We Will Identify And Deal With Those Seeking To Divide The Country - Buhari Blows Hot
The Nigerian President, Mohammed Buhari has said his government will identify and deal with perceived adversaries who want the country [Nigeria] to be divided.

President Buhari made the assurance while receiving a delegation of Borno/Yobe Elders Forum, on Tuesday, in Abuja.

The country, over the last few years has witnessed tremendous setback and on the verge of collapse following the emergence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, the largest mass movement of people agitating and seeking, peacefully, the restoration of an independent sovereign Biafra nation forcefully annexed into Nigeria by British warlord, Frederick Lugard.

Kanu's message for Biafra emancipation tends to have awakened the docile spirits of other ethnicities within the "geographical expression" –Nigeria, as defined by chief Obafemi Awolowo; birthing an Oduduwa agitator, Sunday Igboho who is at the forefront of agitating for Oduduwa Republic.

In a statement published by the presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu on Tuesday, it stated that the stability of the country is of paramount interest to Buhari and Federal Government will continue to work towards it despite the actions of a few people.

He said, "We need this country. We will continue to work for its stability. I feel that whatever happens, we will continue to make it, and will keep on praying to God so that for those who feel that they don’t need Nigeria, we will succeed over their intentions and actions.”

The President attributed the upheavals in some parts of the country to a few people with resources and influence, assuring that they will be identified and dealt with in due course.

“I am confident that we will eventually convince the small number of people with resource and influence that are a nuisance to this great country. God willing, we will identify them, and deal with them. I am extremely concerned about your constituency like the rest of the country.”

Buhari also noted the request for the upgrade and development of infrastructure in the states and assured that while he would do his best in acceding to the requests, he would however, prioritise development in education.

“We are aware of the infrastructure deficit. Our priorities will be education because all our citizens  know that children within a certain age must receive it otherwise if they miss it, the future is destroyed.”
