President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech during a broadcast to Nigerians, where he declared that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable has elicited varied reactions. The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, in continuation of the ‘Lion King, Hyenas, Jackals, and lesser animals’ narrative applauded Buhari describing his speech as the ‘roar of a lion’.
Sani, in a Facebook post, stated that the President’s speech was aimed at re-establishing full control of a staggering clime heading to an engineered implosion during his absence.
He said, “The Lion has roared; the President spoke the mind of Nigerians who cherish our unity, peace and collective progress.
“He spoke as a nationalist and he spoke my mind a hundred per cent. He sent a clear message to terrorists, ethnic irredentists, secessionists, and champions of sectionalism that this union is an indissoluble matrimony in all circumstances.
“The President’s speech was a Lion’s roar meant to reaffirm and reinforce the unity of a nation showing signs of disintegration during his absence.
“The President speech was a Lion’s roar re-establishing full control of a staggering clime heading to an engineered implosion during his absence.
“The President speech was a Lion’s roar meant to wake up a slumbering nation dangerously forgetting the lessons of its history and the calling of its future.The president speech was a Lion’s roar meant to extinguish the Soviet/Yugoslavia Inferno stoking in our country.
“During the President’s absence, our hard-earned trophy of peace and plaque of unity were gathering dust and gradually being eaten by ants and bugs, the Lion roared to clear them.
“Our dreams and vision for a better country can be achieved without the need to subscribe to disorder or surrender to it. The roaring Lion may have disappointed “Biafranistas” and “Restructunistas” and “Evictionistas” but it’s pleasing to “Nationalistas.”
