‘Only NYSC, Police, Soldiers Uniting Nigeria’ – President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the National Youth Service
Corps, the Armed Forces and the Police are the only bodies uniting
Nigeria, saying this is why corps members in particular, should
re-dedicate themselves to uniting Nigeria.

He called on corps
members to use their education “to live up to the expectation of the
founding fathers” to keep Nigeria together.

Buhari spoke in his Daura country home, Katsina State, on Sunday when corps members paid him Sallah homage.

The President had received the corps members in company with the visiting President of Republic of Guinea, Prof. lfa Conde.

He specifically mentioned the NYSC, the police and soldiers as the “only” bodies keeping Nigeria united.

“From
Lagos, Port Harcourt and other parts of the country, you are at the end
of the country. This posting will make you know this place, Daura, and
you can disabuse the minds of those who are not educated about the other
side of the country.

“It is only the NYSC that is merging
(uniting) us together and of course, the police and soldiers,” a
statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr
Garba Shehu, quoted the President as telling the NYSC members.

Buhari
told his guests that at every opportunity he had meeting with a former
Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd.), who initiated the NYSC in
1973, he would always express his appreciation for introducing the
scheme.

He told the corps members to guard the scheme jealously and to see the unity of Nigeria a priority.

“The
President said they should always emphasise the common values of
peaceful co-existence, kindness and hospitality that cut across all
cultures and religions in Nigeria.

“President Buhari
said the entire nation depends on past and serving youth corps members
to bridge the country, since they have the first-hand experience of
living with different ethnic groups in various parts of the country,
studying their cultures and traditions, and enjoying hospitality, which
underpins every community in Nigeria,” the Presidency added.

Buhari donated two cows, 10 bags of rice to the visitors and an undisclosed amount of money.

Conde, who also made a remark at the event, identified Nigeria’s diversity as its greatest strength.

He noted, “First, you are Nigerians before you are from any other part
of the country. So, promote the unity of the country regardless of your
ethnic group.”

The corps members were led on the visit by the Chief Liaison Officer of NYSC in Daura, Aliyu Abdullahi.

He
told the President that it was a privilege to serve in his home town
and also to “meet with him and the Eid el-Kabir special guest, President
Conde.”

Abdullahi urged Buhari to step up the war against corruption and insecurity.
