Buhari Tells NYSC Corps Members In Daura ''Tell Your People To Forget Biafra''

President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Daura called on Nigerian youths to make the country great again through pursuit of knowledge, patriotism and commitment to values that promote national unity.




Receiving over 100 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in Daura local government area, in his residence, President Buhari pledged his unalloyed commitment to the unity and prosperity of Nigeria.


He urged them to remain focused in life, pursue their dreams and reject those fanning embers of discord and disintegration of Nigeria.
The President, who specially recognised corps members from the Niger Delta and South-Eastern states serving in Daura, praised the vision of former President Yakubu Gowon in setting up the scheme in 1973.

The President said the scheme had creditably promoted national unity and cohesion by exposing young people to the uniqueness and cultural diversity of Nigeria.
“I asked for those from the other extreme of Nigeria because I very much appreciate the NYSC scheme and whenever I see General Gowon, I always thank him for that”, he declared.

Speaking specifically to corps members from the South Eastern states,
the President said: “Tell your colleagues who want Biafra to forget about it.’’
“As a military commander, I walked from Degem, a border town between the north and the east, to the border between Cameroons and Nigeria.

“I walked on my foot for most of the 30 months that we fought the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, in which at least 2 million Nigerians were killed.
“We were made by our leaders to go and fight Biafra not because of money or oil, because oil was not critical factor then, but because of one Nigeria.
“So if leaderships at various levels failed, it was not the fault of the rest of Nigerians who have no quarrel with one another.

“So please tell your colleagues that we must be together to build this country. It is big enough for us and potentially big enough in terms of resources.
”Those who work hard will earn a respectable living. I have seen this country, I fought for this country and I will continue to work for the unity of this country,’’ the President said.

In his remarks, Mr Egbewumi Adebolu, the Corps Liaison Officer in Daura, thanked the President for the honour of receiving them and making their stay in Daura memorable.
He said the youths strongly believed in the programme of the President to reduce unemployment and create jobs for more Nigerians.

Adebolu thanked the President for his personal gifts of cows, bags of rice and cash to corps members in the community for Salah celebration.

Ask the keyboard warriors agitating for Biafra if they are ready to lay down thier lives? They think it is about shouting Biafra on social media.

Anon12:26 Na wetin carry Lagos enter this talk? Your hatred for igbos will kill you. U people should start boasting and bragging with the true Yoruba Lands that are wretched and under developed and look like war torn areas from the 18th century ie Osun Ekiti Ogun Oyo and Ondo. These are real Yoruba lands with poverty and destitution staring inhabitants in the face. . Lagos is a no man's land.Have you wondered why Hausa people fought back in mile 12,slaughtered and chased ur people away? Bcos they are In a no man's land.

One think I want to believe is the fact that President Buhari means well for Nigeria,but the truth is that he is 'Cursed' take it to the bank. Why is it that whenever he rules,there is recession? The last time same thing,now the same thing. He should just retire abeg,we don't need him,the curse on him is affecting the nation as a whole.

Anonymous said...

Whether Lagos is no mans land or not. It is certainly not part of Igbo land. Lagos is in Nigeria so go back to biafra.

celynkay said...

Buhari is a stupid old fool. Clueless idiot.

@anon 14.07 SHUT THE FUCK UP, and stop saying Lagos is no man's Lagos.
I come from Epe in Lagos state, same place Ambode comes from.
Why not don't step ur foot in any Yoruba land at all if they are undeveloped. Still yet ur Igbo ppl will pitch tent there and refuse to leave.
There are real Lagosians, EPE, BADAGRY,,IKORODU,,ISALE EKO. Go educate urself you dumbo. The Ojora's , Saro's these are all real lagosians.
That is why they told ya'll they will drown you. No mans land my foot.
You better be appreciative we Lagosians/Yoruba's are accommodating of other tribes. If your state was soooo good, why do you people always have a settlement in every backward Yoruba state as u claim.

Anon 16:00 Lagos is a no man's land till eternity. No one is leaving anywhere for anybody.U people should start bragging with true yoruba lands and not a no man's land.
If Lagos is truly a yoruba land, why did hausa people fight back, slaughter and chase you people away when you wanted to play ur games them?

Amacastel said...

U knw how Lagos look like if igbos travel for Xmas thats the way Lagos will be without igbos, so Lagos is nothing without an igbo man quote me anywhere.

Anon 16:00 Lagos is a no man's land till eternity.No body will leave for any body. This is the reason hausa people fought back,slaughtered and chase you people away when you wanted to drive them away from mile 12.
U are from Epe, Lagos state but your grandfather was from Modakeke, Osun state. Stop making a fool of yourself. Start making mouth with your Osun State,ur root.

Anonymous said...

All Nigerians are welcome in Lagos including Hausa's because they are Nigerians. Igbos are not Nigerians and Lagos is in Nigeria. You will leave Lagos whether you like it or not when you create your Biafra. You cannot take Lagos to Biafra so start dealing with it now. You want to leave Nigeria but you don't want to leave Lagos, you will all die if you don't leave Lagos.

When the time comes ibo will cry and beg to leave Lagos

See how they are bitter over Lagos Yoruba land
This is why they are the only hated tribe in Nigeria
Biafra war will be a small thing compared to what will happen to them when they think they can lay claim to Lagos
Very greedy people with no morals and gratitude

Goan soak Ijebu garri lol. Your temperature dey hot. The hatred is tangible I'm very Igbo and I love your sad soul despite the anger

Love always

Anon idiot 17.31 , whom did they slaughter like fowl during Biafra.
Goan form your Biafra and die of hunger like your lot did back then.
Lagos belongs to the Yorubas and any other reasonable tribe that decides to give respect to dos whom respect is due.
Your lot went to Oba of Lagos to pay homage, d man said he will drown ur lot. U ppl grumble grumble, u do anythn abt am? You for vex and leave na. Shameless ritualist, drug pushers, fake drugs peddlers oshi. Shameless tribe dat dey keep killing allover. Their land is so good but they won't seat there.
When Biafra start dat time why u ppl no remain for Lagos if it was ur land.
Nobi ur land, when tine cum you go carry ur load inside Ghana must go and go to dos ur bushes. When dey finish kidnapping urself as dey usually do. You go run go North. As u ppl can't sit in ur forsaken lands.

They want to carry Lagos to Biafra. I laugh in ndi Igbo........
You people should add Abuja to it. Then after that you will add Niger Delta to it, and carry the oil there also. Akukooooooo

Anonymous said...

Buhari the evil hypocrite. Telling southern nysc corpers to forget Biafra but he has been obsessed with drilling Lake Chad for 2 buckets of oil since 1982. He should just resign

Buhari loves to stoke tensions. Was all that diatribe necessary? Mumu.

I am from Delta. Igbo people are arrogant. There are all over the west making a living yet they won't respect the Yoruba. Even in the north, they are everywhere, they get killed and their properties destroyed during religious riots there, yet they won't leave. But in the west where they are welcome and do their trade without hindrance, they don't respect them.

@amacastel. The east shouldn't be a please where you visit in December and leave in January. Stay there and make it something. Leave Lagos to be nothing. Biko!

I travel to east every month sometimes more than once I don't travel to east once in a yr never me wey be original nwa otunkwo most of my investment is in the east cos I no fit shout and am too smart to be an inferior to anybody any investment here must have c of O cos I refused to be @ the mercy of any lazy modo claiming land owner while he is a tenant in his own so call LAND OF ORIGIN. Lagos very busy roads become a football field every Xmas period. That alone should tell you that without us u will go hungry just like kwasiokor has grip madiguri ,adamawa state cos of bokoharam is being used to make igbos leave who suffer more now? ofcourse na them cos they can't even work for ordinary nri onu cos na only igbo man can employ them as gate man, cleaners, shoe makers, u dy drag land while 85% of houses in this state belong to an igbo man. After the war it took us less than 10yrs to stand back on our feet an igbo man can start afresh anytime & still overtake you. Pray to have an igbo man as a husband or inlaw then you go for thanksgiving in the church
