Nigeria Cannot And Will Not Be Divided - Obaseki by EcoBrick: 4:39pm On Dec 16, 2021

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has hailed the selfless sacrifices made by officers and men of the Armed Forces to keep Nigeria one and said the country would not be divided.

Obaseki stated this on Thursday in Benin at the launching of the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Emblem.

According to him, most Nigerians have benefited from the selfless sacrifices of members of the armed forces “from the first world War through our civil war till this day, where we are still losing patriots”.

He said that it was imperative to remember and appreciate the fallen heroes and the enormous courage of serving gallant soldiers.

“As a state and a country, we remain very optimistic that despite the threats of insecurity and banditry which we face as a country and a state, that we will overcome.

“We are hopeful that we will continue to secure our state and our country, because we have courageous people like you, who are ready to serve and sacrifice for the country.

“That is why we take event like this very seriously and to encourage the younger ones what sacrifices to the country means and also to encourage those of you who are in service that your efforts will not be in vain.

“This occasion also reminds us of the need to jealousy guard the unity of our country.

“We should not encourage the kind of rhetoric that we have been parading in this country today about the unity of our great country. Nigeria has come to stay, and Nigeria cannot and will not be divided.

“It has to be so, because people have paid a supreme sacrifice to keep this country together, and it will not be right or fair to do anything to make it look as if those people who fought for this country did not know what they were doing.”


The governor launched the Emblem with N10 million, pledged to replace the legion’s Hilux van and include the legion as part of the state’s security architecture.

“We need your services, we need people like you to help us improve the work being done by our local vigilantes across the various ward and local governments,’’ Obaseki said.

In his comments, the Speaker, Edo House of Assembly, Mr Marcus Onobun pledged 50 per cent of his salary to the legion while the state Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Tony Aziegbemi, donated N1 million.

In his remarks, the state Chairman of the Nigerian Legion, Mr Ignatius Enabulele, pledged their support to tackle insecurity in the state.

Obaseki, you are a very big fool for saying this. A very big idiot. angry Nigeria has expired, and you are part of the problem. This contraption needs to end so that the human potentials of the South can be unleashed without Fulani and their backward interruptions. Biafra or death.

Nigeria cannot continue like this forever. Why?
1. You said Igbo can't rule Nigeria.
2. Tribalism and nepotism of buhari is yardstick to divide the country.
3. The massacre of christians in the north by Boko Haram(who are indirectly sponsor by the northern clerics and leaders is a time bomb ready to explode.
4. Buhari anti-youth campaign. I.e the youth are lazy!
5. Bad economic policies and high cost of living in this administration is concern to all.


The north is Nigeria problem

Governor Obaseki is speaking the language THE FULANI POLITICAL LEADERS UNDERSTANDS.

He is yet to sign the anti open grazing laws that he reached with other southern governors.

There are 6 geopolitical zones in the country. Only 1 of them wants out of the Union unequivocally, so it’s very difficult for the country to be divided when 5 out of the 6 zones want to remain and fight for relevance rather than part ways

The country has been on a free fall yet most people think it’s worth fighting for

Why must we remain one country just for the benefit of one region?

Buhari himself says that everybody is free to seek his own self determination

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U0Oh1mVFR0

So why must be yoked with a region that does not like itself, let alone the south?

If you want to let some unpatriotic folks not to have a good day, just remind them of their futile wait for Nigeria to be balkanized.
It's visible to the blind and audible to the deaf that the unity of Nigeria is cast in titanium. You are wasting your time trying to break it.

All the enemies of Nigeria will lose las las. They always lose. God bless Nigeria forever.

We have heard you guys politicians. It obviously favours you when it is larger. You all should keep up the bad governance standard. And see how the country become a refugee camp. You will even be pleading for division so you can have at least a small portion to keep milking from. You won't see.
