Nnamdi Kanu should remove thoughts of a divided Nigeria from his mind – Obasanjo | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has dismissed calls by those advocating the division of the country through the creation of a sovereign Biafra State.


He appealed to those advocating for the division of the country to purge their minds of such notions.
Obasanjo made the call in Kano yesterday when he visited Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at the Government House to commiserate with the people of Kano over the death of Maitama Sule.

He described Nigeria as a land of prosperity where the citizens must continue to learn from each other, live in peace and be each other’s keeper.
The former President said: ‘”I encourage all Nigerians to look forward towards a future as a united country flowing with milk and honey.
“Nigeria is a country where everyone is a stakeholder, the thought of a divisible Nigeria should disappear from the minds of those leading such a campaign.
“Nigerians need to learn from Maitama Sule’s experience, wisdom and what he believed and preached.”
Obasanjo, who extolled the virtues of Maitama Sule, described the late Danmasanin Kano as a patriotic Nigerian whose shoes would be difficult to fill.
He stated that the likes of the former diplomat and elder statesman are rare, and that of those still alive, very few are of his quality.
He identified such honest and exceptional statesmen who are revered like the late Maitama Sule to include former President Shehu Shagari, Sule Gaya and Richard Akinjide.

He further stated that the death of Maitama Sule was a loss to all Nigerians, and that everyone should be condoled over the loss.

The two-time Head of State urged all Nigerians to emulate the late statesman by rendering the type of services Nigeria benefited from him.

  7. SEE THIS VIRUS OF AN OBASANJO, ONE OF THE ARCHITECTS OF NIGERIA'S DILENMA. IS HE FIT TO COMMENT ON THE IGBOS. HE HAD TWO CHANCES TO MAKE NIGERIA GREAT BUT FAILED WOEFULLY. WHERE IS NIGERIA GOING WITH THIS ALMAJIRI SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT. ARE THE YORUBAS SATISFIED? THE IGBOS ARE NOT. WHAT OF THE SOUTH-SOUTH, NORTH CENTRAL, NORTH EAST? ARE THEY? EVEN THE ALMAJIRI CALLED ABDULAZEEZ IBRAHIM JALIO ABOVE? IS HE SATISFIED WITH THE POVERTY AMONG HIS PEOPLE. THEY ALL HAVE CRAB MENTALITY SYNDROME. THEY WANT EVERYBODY GUMMED AND GLUED TO THIS POVERTY IN THE MIDST OF PLENTY. THINGS ARE EITHER CORRECTED OR LET'S LEAVE THOSE WHO WANTS TO GET OUT TO GO. NIGERIA FROM INCEPTION HAS BEEN A FRAUD RIGHT FROM THE WHORRING NAMING- CEREMONY THROUGH COLONIALISM TO THED PRESENT DAY. LET'S DRIVE WELL TOGETHER OR WE ALLOW PEACEFULLY THOSE WHO WANT TO DISEMBARK TO DO SO. NOTHING IS BY FORCE: MOVING TOGETHER OR GOING SEPARATE WAYS. BUT LET'S DO WHATEVER PEACEFULLY WITHOUT RANCOUR. MUST SOME PEOPLE REMAIN SLAVES IN THE SO-CALLED GIANT OF AFRICA OR OPT OUT AND BECOME FREE TO PURSUE SELF DETERMINATION. THE IGBOS ARE MARGINALISED. TRUE. THEN OTHER TRIBES ARE SINGING THE SAME SONG ALTHOUGH SACRASTICALLY. EVEN AT THAT IF WE ARE ALL MARGINALISED IS THAT NOT ENOUGH REASON TO FIND OUT AND QUESTION WHO IS MARGINALISING ALL OF US AND THEN CORRECT THINGS OR MAKE THEM ACCOUNTABLE? SOME ELECT FOR ALL OF US TO KEEP QUIET. NO! WE ALL CAN'T. HE DIES IN ALL WHO KEEPS SILENT IN THE FACE OF TYRRANNY. (Wole Soyinka). LET'S FIGHT THIS INJUSTICE TOGETHER. DERIVATION, TRUE AND FISCAL FEDERALISM AND RESTUCTURING WILL MAKE ALL OF US WAKEN UP TO OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND REALITIES. Jay 2, Abuja.
