President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that the country will not break up under his leadership.
This comes as many groups in the country clamour for secession, notably the Igbos.
However, President Buhari during his speech to mark the nation’s 57th Independence anniversary, adding that those who want war do not know the consequences of such since they were not born when the country witnessed the Civil War.
“We have signed multilateral agreements on criminal matters with friendly countries. There are signs of increasing cooperation from the judiciary,” Buhari said.
“Recently, the Chief Justice of the Federation directed heads of all our courts of first instance and Appeal to accelerate hearings of corruption cases and dismiss any judicial officers found to have been compromised.”
Speaking further, the President noted that “Justice Salami has just been appointed to chair the Judiciary’s anti-graft committee. Government expects a lot from this committee.
“I commend the National Assembly for refocusing on its oversight committees.”
