President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday reiterated that Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable, telling those nurturing a breakup to bury such thoughts.
The President spoke at a meeting he had with the South-East Council of Traditional Rulers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“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.
Buhari assured the leaders that the Southeast will also benefit from the Federal Government’s railway project.
He appealed to the traditional rulers from the South East to persuade their people to give his government a chance and to continue to serve as beacons of culture and traditions of their people.
