Buhari: Only NYSC, Police, Soldiers Uniting Nigeria by Pamatips: 6:35am On Aug 12
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the National Youth Service Corps, the Armed Forces and the Police are the only bodies uniting Nigeria, saying this is why corps members in particular, should re-dedicate themselves to uniting Nigeria.

He called on corps members to use their education “to live up to the expectation of the founding fathers” to keep Nigeria together.



Buhari spoke in his Daura country home, Katsina State, on Sunday when corps members paid him Sallah homage.

The President had received the corps members in company with the visiting President of Republic of Guinea, Prof. lfa Conde.

He specifically mentioned the NYSC, the police and soldiers as the “only” bodies keeping Nigeria united.

“From Lagos, Port Harcourt and other parts of the country, you are at the end of the country. This posting will make you know this place, Daura, and you can disabuse the minds of those who are not educated about the other side of the country.

“It is only the NYSC that is merging (uniting) us together and of course, the police and soldiers,” a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, quoted the President as telling the NYSC members.

Buhari told his guests that at every opportunity he had meeting with a former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd.), who initiated the NYSC in 1973, he would always express his appreciation for introducing the scheme.

He told the corps members to guard the scheme jealously and to see the unity of Nigeria a priority.

“The President said they should always emphasise the common values of peaceful co-existence, kindness and hospitality that cut across all cultures and religions in Nigeria.



“President Buhari said the entire nation depends on past and serving youth corps members to bridge the country, since they have the first-hand experience of living with different ethnic groups in various parts of the country, studying their cultures and traditions, and enjoying hospitality, which underpins every community in Nigeria,” the Presidency added.

Buhari donated two cows, 10 bags of rice to the visitors and an undisclosed amount of money.

Conde, who also made a remark at the event, identified Nigeria’s diversity as its greatest strength.

He noted, “First, you are Nigerians before you are from any other part of the country. So, promote the unity of the country regardless of your ethnic group.”

The corps members were led on the visit by the Chief Liaison Officer of NYSC in Daura, Aliyu Abdullahi.

He told the President that it was a privilege to serve in his home town and also to “meet with him and the Eid el-Kabir special guest, President Conde.”

Abdullahi urged Buhari to step up the war against corruption and insecurity.

Are you sure our beloved President reads the news coming from his dear country cos if he does he will know how the police and soldiers intimidate the civilians and then tell if that brings unity and thank God he knows he himself is far from uniting Nigeria

Police and soldiers uniting Nigeria by force, because if you say anyhow they shoot you anyhow undecided

What we need is the willingness to stay together and if it doesn't work out, we split up!

The only reason this guys always talk about unity in Nigeria is because it has never existed and will never been. Do you hear Ghana, UK, US and other countries that are working talk about unity? They don't because they have something in common. In Nigeria it is non exist ant. We are just deceiving ourselves because of free oil money.

Buhari does not know how to address a nation his publicity is bad in this era of insecurity and tension see what a President is spewing out.
Instead of him to call on all bodies irrespective of your religion, tribe, political affiliation or whataview building Nigeria is a task for everyone.
May we never have a man like him in the affairs of our nation as a leader again

The only thing that unite Nigerians is football, I mean football only. How many persons they go for youth service? Nigerians don't give a fvck about police or military. Only football match can make an Igbo man insult a coach for not using Musa cheesy grin.
