Garba Shehu insists President Buhari will not be bullied by secessionist (video)
There is news about Garba Shehu the Official Spokesperson to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Shehu who is the Senior Special Adviser on Media & Publicity to the President is in the news based on his comments about regions that no longer want to be part of Nigeria.
According to Shehu, the President will not be bullied on the issues of secession as he called them the problem of the country.
He said, “One thing with this president is, you can’t intimidate Buhari, you can’t bully him,” he said. “A lot of these people who are calling for secession, they are the problem of this country. And I am happy that reasonable opinions, voices are now rising.
“Is it not only yesterday we read about Afenifere — the most credible faction of Afenifere — saying ‘we’re not for secession’? Ohanaeze Ndigbo said this over and over again.
“So, this thing about secession is they had used it in the past. You cry secession and breakup Nigeria and then you intimidate the sitting leader and then he opens the vault and he brings money to settle people.
“President Buhari will pay no one. He is not going to pay, and now it is clear that having ignored all of that, reasonable opinions are coming from those states and from those regions.
“The governors in the southwest — we have all heard them — they have denounced all of these things.
“So, it’s a sham. Nigerians want to be one. They want to continue. Yes, there are problems and we are hoping that as people united and loving of one another, we will come together and solve our problems.”
