Buhari is planning to break up Nigeria, Fani-Kayode alleges

12 August 2016, 16:39

Abuja - Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari plans to break up Nigeria if crude oil is found in the north.

Recall that the president recently directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to begin the search for oil in the north-east.

Garba Deen Muhammad, the spokesperson of the corporation, in a statement on July 25, Monday, said it is stepping up measures to enable a successful operation in the current search for crude oil in the Chad basin and other parts of the inland substance basin.

According to him, this is in line with Buhari’s order “for deeper inquest into the prospectivity of some hitherto neglected finds in some areas in the North Eastern part of Nigeria”.

However, Fani Kayode reacting to Buhari’s directive via his twitter handle on Thursday, August 11, said if the president finds oil, he and the north will be the first to call for a breakup of the country.

The former minister added that if Buhari fails to find oil in the north, the northerners will continue to be the greatest obstacle to the restructuring of Nigeria.

He also said without southern oil the north is nothing.
