We’ll deal with any one against Nige­ria’s unity – Buhari

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

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.
