Great Achievement For President Buhari As He Makes Peace With Majority Of The South-East, Abandons The Secessionist.
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the Igbos and other sections of the country need to be accommodated for a greater Nigeria.
Buhari made this disclosure through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in Abuja, on Thursday, while receiving a coalition of Igbo progressive groups, under the auspices of the Igbo People of Nigeria, IPON, at the Unity Fountain, in Abuja.
He said: “I will like to thank you for this solidarity rally. When you hold a rally like this, it is not for President Muhammadu Buhari alone, but also for the country.
“As the Igbos will always say, we need one another to succeed. We need each other for our country to succeed, and we need to uphold the country for generations unborn’’, he said.
Adesina added that, he listened to the speech by the Leader of the group, Uche Cheguo, and was impressed that South-Easterners continue to value the efforts of the President in ensuring a united and progressive country.
The Special Adviser conveyed the goodwill of the President to the group, promising to relay their message to him when he returns to the country from Turkey.
In his speech, Cheguo said President Buhari’s penchant for resolving conflicts through dialogue, demonstrates his love for the South-East, and other parts of the country.
“We want to point out that the visit of our Leaders to Your Excellency, should eradicate any doubts as to where the loyalty and allegiance of Igbo people lie.
“We are absolutely behind your government, even as we categorically affirm that we have no animosity towards state institutions. We cannot and must not be defined by a minority that is vocal and violent.’’
