Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that the self-centredness that led to the civil war in Nigeria must not repeat itself just as he stated that Nigeria will remain one.

Speaking on Tuesday, he said, “Our main objective is the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We are human beings. We have our weaknesses, but I can assure you that the patriotism in us is hard earned. We have gone through all the troubles from 15th of January 1966 to date. You know what I mean by this, we have killed a million of ourselves in order to keep this country together.

“I don’t think there can be any practical experience more than that. We are Nigerians, God willing we remain Nigerians and Nigeria will remain one.”
