Nigeria will remain one no matter what – Buhari

The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress [APC], Muhammad Buhari, has said that no amount of provocative and reckless statement from politicians struggling to entrench their selfish desire will break the unity of Nigeria.

Mr. Buhari spoke during a roundtable meeting with some members of the business community in Kano, Tuesday.

“Those who are determine by all means to create a rift and cause anarchy in the name of politics would fail just the way they failed some years ago when we struggled to keep the nation one,” Mr. Buhari said.

Referring to the Nigerian civil war, the Biafran war, which took place from July, 1967 to January, 1970, Mr. Buhari said, “I marched for good 30 months, through all sorts of atmosphere in a bid to keep Nigeria one but today some disgruntled elements because of their selfish thoughts and beliefs are hell-bent on dividing the nation along ethnic and religious lines.”

Mr. Buhari expressed his alarm at the sight of millions of young people that follow him throughout his campaign shouting his name.

“These young men who have no job, nothing, they constitute a great danger to this country,” he said. “That is why it is imperative to put job creation as one of the serious issues at stake because these people who followed our convoys, shouting our names, are doing it with the message that they should be rescued from their predicament and the earlier we do that, the better.”

Mr. Buhari emphasized that security, which is one of the focal point of his campaign, would mean curtailing, and totally eradicating the insurgency and returning peace to the people.

He assured that he would build a Nigeria that is a producing country not a nation reliant on foreign finished products.

“If China would have “made in China” and people are struggling to get it why not Nigeria?” he asked. “We should also have “made in Nigeria” products going out from our great country.”

    Yes GMB if China can do it why not Nigeria, manufacturing cheap consumer goods of luxury. General, in 1987, Dubai in the United Arab Emirate started with Jabel Ali Free Trade Zone at Jabel Ali Port. Nigeria started with Calabar Export Processing Zone in 1992. Five years gap. As of today Dubai is a success story. Under your leadership and determination, Free Trade Zones are easy instrument to transform Nigeria. This concept transform Republic of Island, Taiwan, South Korea, China, UAE to mention a few. In Nigeria, it is a source of corruption and monopolistic tendency. Wishing us success in endeavor to rescue and reform Nigeria for good. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

    Does Bokohari really believe in Nigeria despite his 1985 vote for his Fulani brother from Niger Republic to be the Secretary General of the Organisation of African Unity (now African Union), and voted against Nigerian Dr Peter Onu, then acting secretary general? Tanzania’s Julius Nyerere reportedly begged Bokohari to “give us Peter.” What a serial conman!

  • Mohamed Bello

    with all due respect GMB, Ur previous unstatesman statements of soaking the whole nation with blood should what happened in 2011 repeats itself is a direct negation of ur current position that this country will remain one no matter what.. are u saying this now because Nigerians have come to the realization of ur true person? unfortunately for u sir, we have resolved not to give u any space in aso rock especially as u have refused to give any political space for the younger generation especially those from the North.

    You missed an important point Mr Jibrin, you ended your write up with out mentioning Air Commodore Umar Mohammed, a close ally of Magu who was earlier arrested and is being protected by the DSS. Also, Magu recently made a strategic blunder by publicly accusing the DSS of not having the legal back up to arrest and prosecute Judges. This was a direct attack on Mr. President. No head of any agency will have the guts to arrest such highly place individuals with out a presidential node. Also, he was either ignorant or he mischieviously forgot to note that among the powers of the DSS is to investigate economic crimes of national security dimension and (any other thing the President and C in C may direct from time to time). Also, I strongly believe that the DSS report forwarded to the Senate was approved by the President before it was taken to the Senate. No head of any security or Intelligence Agency no matter how darft he may be will jump his primary consumer and feed a third party with security on Intelligence report. Its a pity Magu an upright officer failed to understand the politics around the corridors of power.
