In an essay titled “Nigeria’s Unity And All The Iberiberism,” he mentioned this on Friday. “The saber-rattling over Nigeria’s unity and the danger of fragmentation has reached Iberiberism,” Adesina stated (an Igbo word which could mean stupidity). Some people seem to have no business other than making apocalyptic prophecies about a crumbled, collapsed Nigeria, as if they fast and pray for it.
“From 1999 to 2007, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was President of Nigeria. “They projected that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who served as President from 1999 to 2007, would be the final President of a united Nigeria. It was not to be. They thought Umaru Yar’Adua was too unwell to keep Nigeria together when he arrived. The country was still standing. “They claimed he was too weak under Goodluck Jonathan, and certain parts of the country would soon say, ‘to your tents, oh Israel.’ Nigeria has made it. They haven’t changed their songs in six years under Muhammadu Buhari. Nigeria was on its path to becoming Somalia. Fulanization would be the death knell for the country. Nigeria, on the other hand, exists. It trudges on, day after day, month after month, and will undoubtedly survive.”
“Certain fathers of the land would not fold their hands and see Nigeria fall down,” Adesina added, despite some individuals dwelling on negativity. “We now have one of them as President, which is a blessing. As a young army officer, Muhammadu Buhari spent 30 months waging the war of unity on the frontlines. And he’s made it clear: we’re not going to stand by and let Nigeria fall apart. Never. We like to communicate with insurgents in their own language. What about Olusegun Obasanjo, a hero of the civil war? Despite the fact that his acts and inactions, words and bile have all contributed to the current upheavals, he claims it is folly to seek Nigeria’s fragmentation today. Good. But let us back up our words with deeds. Allow Baba to think and speak freely,” the presidential spokesman added. “Nigeria will live to fight another day. The political system will survive. And the constituent components shall coexist in peace and brotherhood. He continued, “Any other option is Iberiberism.” Between May 1999 to May 2007, Obasanjo served as Nigeria’s democratically elected president after serving as a military leader from February 1976 to September 1979.
