Nigeria’s former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, General Theophilus Danjuma and Senator Ike Nwachukwu, wednesday, at Nnamdi Azikiwe University preached unity among all the geo-political zones in the country.

Abubakar who was special guest at the launching of Emeka Anyaoku’s Institute of International Studies and Diplomacy, at the university in Awka, Anambra State, urged Nigerian youths to build on the legacies of Nigerian founding fathers to ensure the country does not break up.

He said the nation’s diversity must be positively explored by all for its continued existence.
He underscored the importance of peace and unity for any society that desires meaningful growth and development, saying the various agitations across the country would further tear the nation apart.

“We must allow peace to reign without which development would be impossible. Altogether, there is strength in diversity. All hands must be on deck to make our great Nigeria greater.” he said.

Also speaking, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gen. Ike Nwachukwu, who chaired the occasion, said nothing was wrong with restructuring, but it must be implemented without violence.

He noted that Nigeria, which he described as wonderful, had witnessed only a civil war, insisting that the youths cannot afford to allow it to disintegrate.

Nwachukwu described Anyaoku as a man with great wisdom whose immense advice he had benefited from.
Earlier in his welcome address, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, said the diplomatic service of Anyaoku informed the choice of his naming of the institution after him.

Responding, the celebrant, Chief Anyaoku, expressed happiness over the encomiums showered on him by the dignitaries while thanking the university for the honor conferred on him in his lifetime.

He said he devoted over 50 years of his lifetime to international service, promoting cordial relationship between nations, resolving political crisis as well as tackling global challenges including climate change and terrorism.

Anyaoku however noted that his major challenge had been his inability to document his personal papers like his predecessors in the Commonwealth, which he said the institute had provided the platform for him to accomplish.

“One major challenge I have is my inability to deposit my personal papers which arose during my service as third Secretary General of the Commonwealth.

“I am glad that Nnamdi Azikiwe University has provided the opportunity to help deposit my personal papers and books I have written.” he said.

    Every attempt to,preach peace and unity in any part of Igbo land, should be welcomed, given the tense situation that has been created on the issue of Biafra. Dialogue with the people will always be the best option, instead of the drums of war. The people need to be assured not only in words but also in deed that they are an integral part of the country. If one may ask in all these, where is that cowardly bully of a despot? He is supposed to be the president of the entire country, yet he has not thought it fit to make any attempt to visit the Southeast. Imagine what difference it would have made if much earlier he had paid visits like Osinbajo did, to assure and assuage the people. Of course he is too cowardly to face the people he hates with such a passion. Shame on the bully.

      When people are weak and feel inferior, the only way they know how to be relevant is suppress and oppress others, and bullying, intimidation and threats is the only tools they have, and when they have the instrument of power as Mumuhead Buhari currently do, they kill to instill fear and subjugations, it makes them feel important, but they are wholly empty and completely hallow. Adolf Hitler was not educated, so Jews who were very educated and wealthy was his envy and the target of his madness, that is why Mumuhead Buhari does not like the Igbos because they reminds him of his own shortcomings and personal failures. Sorry Mr. Terrorist, Allah Makes the Wise and the Unwise, The rich and the Poor, the educated and not so educated, we are not responsible for your peoples backwardness, learn from Igbos and not envy or hate them, you may be blessed as Allah bless them.
