'The unity of Nigria is non-negotiable' - President Buhari

President Buhari today said the unity of Nigeria as a country is non-negotiable and would be protected by his government. Speaking when Vice President Yemi Osinbajo led other government functionaries to pay him a visit to mark Eid Mubarak, President Buhari said those who were around between 1967 and 1970 when former head of state, General Yakubu Gowon was preaching the one-Nigeria message, would understand that the unity of the country is not negotiable.

He said this while reacting to calls by Niger Delta militants and pro-biafra members for the country to break up. President Buhari called on Niger Delta militants destroying oil and gas installations to embrace peace and give his government a chance.
