President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said there is no country in Nigeria and that any Nigerians who feel they belong to another country can leave.
Buhari spoke when he received the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirants and members of the party from the three senatorial zones of Kwara State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President also stated that he and others who do not have another country would stay back and salvage it together.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Buhari urged Nigerians to remain loyal to the country in all their dealings.
Buhari said, “You don’t have to be in uniform to be loyal.
“What I said long ago in 1984 is still valid today. We have no other country but Nigeria.
“Others who feel they have another country may choose to go. We will stay here and salvage it together.”
Buhari’s remark is coming at a time Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), threatened to bring hell on Nigeria.
Kanu, who had not been seen since September 2017, resurfaced last week in Jerusalem.
