt to remove their eye in oil and develop other region I mean let other lazy region start producing something to help d economy. all other natural resources are not functioning any longer cus they all have their eye in oil money which they refuse to develop d main source of it.

If its going to take another 10million life to reach freedom, it worth the cause.. The worst ever condition in life is to be a slave of another man.. NIGERIA IS A SLAVE FIRM.. Buhari is an enemy of Black Africans world wide....  Buhari Nature, water, air, earth, sun and every living soul is against you..

Fulanis are known to be the number 1 enemy of black Africans.. They help the Turks to Islamized North, west, east and partly central African, especially congo.. They are also the major reason so called white people where able to colonized black Africans.. Fulanis are stil selling black Africans as slave til present.. FULANIS ARE BLACK AFRICANS ENEMY, SO IS BUHARI TOO.. This is not about TRIBALISM but fact, every one can cross check for themselves..  Wole Soyinka once called Buhari ''TRIBAL BYGOTRY''.
