Nigeria Will Never Experience A Civil War Again — Buhari

According to him the federal government would remember the victims of the conflict and honour those on both sides who lost their lives.

He maintain that, their tragedy shall be neither forgotten nor repeated.

Buhari in a statement through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that the war served as a “potent warning on the dangers of aggressive regionalism, ethnic baiting and political corruption. In it, we must forge common memory that can serve as a bridge to a future free from the ravages of sectarianism.

The president said;

We remember the past to draw its lessons; on how we move forward together and live in peace. Unfortunately, there are some who fail to recognise them and instead repeat its mistakes, preaching inflammatory rhetoric meant only to divide. We call on all leaders and parties to moderate their language.

There were no victors in this war. Yet in rejecting division and embracing unity, we ensure those lives lost were not in vain.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
