The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has kicked against calls for Biafra and Oduduwa republic.
Speaking on Sunday at a Special Ramadan Prayer Tafsir lecture held at the Lagos House, Marina, Tinubu said the drums of war being beaten by some people may result in crisis like Sudan and Iraq.
The former Lagos governor stated he cannot afford to experience another civil war.
“For clamouring for war, God will not allow Nigeria to experience war. If we say Nigeria should separate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq. Such war does not end on time and we are even yet to recover from the civil war.”
“We are better together than divided. I have nowhere I am going. Whoever has experienced war in the past will not pray for such. Nigeria will not separate; it is not acceptable to us. Our prayer is for prosperity and more wealth for the country and not separation or war,” he said.
Tinubu also commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr. Obafemi Kadiri Hamzat, for their achievements.
He added that the state has witnessed massive developments under the Sanwo-Olu administration.
The Governor of Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in his message promised to fulfill his campaign promises and deliver dividends of democracy to Lagosians.
He disclosed that the State government is in the process of installing 2,000 cameras across the state for security surveillance.
