Osinbajo warns Biafra agitators


Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has warned Biafra agitators and others calling for Nigeria’s separation to stop forthwith.

Osinbajo said this in Uyo on Saturday at a grand ceremony organised by the Akwa Ibom government to mark the 30th anniversary of the creation of the state.

He urged the people to resist attempts by any group trying to push them to destroy the existing peace in the country.

“Peace is the foundation of enduring prosperity and for peace to reign everywhere in Nigeria, all of us as Nigerians must make necessary sacrifices.

“We are in a situation where we must take seriously the admonition to love one another.

“Whatever complaints we may have must not be an excuse to subvert the social order.

“The Buhari government is prepared to engage and listen patiently to all sections of the country.

“Citizens everywhere should not sit idle when misguided elements choose to recklessly destroy the common bond of brotherhood and friendship that has put us together for decades,” he said.

He assured that the Federal Government would support Akwa Ibom to develop the Ibaka seaport.

“Provisions have been made in the current budget of Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) for the development of the Ibaka Deep Seaport,” Osinbajo disclosed.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel, the brother of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has revealed the group’s next line of action.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
