The Presidency says those agitating for secession and national conferenc are unelectable people who do not care for the nation’s democracy adding that President Buhari cannot be intimidated by their unbecoming actions.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu who said this on Tuesday at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, after attending an event organised by the APC Professional Forum said those calling for succession are the problems of the country
According to Shehu, people said Buhari is not talking about the unity of this country, but the president had made his position clear that this country is one and is united, and would continue to be united.
He said one thing about Buhari was that no one could intimidate or bully him in anyway by their actions.
“One thing with this president is, you can’t intimidate Buhari, you can’t bully him,” he said. “A lot of these people who are calling for secession, they are the problem of this country. And I am happy that reasonable opinions, voices are now rising.
He added that Afenifere and the Ohanaeze Ndi’gbo had said they would never support secession of Nigeria.
“So, this thing about secession; they had used it in the past. You create secession and break up Nigeria and then, you intimidate the sitting leader and then he opens the booth and he brings money to settle people.
He said Buhari would never pay anyone, saying that it was clear that having ignored all of that, reasonable opinions are coming from those states and from those regions.
