Biafra: Why Buhari Must Be Careful – Hon. Abdullahi Maibasira

Press Statement

Biafra: PDP Cautions Buhari, APC Of The Danger Ahead
….Seeks Immediate Dialogue With S/East Representatives and Leaders.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is deeply concerned about the unfolding political events and developments in the South East and South South of Nigeria.

The PDP also stated that it is not comfortable with the methods being applied by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government in handling of restive youths in the South South and South East geo-political zones, who are agitating under the Biafra movement, and urged the President to personally intervene as the matter affects the territorial integrity of Nigeria.

The party said it is concerned that the Federal Government and its agencies have failed to approach the situation with the inclusiveness and seriousness it deserves , but have instead been resorting to the use of security forces.

PDP National Youth Leader, Hon. Abdullahi MaiBasira said in a statement on Saturday that President Buhari and his party should be held to account for the escalation of the agitation, which threatens the unity and national security interests of Nigeria as an indivisible entity.

The PDP also urged the ruling party to ensure and guarantee an inclusive administration that will promote harmony among all sections of the country.

The party further notes the seemingly lack of any clear-cut policy direction that concerns the development, mainstreaming and inclusion of young people in the country by the Federal Government, a worrisome issue that brings to question APC’s campaign promise to generate and give 3 million jobs annually to Nigerian Youths.

“The fact that none of the President’s ministerial appointees confirmed by Senate is below 40 years also puts to question APC’s belief for the next generation of leaders, mentorship and transfer of responsibility. So far, the resultant effect of this lack of clear-cut policy is the stagnation of the economy and lay-off of thousands of people from their jobs.

“Rather than the use of force as an option which usually fails as a solution in this type of self-inflicted socio-political problem, President Buhari should as a matter of national interest and practical necessity, make haste to call representatives and leaders of the South East for discussions before the situation deteriorates”, the party said.

The PDP said President Buhari and his party should know that sidelining any section of the country is bound to generate unhealthy relations among all integral parts of the Nigerian people.

The party said that cohesion, development, prosperity and unity should be paramount in government policy and warned that unless and until all sections of the country are accommodated, certain sections will experience civil tension and agitations as a means of expressing their discontent.

“Finally, as young people who believe in the present and future stability of Nigeria; we urge President Buhari to see himself as the father of the nation and try to open his heart to all by carrying everybody along and through that, create enabling environment for peace, progress and development in the interest of all”, the statement said.

    The ceaseless and electrifying eulogies that copiously trailed the death of Nelson Mandela may have deeply misled and/or negatively influenced our own Nnamdi Kanu.
    Someone is working overtime to have Barracks Obama attend his funeral in Nigeria; Obama is wise; he understands the concept and meaning of true patriotism.He would effortlessly draw a dichotomy between a Freedom fighter and a Rebel; between Nelson and Nnamdi!.
    Someone may have lamentably misunderstood Christ when He said “do not fear those that can kill the body but cannot kill the soul…” He wasn’t referring to the Nigerian Military.
    Evidently,Kanu’s admiration for Madiba has clearly metamorphosed into this renewed invigoration for a secessionist group.
    This struggle is quite sudden, funny, needlessly aggressive, unexplainable and clearly demonstrates the worrisome forgetfulness of the Ibo group!
    Someone is unable to decipher the disturbing tone of agony of the Ndigbos in the literary piece “Terrors of War” by Nnamdi Agbakoba.
    Ojukwu Odumegwu (of blessed memory) would have definitely reprimanded the recent rebellious attempts by Kanu to frustrate the present government of Nigeria.
    The Ojukwu I later know,would have resisted all or any attempts by anybody whosever to further reduce the enviable population of the Ndigbos.
    When has electoral victory become an offence in Nigeria?.
    I sincerely hope Nnamdi Kanu would relocate his family to Nigeria before applying for a repeat of 1967~1970!.
    I wish Nnamdi Kanu the best of LUCK!
