Finally, Buhari 'surrenders' woos Nnamdi Kanu, others on Biafra, urges him to rethink, reveals plans to develop S/East

on Fri 02 Dec 2016, 10:10 am


In what appeared to be a reaction to Kanu Nnamdi's coaccused's angry outburst on Thursday President Muhammadu Buhari broke his silence and reiterated the essence of the unity of Nigeria, urging those contemplating its break-up to have a rethink.
He made the call while speaking at a meeting with the Council of South-East Traditional Rulers at the State House, Abuja.
Buhari, according to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, warned that the question of having another country out of Nigeria was misplaced.
“The question of having another country out of Nigeria is going to be very difficult. From 1914, we have more than 200 cultures living with one another. God had endowed this country with natural resources and talented people. We should concentrate on these and be very productive,” the President said.
Addressing specific issues raised in the address by the traditional rulers, the President gave the assurance that the South-East will also benefit from the new railway architecture being put in place by his administration.
On their request for more representation for the South-East in his government, the President said that he was “very conscious of the sensitivities of the South East”, on account of which, he gave the region’s four out of five states senior ranking ministers in the Cabinet.
He appealed to the traditional rulers to persuade their people to give his government a chance and to continue to serve as beacons of culture and traditions of their people.
He assured the delegation that kidnapping and cattle rustling, which he described as “unfortunate” will be the government’s next target, now that “we have managed to calm down the North-East.”
