REPUBLIC OF BENIN IS NOT ASPIRING TO BE PART OF NIGERIA

The attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been drawn to misleading reports in the media that the Republic of Benin is aspiring to be the 37 State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama in the presence of his counterpart from the Republic of Benin granted a Press Interview after a very fruitful meeting between Ministerial delegations from both countries and stated therein [/b]“... the President of Benin Republic said he would like the relations between the two countries to be so close as if Benin was the 37th State of Nigeria".[b]

The Federal Republic of Nigeria has no territorial ambition and has never aspired to make Benin or any country as part of Nigeria.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs was therefore quoted out of context and the general public should kindly disregard the wrong information.

I said it!
We already know. How can Benin give up their independence to become a dependent state?
Somethings don’t just make sense.
This is a low one for daily trust.

Nigeria needs to expand her territories though. imagine if Nigeria also encompassed Benin, Cameroon, and some parts of Niger and Chad. we'll have access to some new kinds of raw materials like Uranium from Niger which can be used to generate sustainable electricity. and the lake Chad can be made into a dam.

Because Niger is Buhari's ancestral home. His granddad hailed from Niger. Now we know why buhari is treating Nigeria this way. Should anything happen in Nigeria, he would relocate to his home in Niger by merely crossing the border. All of them know what they're doing . You can imagine them trying to construct a railway to Niger when lots of regions in Nigeria have no such infrastructure They're also channeling oil pipelines to Niger. They want to build a refinery along Nigeria and Nigerien border. Afterall, maina was traced to Niger where he was apprehended. The onus is on our leaders down south to wake up and strategise. These people would flee to their country should any bad thing happen here, God forbid. Those who have been to Niger Republic lately narrated how the fulani dominated country was witnessing massive developments in buildings and infrastructure by northern Nigerians

Imagine the comments above: instead of putting the blame on the junk journalism that reported wrong information, they rather lambasted the government who called out the lies since the government, to them, have to bear the burden of the failure of all institutions, leadership and/or even themselves (who's sitting down and expecting mannas to fall from heaven).
That's why even in the face of good news, they still complain.

Benin republic should just merge and handover their economy to Lagos state, merging with Nigeria the country will be a disaster.

This onyema of a minister talks too derogatory why he address a whole country like Benin Republic as a 37th Nigerian state, this man is unfit to be a minister he lacks diplomatic approach, another failure in Apc government.

Our political leaders has massive investment in some of these African countries,for example Alhaji modouf sheriif controls 70% percent of the critical sector in Niger republic.
Nigeria gives them Free electricity , because they are not paying for it.
