Buhari backs Western Sahara on self-determination from Morocco

Buhari backs Western Sahara on self-determination from Morocco

Published by Family Writers

By Levinus Nwabughiogu ABUJA – President Muhammadu Buhari has thrown his weight behind the people of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, SADR, otherwise called Western Sahara, stating that Nigeria would ensure the realization of their self-determination and independence. He however said the secession would be pursued in full recognition of the several extant resolutions of the African Union, AU, on the right of the Sahrawi people for self-determination. The struggle for independence Checks by Vanguard indicated that the SADR is a partially recognized state that controls a thin strip of area in the Western Sahara region and claims sovereignty over the entire territory of Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony.

According to Wikipedia, the country was proclaimed by the Polisario Front on February 27, 1976, in Bir Lehlou, Western Sahara. The SADR government controls about 20–25% of the territory it claims and calls the territories under its control the Liberated Territories or the Free Zone. On the on the hand, Morocco controls and administers the rest of the disputed territory and calls the lands its Southern Provinces. While SADR government considers the Moroccan-held territory to be occupied territory, Morocco also considers the much smaller SADR-held territory to be a buffer zone. The claimed capital of the SADR is Laayoune, while the temporary capital which was due to the government incursion is Tifariti also previously known as Bir Lehlou.

  1. Do we really have abled men in East? Oh sorry I forgot,... Those who should have been considered as able are all saboteurs. Sometimes I think begin to wonder who is deceiving who, how can we keep calm and wash buhari using us like his slaves? If he hates self determination, why is he in support of others while he sees Biafra as a minor case? Because he's a Muslim therefore he must support his Muslim brothers gain freedom. Where are Christians? Where are ur support for Biafra your fellow Christians?
