Buhari directs service chiefs to ensure Nigeria's unity

The President Muhammadu Buhari has directed all the Service Chief to enhance their security operations in tackling insecurity across the country

The Ebonyi State chapter of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said President Muhammadu Buhari's order to the service chiefs was divisive. "We updated him on all security issues around the country, within the country and outside the country, where our troops are".

"Terrorists and criminals must be fought and destroyed relentlessly so that the majority of us can live in peace and safety" the President said in his broadcast.

In the closed-door meeting the chief of Air Staff Sadique Abubakar, general inspector of Police Ibrahim Idris, the responsible of State Security Department Lawal Daura and a representative of the chief of Naval Staff have been also present.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari commanded today the chiefs of national security bodies to watch and act immediately in the protection of national unity.

"On Boko Haram issue, you all know it is an asymmetric warfare".

Olonishakin said despite the recent attacks carried out by Boko Haram, it would be wrong to believe that members of the sect have stepped up their game.

"The President should address Boko Haram in the North-East, the unfortunate quit notice by the Arewa youths".

"The president had health challenges, unfortunately, because we do not have the facilities to treat him, he had to be flown overseas".

US Warns Citizens About Traveling to Cancun
The department does say that there is no indication that any Americans have been targeted simply for being American. For the state of Quintana Roo , the U.S. warning does not issue travel restrictions, only a warning of the risk.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Tuesday said President Buhari would keep Nigeria one despite various agitations in parts of the country.

Prior to that, he had entrusted the reins of government to the Vice President, Prof.

"Last week, youths from the South-South region were here to show solidarity with him".

He said, "Mr. President, it is noteworthy to inform you that while you were away, a lot took place".

The lawyers spoke on the sidelines of the conference opened by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) on August 21.

In response to the success of IPOB's sit-at-home call on 30th May 2017, a coalition of Northern Youths had, in their 6th June "Kaduna Declaration", issued a 90-day ultimatum for Igbo people resident in the North to relocate to their ethnic homeland.

"It is no longer news that we are leaving recession behind us".

Now that the President is back, we wish to recall his attention to urgent security situations facing the nation.
