President Muhammadu Buhari has once again made it clear that the unity of Nigeria is not up for grabs and that those contemplating its break-up should have a rethink.
He stated this at a meeting with the Council of South-East Traditional Rulers at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.
In a statement released by his spokesperson, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari warned that no country will be formed out of Nigeria.
“The question of having another country out of Nigeria is going to be very difficult,” he said.
“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”, he added.
Responding to the traditional rulers’ request for more representation for the South-East in his government, Buhari said he was “very conscious of the sensitivities of the South East”.
He also went further to appreciate the good work of the Ministers from the region in his cabinet, stating that “they are doing very well for the country.
