Why Buhari Did Not Speak On Biafra Agitation, Nnamdi Kanu At #UNGA – Presidency Finally Reveals

On September 23, 2017 19 Comments

The Presidency has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari did not speak on the activities of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) during his speech at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly because it is an internal issue.

Special Adviser to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said this while speaking in New York on the non-inclusion of IPOB in his principal’s speech,

Adesina said the issue is not a UN matter, adding that government was “firmly dealing with” it.

“The IPOB situation is an internal matter, which the government is dealing firmly with.

“It is not a UN matter. It is those who overrate themselves that think something like that must be brought up at a global platform like the UN.

“The president swore to uphold the Nigerian constitution, and the constitution recognises an indivisible country.

“It is a president who holds his own promises with flippancy that will allow the country to scatter under him.”

Buhari’s speech came under wide criticism for avoiding some of the topical issues in the country like agitation and the ongoing military activities in the South East.

    Sovereignty belongs to the people. The fraud you called constitution is not for the people maybe its for the national assembly. Have we ever come together to agree that we are one indivisible country? Have ever come together to agree that our name is Nigeria? Have we ever come together to agree that amalgamation is to the best interest of all citizens? Sovereignty belongs to the people. The constitution is as a result of the acclaimed sovereignty of the people. What u have is fraud never a democratical constitution.

    The proscription of an agitation group and subsequently tagging her a terrorist organisation should have been a global issue worthy of discussion within an international conference such united nations general assembly. Why do we keep lying and deceiving ourselves? Simply put, democracy does not seem to be working in the country for all I know.

    It’s only an inferiority complexed christain would keep propagating this kind of “post” have u heard of any Muslim talk about Christians wanting to CHRISTAINIZE Muslims? Why have u not thought of u christanising te Muslim? Pls stop all those religious Bigotry

    From what I see today in Nigeria I am very certain that Muslims would not need to use a violent Jihad to islamize Nigeria. CHRISTIANS themselves will be used by Muslims to islamize Nigeria. Just ask yourself how Muslim nations became Islamic nations? Is there any record of them doing evangelistic work? Did they tell people about how wonderful their prophet Mohammed is?

    How he raped women?

    How he beheaded nine hundred Jews in one day?

    How he had sex with a nine year old girl?

    How he was demon possessed for one year? How he could not perform a miracle?

    How he is a prophet without a prophecy?

    How he sold slaves for weapons of war?

    If MUSLIMS did not do evangelism how come there are 58 nations of the world today avowedly ISLAMIC countries? Including countries that used to be Christian countries.They used greedy pastors and stupid Christians. The ones they call the USEFUL IDIOTS.

    The Bible says, when men slept. These same CHRISTIANS were the ones that told us the elections had nothing to do with religion.

    *News flash! Buhari just registered Nigeria in the Islamic coalition against terrorism led by Saudi Arabia. The very same Saudi Arabia that is the chief sponsor of Islamic terrorism. What an irony!*

    *Newsflash! The first major conference Buhari would bring to Nigeria is the INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC CONFERENCE . A conference that “PASTOR” vice president cannot attend*

    While ‘clueless’ GEJ was convening INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC CONFERENCE at a time of plenty; Buhari is convening ISLAMIC CONFERENCE at a time of economic crisis. Now you see where his priority lies

    *Newsflash! Muslims are now using El Rufai in Kaduna as a test case to see how they can stop CHRISTIANS from preaching the gospel, not even for you to listen to a gospel message in your car. Who knows they might even ban gospel music*

    *Newsflash! Other northern states are copying Mr El Rufai’s law*

    *Newsflash! Fulani herdsmen are sacking Christian villages in the north*

    *Newsflash! Ambode sealed over twenty churches in Lagos for noise pollution. Not one Allahu Akbar morning yelling mosque was sealed. Ambode is supposedly a Christian remember? What do Muslims call them again? Something like useful Idiots*

    *Newsflash! The chapel at Aso Rock has been shut down and guess who had to explain to CHRISTIANS? Yeah our very own Pastor vice president. Again, another major very useful Idiot Whom they used to get the Christian votes*

    *Newsflash! The only minister to have died under Buhari happens to be a Christian Apologist. I mean a strong defender of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Somehow all the safety features in the car suddenly stopped working. Not one airbag deployed. Remember this is a Federal Minister riding in a very expensive car fitted with the best safety features. Did I also mention that the driver did not die? He was strong enough to pull out the body of the minister. Is okay?I hear many Christians say it is impossible to islamize Nigeria. The Question is, If they try it today will you pick up arms? What are you doing to make sure it does not happen?

    *Newsflash! A bill to have grazing land all over Nigeria sent by the govt had passed the second reading and there is every possibity that the bill will pass as most southern christian legislators have been compromised*

    Get ready for Fulani muslim communities to be established in our christian communities. Between christians and muslims who is likely to change his or her religion?

    The christians, because we are not strong in faith and it is a death sentence for a muslim to change to Christianity or any other religion. Many christians will be lured with money to change to Islam and by boyfriend girl friend and inter-marriage.

    Remember, the project is being sponsored by Saudi Arabia and Nigerian govt.

    Therefore, money to convert christians to muslim will not be a problem. Please don’t tell me you can never be lured with money. It has already started in Imo state.

    So we must fervently PRAY NOW…….SEND TO MANY CHRISTIANS ALL OVER THE NATION TO LIFT UP HOLY HANDS……IT IS URGENT. TAKE IT SERIOUS MY BRETHREN PLS.

    Heaven is a witness u received this message. Forwarded as received.
