buhbPresident Muhammadu
Buhari has sounded a word of
warning to pro-Biafra agitators,
saying the corporate existence of
Nigeria as a single entity was not
a subject of debate and will not
be compromised.
President Buhari gave the
warning in Kaduna at the
investiture of Obi of Onitsha,
Nnaemeka Alfred Ugochukwu
Achebe, as the 7th Chancellor
of the Ahmadu Bello University,
ABU, Zaria yesterday.
The President, who was
represented by the Minister of
State for Education, Anthony
Onwuka, said the menace

of insurgency and actions
of some people agitating for
dismemberment of the country
will be surmounted.
According to him, “The
country is currently facing
challenges of insurgency and
other forms of insecurity that
has become a threat to Nigerians
to live in their country and be
educated in their country.
“The security situation in
the country entails that every
Nigerian must discharge his
responsibility in bringing about
peaceful coexistence.
“The menace of insurgency
and actions of some people
agitating for dismemberment of
this country will be surmounted.
“I therefore, sound a note
of serious warning that the
corporate existence of Nigeria
as a single entity is not a
subject of debate and will
not be compromised. This
administration will put in place
sustainable programmes which
will put our education system
back on sound track,” he said.
Earlier, the new Chancellor of
Ahmadu Bello University, ABU,
and Obi of Onitsha, Nnaemeka
Alfred Ugochukwu Achebe,
frowned at the state of persistent
fuel scarcity in the country.
“We spend unbelievable
amounts importing petrol
and subsidising its retail price
whilst our three refineries with
adequate capacity to meet
our national requirement are
literarily moribund, despite
huge sums spent on endless turn
around maintenances; smaller
and less endowed countries
successfully operate their own
refineries optimally and do not
suffer scarcity.
“Nigeria is probably the
largest importer of electric
generators in the world despite
our endowment with natural
sources of energy, such as
petroleum, coal, hydro and
solar energies, and the huge
sums spent by successive
governments on the power
sector. On the other hand,
a smaller country, Ghana,
takes gas from Nigeria and
generates most of its electricity
requirements.
“Our food import bill, spent
mostly on rice and wheat, is
about $22 billion annually, yet
our country is blessed with
vast arable land and a large
population of young jobless
people that can be usefully
deployed to agriculture,” he
