President Buhari lands in Ebonyi, Shuns Guard of Honour

President Buhari lands in Ebonyi, Shuns Guard of Honour”

"Buhari is a sectional leader, because he and his Northern leaders takes Nigerian as their personal property".

The President who arrived in Ebonyi on Tuesday was received by the governors of Enugu, Ebonyi and Abia states.

Many in the southeast region view the president as anti-Igbo, a sentiment built on Buhari's crackdown aimed at secessionist activists led by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

He will also be conferred with two traditional chieftaincy titles by traditional rulers in the state before rounding off the event with a dinner later in the night.

Local media reports that there was heightened security presence during Buhari's engagements including the hovering of a surveillance helicopter over capital of Ebonyi state, Abakaliki.

Addressing Ebonyi State Leaders of Thought and Traditional Rulers at a meeting in Government House, Abakiliki, Ebonyi, the President commended Ebonyi people for the warm reception accorded him during the state visit.

According to Lamorde, any individual or group of persons that fomented trouble before, during and after the visit would be dealt with, as people were advised to conduct themselves well. They are pushing for a seperate Republic of Biafra, an earlier struggle that 50 years ago led to the loss of over a million lives.

He said that his visit to the state was clear demonstration of his administration's strong belief in the unity of Nigeria.
