"The Federal Government will give war to the South East since it is what they want" - Serving Northern Senator

A Senator representing Bauchi North Senatorial District and the Chairman Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa has said the Nigerian Government is ready to give war to the people he described as "insurgents" in the South East according to Sahara Reporters.

He said the Igbos tried to seceed from Nigeria and it caused the civil war, and that if the Igbos want to pass through the same route to get Biafra, the FG would go into war with the rebels.

He said on Channels TV

“There are people who feel democracy is not good enough for them and they want to devise their own means of belonging to this entity called Nigeria and if they don’t have their wish, they’ll let Nigeria go to pieces,”

“So is that anything that the constitution allows or encourages? So they’re absolutely outside the realm of the constitution.

“They’re just rebels, arsonists and criminals in short. So, what are we going to consider to even give them a chance to come and say their wish and let Nigeria tremble and bow before them and say ‘okay, we’ve granted you your wish.’

“Those insurgency in the Southeast, they’re all claiming that they want their own country called Biafra right? If that is the case, is it by killing people that they’ll get their country?

“They’ve tried it before; do they want us to go back to the same route? I don’t think so. But if they do, if that’s what they choose, has Nigeria got any choice?

“Will we just allow them, bow and say, ‘we’ll grant you your own wish?’ No. Nigerian government has to stand out, fight them and give them what they want.”

Senator Adamu also said an Igbo man is likely not to become president because Politics in a democracy, is a game of numbers.

“I don’t even believe in zoning. I believe the right candidates should be fielded by all the parties and then let Nigerians choose from the best among them.

“And those who have the number, who believe the same candidates will obviously win. Unless you don’t want that which is against the norms of democracy, then, I don’t know, you can devise your own means.

Senator Adamu concluded by saying that the zoning system of Presidency in Nigeria would not work because it is not the best way to elect a President.
