Forget Biafra – President Buhari tells Igbo corps members in Daura


Speaking specifically to corps members from the South Eastern states, the President said: "Tell your colleagues who want Biafra to forget about it.''"As a military commander, I walked from Degem, a border town between the north and the east, to the border between Cameroon and Nigeria.
I have seen this country, I fought for this country and I will continue to work for the unity of this country,''



“I walked on my foot for most of the 30 months that we fought the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, in which at least 2 million Nigerians were killed.

“We were made by our leaders to go and fight Biafra not because of money or oil, because oil was not critical factor then, but because of one Nigeria.

The President said.
In his remarks, Mr Egbewumi Adebolu, the Corps Liaison Officer in Daura, thanked the President for the honour of receiving them and making their stay in Daura memorable.
Adebolu thanked the President for his personal gifts of cows, bags of rice and cash to corps members in the community for Salah celebration.
