The Nigerian presidency has warned those
agitating for a
breakaway Biafra republic to have a
rethink, saying the federal
government would not fold its hands and
allow anyone plunge
the country into crisis.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who gave the
warning on
Saturday, in Jos, said government would not
watch while
some individuals and groups create
unnecessary tension in the
country in the guise of seeking to break
away from Nigeria.
“We need to build the civic capacity to
defeat the false and
dangerous premises and assumption of
violence extremism.
Never again should we allow mindless
violence inspired by
false and evil precepts to threaten our
national security,” Mr.
Osinbajo said.
“Let me again call on persons or group in

violating the law of
the land or threatening law and order.”
He urged the protesters to join hands with

“Let me reiterate that Boko Haram terrorism
as well as their
ideology will soon be defeated and
consigned to history,” Mr.
Osinbajo said.
He admitted there were educational
setbacks in the country,
but said the APC-led administration would
tackle the
challenges in the sector as a means of
ensuring better future
for Nigeria’s younger generation.
“While accepting that our educational
system is in a
dangerously parlous state, the solutions are
obvious even if not
easy,” the Vice-President said.
“We have to focus on early child education,
retrain teachers,
ensure that our curricular will prepare our
children for the 21st
