“Biafra is buried“, a former Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba has told Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other pro-Biafra agitators agitating for the Republic of Biafra.
Naija News reports that Garba, a former Presidential aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, in response to Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe for speaking against the Senate’s approval of $22.79bn external loan requested for by President Muhammadu Buhari.
This online news platform understands that Senate President, Ahmad Lawan had approved the loan following a heated debate in the Nigerian Senate which ended up in a closed session that lasted for 30minutes.
Abaribe, a senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, had tackled Lawan for “shutting out the rest of the senate members out on the approval of the loan.”
“We are going to pass a loan of $22.7billion for which we are being denied the privilege to express our reservations. You are putting us in a very impossible position.
“There are some aspect of this loan that we object to. I want to ask on behalf of our colleagues here that we take these items one by one and vote on them.”
“I want to quote one popular saying that he who goes a borrowing, goes a sorrowing,” Abaribe had said.
Reacting to, Abaribe’s stance on the matter and the commendations he has received from Nigerians, Garba wrote: “Our brothers from the South East are happily celebrating Senator Abaribe for his effective representation, you know why? Because he joined party politics, won election through the law. So he represents Most of you can too, just stop following the buried Biafra trust in Nigeria.”
