Osinbajo Speaks - Biafra at 50: Citizens have right to discuss their continued existence in Nigeria

It is reported that the Nigeria current Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday declared that citizens reserve the right to discuss their continued existence in Nigeria.
It is earlier reported that the Nigeria Acting President Osinbajo made the remark at an event organised to mark the 50th anniversary of Biafra in Abuja.
The acting President maintained that Nigerians were greater together than apart.
Appealing to citizens to work together to build the nation, Osinbajo advised that Nigerians should not allow their frustrations drive them to see their compatriots as enemies.
According to Osinbajo, the time and the resources spent on the
war could have moved the country further in terms of development.
He said,“Some say secession is the answer to charges of marginalisation. Some say Nigeria is colonial contraption, and that we should be independent ethnic nationalities. This is what forms the call for Biafra which is sometimes vitriolic.
“I have to differ, We are greater together than apart‎. Instead of trying to flee every time we face frustrations, it is best for us to come together to build the nation.
“We should not use the media, and the social media as a means to propagate hate. We cannot benefit from that. Our frustrations must not drive us to see other people as enemies.

 “And, I believe Nigerians should exercise the right to discuss their existence here.”
