BUHARI: Biafra Agitators Not Guided By History


buhari• Says Nigeria Will Remain In OPEC
Despite the slump in crude oil prices, President Muhammadu Buhari has ruled out the possibility of the country quitting the international oil-producing cartel, the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, (OPEC).

Buhari, in an interview he reportedly granted a foreign television outfit, Aljazeera, during his visit to Qatar, where he attended an OPEC meeting, said it was in the best interest of the country to remain with the cartel.

Attempts to get a confirmation from the President’s spokespersons did not yield result, yesterday, but a Presidency source, who was in Doha, confirmed to The Guardian that the President, indeed spoke with the television outfit.

“Yes, I can tell you that Oga spoke to Aljazeera; it is not a new interview. Perhaps they are just broadcasting it now,” the source, who is not authorised to speak on the matter, said.

Asked how he would deal with the Biafra issue, Buhari said the agitators were not being guided by the history.

“Looking for Biafra after two millions people were killed? They are joking with security, and Nigeria won’t tolerate Biafra,” he said.

    To GMB the protesters are still his old ‘Biafran enemy’ of 46 to 49 years ago and he will continue to direct that they continue to be dealt with the only way he knows how – with brute force. More blood will flow.

    This man is just a parochial sick old folk. That sums it up.

    This is an irrefutable confirmation that Buhari is stock in the past! To him, the world of 1967 is still the same now. Biafra agitation has reached a point of no return, because the youths have taken over this lawful quest for freedom. Let’s pray Donald Trump wins, Britain will be forced by US to allow Biafra be. Nothing will stop an idea whose time has come. All hail Biafra!

    As d president of Nigeria,u don’t expect him to open his arms n allow a group of people to divide the country,any sane president will fight to keep his country together. Instead of looking to divide d country,”Biafrans” should look for solutions to their problems and not cause a repeat of what happened last time,we should learn from history,nobody wins in war,there would be casualties on both sides…..God bless Nigeria

    Black people are still slaves and not just slaves but stupid slaves. When all evidences on the ground shows that Nigeria is gone, but still the black person is waiting for millions of his people to die before he do the right thing.

    While the West are patiently waiting to sell their arms and tirelessly pushing the stupid black man to sit on the time bomb just like Britain and his brothers are doing in the case of Nigeria, a black who doesn’t know the word “negotiate and find solutions” continues to sit on explosive. At the end of the day, the blood of million of African innocent children will flow on the streets, fatherless and motherless will fill every where in Africa ironically, millions and Billions of Dollars that belongs to those Africa child will exchange hands and ownership through Arms supply and deplomatic corridors 
    Finally one part, one tribe, or one religion will beat their chest and celebrate their bravery in killing their fellow Africa brothers. Of course not without the West. They will be constantly rimainded by the West how much they helped them to overcome their challenges, then in appreciation, new:contract will be awarded to multinational companies without bidding, trade agreements will be signed without properly studied. Consiqently Africans child suffers without hope. More mosques will be built and more churches will be built also.
