King Tsaro-Igbara says Buratai has a will to unite Nigeria

The paramount ruler of Nortem Bori Communities in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers state, His Royal Highness, Sir Lenu Tsaro Igbara (Gbene-Tee Koo IX), says the ex-Chief of Army Staff and former Nigerian Envoy to the Republic of Benin, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai (rtd), has displayed his chunk will for the unity of Nigeria.

King Tsaro-Igbara stated this on Tuesday in Abuja on the occasion of the public presentation of the Children Book and Animated Narration of “The Legend of Buratai” written by Dr Abubakar Sani in honour of the former army chief.

The monarch, who was the Royal Father of the Day at the occasion, tasked the Federal Government to place education as a core priority, suggesting the inculcation of skill acquisition after primary and secondary education just as it is in the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.

He said, “an idle mind is a devil’s workshop. If we can bridge this gap, I can see that in the next ten years when we shall have a new generation of youths in Nigeria, the idea of violence would have been defeated.”

To surmount the current security challenges facing the country, the royal father urged the government to take deliberate steps to increase the manpower of the armed forces.

“We have to put in place infrastructures that would forestall further occurrences of unknown gunmen attacks on innocent Nigerian citizens.”

He expressed hope of a better Nigeria as the country prepares for the 2023 general elections, calling on the diversification of the Nigerian economy.

“In the 60s, agriculture was the mainstay of our economy. God has blessed us with arable landmass. It will be in our best interest to harness it and develop the agricultural sector. Just as we have Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC), if we have Nigerian Agricultural Development Company (NADC), it will guaranty food security and grow our economy.”

He expressed his gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for the implementation of the policy to clean up Ogoni land, adding that the NNPC would soon commence exploration of oil activities in Ogoni land, which according to him would be contributing 300,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
