Nigerian Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has once again warned against the breaking up of Nigeria, saying the country’s problems would increase if it eventually disintegrate. ayokinews.com reports
Osinbajo made this known when he addressed members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo support group who visited him at his office in Abuja (FCT).
The Vice President stated that “it is wrong” for Nigeria, which happens to be the largest growing economy in Africa, to break apart.
“We must never relent in ensuring that we keep to the ideals of the country and we don’t lose sight of what we are trying to achieve here.
“People who suggest that the country breaks up, whatever may be the reason for their views, are certainly not correct and we must say so to them at every turn.
“The unity of this country is important for all of the different ethnicities, religions, everybody. Whatever the group or ideology, unity is important for every one of us.
“If you fragment, the problems are going to multiply, poverty will multiply,” Osinbajo said.
