3 Major Observations From Buhari's Independence Day Speech Regarding Biafran Agitations In Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, spoke in a nationwide broadcast to mark Nigeria's 61st independence from British rule.

The president who addressed various issues including the growing rate of insecurity in the country, made mention of some key facts regarding the biafran agitation in the country and those sponsoring them.

During his speech, president Muhammadu Buhari noted that the recent arrest of Nnamdi Kanu and the ongoing investigation being conducted have revealed that a serving member of the National Assembly is one of his sponsors.

President Muhammadu Buhari also issued a strong warning to those threatening the security of the nation in the name of Biafran agitations. He noted that his government will not hesitate to take decisive actions against them and bring them to book.

Lastly, President Muhammadu Buhari also reminded those agitating for the actualisation of Biafra that the unity of the nation is not negotiable and his government will only entertain legitimate grievances and find a way to bring a lasting solution to them.

The alleged marginalisation of the South-East has been the only driving force behind these separatists groups clamouring for secession. However, taking a look at what Buhari said, what advice do you have to give to these separatist groups?
