The Presidency has assured Nigerians that there is no reason to worry about what it describes as the hollow outburst by the disputed leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on returning to the country “with hell’’.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, gave the assurance in a statement on Tuesday.
He said Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari is strong enough to defend its territory against any threat.
Shehu stressed that the utterances of the disputed IPOB leader were a mere distraction that would not be allowed to undermine the relationship Nigeria has enjoyed with other countries.
He said the Buhari administration has the assurances of other nations that they would continue to reciprocate the respect Nigeria has for their sovereignty.

NO CAUSE FOR WORRY OVER KANU’S OUTBURST, SAYS PRESIDENCY
The Presidency wishes to restate that Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari is strong enough to defend its territory against any threat, assuring all Nigerians that there is no reason to worry about the hollow outburst by Nnamdi Kanu, the disputed leader of IPOB on returning to the country “with hell’’.
Instead, we see the re-enactment of his bizarre, episodic threat as a mere distraction which will not be allowed to detract from the existing cordial relations between Nigeria and other countries.
The Buhari administration is in constant touch with other friendly nations and has the best assurances that they would continue to reciprocate the respect Nigeria has for the sovereignty of their nations.
Nigerians have nothing to fear from this.
