President Buhari's Speech Today....

President Muhammadu Buhari who was away on a medical Vacation for over 100 days addressed the nation at 7am this morning. Here's the full text of the speech below: 




My dear citizens, I am very grateful to God and to all Nigerians for their prayers. I am pleased to be back on home soil among my brothers and sisters.

2. In the course of my stay in the United Kingdom, I have been kept in daily touch with events at home. Nigerians are robust and lively in discussing their affairs, but I was distressed to notice that some of the comments, especially in the social media have crossed our national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. This is a step too far.

3. In 2003 after I joined partisan politics, the late Chief Emeka Ojukwu came and stayed as my guest in my hometown Daura. Over two days we discussed in great depth till late into the night and analysed the problems of Nigeria. We both came to the conclusion that the country must remain one and united.

4. Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable. We shall not allow irresponsible elements to start trouble and when things get bad they run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood.

5. Every Nigerian has the right to live and pursue his business anywhere in Nigeria without let or hindrance.

6. I believe the very vast majority of Nigerians share this view.


7. This is not to deny that there are legitimate concerns. Every group has a grievance. But the beauty and attraction of a federation is that it allows different groups to air their grievances and work out a mode of co-existence.

8. The National Assembly and the National Council of State are the legitimate and appropriate bodies for national discourse.

9. The national consensus is that, it is better to live together than to live apart.

10. Furthermore, I am charging the Security Agencies not to let the successes achieved in the last 18 months be a sign to relax.

11. Terrorists and criminals must be fought and destroyed relentlessly so that the majority of us can live in peace and safety.

12. Therefore we are going to reinforce and reinvigorate the fight not only against; elements of Boko Haram which are attempting a new series of attacks on soft targets · kidnappings, farmers versus herdsmen clashes, in addition to ethnic violence fuelled by political mischief makers. We shall tackle them all.

13. Finally, dear Nigerians, our collective interest now is to eschew petty differences and come together to face common challenges of; economic security, political evolution and Integration, as well as lasting peace among all Nigerians.

14. I remain resolutely committed to ensuring that these goals are achieved and maintained. I am so glad to be home.

15. Thank you and may God bless our dear Nation.

This Buhari guy is a big joke. I didn't listen to his 'speech'. The greatest favor he can do Nigeria is to resign. He simply cannot do the job.

God will punish this useless old fool. Tackle boko haram and Fulani herdsmen first before facing other groups or individuals.

Seeing Tunde bank Anthony make a fool of himself on channels TV this morning left me speechless. A man so vapid, uncultured, and utterly disrespectful shouldn't be seen or heard contributing to any discourse of this magnitude. It is way beyond your intellectual capacity bros. How dare you call Nigerian 'Oliver twist'? Are we asking for too much? There are over 3 million professionals currently unemployed and the only thing your gbegiri mouth can say is that lagos state govt has employment plans and has employed many people. Why would a sane man use lagos as a yardstick for an an entire nation? That Woodrow Wilson comparison was the height! It's glaring that the apc party want Nigerians to swallow their shit with without any form of resistance. This is a democratic dispensation. It can not work that way! The power belongs to the people and not an individual or a select group. You can not run a sovereign nation with diverse ethnic groups like it's your family house. And until the differences and problems plaguing us are addressed, there will be no progress. As for the other guests, you made my morning sirs.

Should the elites be the ones deciding the fate of Nigeria or should it be the masses?

I am personal waging war spiritually against every enemy of this nation. All my life, I have never prayed for Nigeria like I do now and I know God will put all our enemies to shame. Fellow Nigerians, instead of cursing and making negative comments, let's channel our energy to praying for our nation. God's word also commanded that we pray for our leaders and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. God bless everyone.

Yeah.APC and their myopic views will not cease to amaze me.Comparing the citizens of a nation to Oliver Twist is the height of it and I guess they are happy with the way things are going on.

We have freedom of speech and that was the same freedom that gave them the victory in the last election. So they should get use to it.

With the harsh economic environment, all PMB has to say is how to make Nigeria one indivisible state. All these agitations are symptoms of an ailing economy which political gladiators would take advantage of by fanning the embers of political mistrust. Kai, we are far from development. So sad.
