In a veiled reference to the recent agitation and protests for Biafra nation, President Muhammadu Buhari has proclaimed that Nigeria remains one indivisible entity despite current challenges.
The president was speaking at the Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday while launching the 2016 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Emblem and Appeal Fund.
President Buhari noted that Nigeria had since independence witnessed a lot of internal strife, survived a civil war and remained united, saying this was an eloquent testimony to Nigerians’ determination to remain one people.
“Our nation has recently celebrated 55 years of political independence and continues to remain as one indivisible entity despite several grievous challenges. Since independence, Nigeria has witnessed a lot of internal strife, survived a civil war and has remained united.
“This feat achieved by the country is an eloquent testimony to the determination of our citizens to remain as one people”, he said.
The president said the sacrifices of the nation’s fallen heroes, heroines and veterans who rose up to the security challenges could not go unnoticed.
