President Muhammadu Buhari has accused a serving member of the National Assembly as well as other high profile Nigerians, as the arrow head of the sponsorship of Mazi Nnamdi Kalu of Indigenous People of Biafra and Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Sunday Igboho, Yoruba Nation activist, in secession and terrorist activities going on in different parts of the country.

The President, who revealed this in a nationwide broadcast, noted his government’s avowed determination to hold the bull by the horns in tackling secessionist agitators and their sponsors who threaten national security, stressing that Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable.

He said: “Nigeria is for all of us. Its unity is not negotiable. And its ultimate success can only be achieved if we all come together with a common goal of having peace and prosperity for our nation.

“We shall continue to work on dialogue-based solutions to address legitimate grievances. But we remain ready to take decisive actions against secessionist agitators and their sponsors who threaten our national security.

“The recent arrests of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemo, and the ongoing investigations being conducted have revealed certain high-profile financiers behind these individuals.

“We are vigorously pursuing these financiers, including one identified as a serving member of the National Assembly. This is a clear example of how people abandon their national leadership positions for their selfish gains.

“Instead of preaching unity, they are funding and misleading our youths to conduct criminal acts that sometimes lead to unfortunate and unnecessary loss of lives and property.

“As the so-called leaders run abroad to hide, our innocent youths are misled and left in the streets to fight for their senseless and destructive causes,”

Going  further, Buhari expressed his administration’s readiness to arrest and prosecute all persons “inciting violence through words or action,” stressing, “our resolve for a peaceful, united and one Nigeria remains resolute and unwavering. That said, our hope is not to fight for peace. We can always settle our grievances peacefully without spilling any blood.”

“I will, therefore, take this opportunity on this special day that symbolises the unity and oneness of our great nation to ask all Nigerians to embrace peace and dialogue in whatever their grievances are,” the President admonished./SHARE THIS
