Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina has advised those who are “beating the drums of separation” to keep their peace as the President is ready to sacrifice himself for the unity of the country.
He emphasised that the government of President Buhari is resolute to preserve the unity, cohesion and togetherness of Nigeria.
Femi Adesina, who addressed a solidarity rally at the precincts of the Presidential Villa, for the Federal Government, organised in Abuja, by the Centre for Civil Society and Justice said: “the President has sworn to keep the unity of the country and whatever it takes, he will keep to that pledge.”
He stressed that President Buhari will also continue to uphold the contents of the constitution which he swore to uphold, adding that principal among the contents of the constitution is the recognition of Nigeria as one indissoluble entity.
The Presidential spokesman is happy that Nigeria has finally exited from economic recession, which he said, is a clear testimony that President Buhari’s administration is working for the progress and prosperity of all Nigerians.
He said that the exit of Nigeria from such dangerous economic indicator shows that Nigeria now has a government that is working for them.
“It shows that we have a government that is interested in our welfare. We have a government that is interested in our well-being.
“Recession came due to some mistakes of the past and in just about a year, the government battled it and today we are officially out of recession and we give all glory to God.”
Adesina assured the rally that he would relay their message of support and solidarity on the unity of Nigeria to the President.
Earlier, the convener of the rally, Comrade Goodluck Obi said the group wholeheartedly supports President Buhari’s uncommon resolve to fix a nation ‘plundered and pillaged by irresponsible leadership in the past at various levels of government.”
Goodluck called on the National Assembly and the Judiciary to support the executive arm of government in the war against corruption, insurgency and economic recovery programmes.
“We want to sound a note of warning to both organs of government, that we the Nigerian people would no longer allow our collective destiny to be toyed with like a game.
“We are more than ever ready to mobilise the people to do the needful within the ambit of the law. Enough is Enough.”
