BreakingNews 14/9/16 - Buhari tells agitators to forget Biafra and calls on all to `Trump Nigeria`

[ Masterweb Reports ] - President Muhammadu Buhari wants Nigeria ‘Trumped’, he interpolated Donald Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again” to Nigeria while receiving over 100 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in his Daura Local Government Area (LGA) at his home in Daura, Katsina State. Buhari called on Nigerian youths to “make Nigeria great again” through pursuit of knowledge, patriotism and commitment to values that promote national unity. He advised those clamouring for Biafra to forget it. *Click for Photo of Buhari With Corps (NYSC) Members.
The president commended corps members from South-East and South-South serving in Daura, telling them:  “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 walked for most of the 30 months that we fought the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, in which at least two 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 a critical factor then, but because of one Nigeria. So, if leaderships at various levels failed, it was not the fault of the rest of Nigerians who have no quarrel with one another.
“So, please tell your colleagues that we must be together to build this country. It is big enough for us and potentially big enough in terms of resources. Those who work hard will earn a respectable living. I have seen this country, I fought for this country and I will continue to work for the unity of this country.”
Buhari extolled former Head of State, retired General Yakubu Gowon for setting up NYSC in 1973. He said the scheme has promoted national unity and cohesion by exposing young people to the beauty of cultural diversity in the country.
Egbewumi Adebolu, the Corps Liaison Officer in Daura, in his remarks thanked Buhari for receiving them and his personal gift of cows, bags of rice and cash
to corps members in the area for the Sallah feast. He said the youths support the president’s program in creating more jobs for Nigerians. *Click for Photo of Buhari With Corps (NYSC) Members.
Editor’s Note: Do we make Nigeria great again? Was Nigeria ever great? Your guess is as good as mine – Nigeria really needs to change from oil-based economy to tax-based economy where people’s productivity funds government in the provision of infrastructure and enabling environment for coexistence, commerce and industry. This includes resource control where people control what is in their land and pay appropriate local, state (or region) and federal taxes.  This is what is called the People’s Government (Government By The People For The People) . We should all be prepared to Trump Nigeria – Trumping Nigeria can also mean electing people that are not part of the establishment (system) and are honest and dedicated to the service of their communities and the country.
