We’ll deal with any one against Nigeria’s unity – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday declared that the Federal Government is ready to contend with anyone who is against the peace and unity of the country.
Buhari said while receiving Eze Abdulfatah Emetumah III, the Offor of Umuofor Kingdom, Oguta LGA, Imo State said anybody that tries to joke with the unity of the country has a problem as long as, “we are alive.’’
He told members of the delegation led by the monarch, who is also the Chief Imam of Oguta that his main objective of serving as an elected public office holder is to make the country better.
‘‘Our single objective is how to make Nigeria better and we will never get tired,’’ the President was quoted in a statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina.
While thanking the delegation for identifying with the progress made so far by his administration in moving the nation forward, he assured them that their well thought out recommendations on engendering unity in the country would be considered.
In his remarks, Eze Emetumah commended the President for demonstrating his love for Nigerians and Nigeria through purposeful leadership in the last three years.
‘‘Your Excellency, from birth you have a mission for Nigeria and you have demonstrated this in your career as a soldier, Minister, Head of State, in PTF and now President.
‘‘You have fought for the unity of this nation and its enemies, we know very well that you won’t tolerate anything that would affect its unity and our collective existence,’’ he said.
The royal father lauded the present administration tackling Boko Haram and improving agriculture.
