Pro-Buhari & Anti-Buhari Protesters Clash In New York Before Buhari's Speech by KillIgbohoN0W: 8:08pm On Sep 20
By Leon Usigbe-New York
Two Nigerian groups on Monday confronted each other in New York, the United States, over the state of things in the country.

The groups converged on Nigerian House on 42nd Street, 2nd Avenue, airing opposing views about the conditions in Nigeria and its unity.

The protests came as President Muhammadu Buhari began his scheduled activities related to the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), at a venue that is a stone’s throw from the Nigerian Mission.

The first group of Nigerians in Diaspora said they were there to show their support for their fatherland as world leaders assembled for the annual event.



Led by Emmanuel Duara, the group, by the name “One Nigeria Group,” expressed their support for President Muhammadu Buhari and the indissolubility of the country.



Speaking to reporters amid chants of “one Nigeria,” he said: “We are the biggest country in Africa and the biggest black country in the whole world. Whatever is going on among tribes in Nigeria, let us sit down and settle it.”

He spoke of the successes of the various programmes undertaken by the Buhari administration since 2015.

The group members waved the country’s flag, wore T-shirts and displayed banners announcing progress made, their commitment to one Nigeria and a yearning for peace and progress.


They were however opposed by anti-Buhari protesters who called for a referendum to determine the fate of the country.

Also speaking to reporters, one of the leaders, Foluso Aruleba, highlighted the various problems confronting Nigeria as a nation, asserting that there can be no peace without justice.



She regretted that the Buhari’s administration had continued to borrow money among declining value of the naira.

Aruleba, who said she was speaking for all the indigenous people of Nigeria, said: “During Jonathan’s administration, Buhari invited Fulanis from West Africa. Now, the thing has backfired and they are killing more people in the North.”

She demanded for referendum, saying that United Nations should go back to the drawing board, saying that the 17 sustainable development goals are global goals and Nigeria cannot be isolated.

She alleged that plans were on to invade Yorubaland, which she stated would not be acceptable.

When will you guys learn! When? Is it when you are subdued beyond recovery or when your best brain are being drain out or is it when you realize that you live you die you fight you still die

I am tired for this kind of foolishness exhibited by the Southerners, so much for a people who claim to be educated.

Foolish people... You have escaped this doom already, why are you still fight yourselves? Abi thunder dey on holiday ni?
You see the other stupid boy fighting and supporting Buhari, just pray that you never get deported o, because if I use the remaining curse wey dey my mouth this night on you, you fit no wake up for new York tomorrow o.

Even your father wey be vulture barbecue seller no longer comment on anything that has to do with Buhari, because he is wise now and the zombie injection given to him is finally becoming impotent, thanks to reality. So bia, Emmanuel, be careful, no lemme curse you.
May you not be deported because you support something that is causing serious pain and agony to Nigerians at home. May God be with you
