Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says anything that is not towards the advancement of Nigeria’s unity is senseless.
The VP spoke at a session with Nigerian High Commission officials in London at the Abuja House, the High Commissioner’s residence.
“If you look at all of us sitting here, we represent all the geo-political zones. This is the Nigeria that will succeed, anything else doesn’t make sense”, he said.
Osinabjo urged citizens at home and in the diaspora to promote the message of one country.
He noted that anybody who critically looks at how Nigeria operates will recognize the people are better off in the current system.
“Yorubas are not better off on their own, Igbos are not better off on their own, the North is not better off on its own.”
The VP said oneness is why Nigeria remains strong and can face the world.
“Everywhere in the world, people are coming together to form stronger units, they are not breaking up, this is not the time to break up.
“If you read of the economics of smaller nations, they are looking for ways of how they can become stronger by aligning with other nations.
“How does a country with all the potentials and everything that we have, think that the best way is to break up?”, Osinbajo quipped.
