The Presidency through the Senior Special Assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, has warned the British Lawmakers not to interfere on the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, issues in the British Parliament.
Shehu said Nigeria is not yet ripped to be split into a different country, because, Nnamdi Kanu has no knowledge of what the present government is doing to strengthening development among the six geo-political zones in the country.
He discarded the assumption that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had been folding its arms while structures collapse in the country, saying that the administration had been devoting quality attention and resources to all the issues raised in the letter.
According to Shehu, the petition filed against Buhari’s administration neither General Danjuma nor Nnamdi Kanu deserved not to be taken seriously, citing their personal antecedents, including the fact that Danjuma, as Minister of Defense, between 1999 and 2003, supervised the putting down of both ethnic-religious uprisings, while Kanu had been using religion as a guide.
“At the same time, as we take note of the lawmakers’ letter, it is also important to stress to our partners and colleagues in the United Kingdom that not all who press them have the best interests of either democratic governance or peaceful coexistence in mind.
“For example, the former Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, named and quoted in the letter as a source on military matters, relinquished that position some 40 years ago – in 1979. He was last in a government position 17 years ago in 2003
The British lawmakers replied whether you support it or not The Republic of Biafra must stand this year.
