President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigerians are better and stronger together, warning those seeking to divide the country.

The President has stated that despite occasional tensions in the nation’s history characterized by diversity of ethnicity, culture, language and religion, notwithstanding, Nigerians are better off and stronger together.

Speaking as the chairman of the 12th colloquium to celebrate the 69th birthday of All Progressives Congress National leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the president said as a military man he fought for the unity of Nigeria.

Buhari spoke virtually from Aso Rock but the colloquium held in Kano.

Self-acclaimed youth leader, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, a former militant in the Niger Delta region, Asari Dokubo, are among those who have recently called for secession, citing injustice in Nigeria.
