Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged Nigerian citizens at home and in the diaspora to promote the message of one country, noting that “anybody who looks at how Nigeria operates will recognize that we are better off in this system, and that is the truth.”
The Vice President stated this during an interactive session with top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in the United Kingdom, which was held at the Abuja House residence of the High Commissioner in London.
The VP stated that “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 also went further to reiterate that none of the geopolitical zones are better off on their own, as we all need each other to sail and become strong in other to face the world.
He went further to preach unity amongst the geopolitical zone claiming this is not the best time to clamour or push for break up, that we are in an era where everyone in the world today is coming together to form stronger units.
“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?”
Speaking further, the VP explained that “we are at a point in time in our history where we have security challenges, we have economic challenges, and if you talk about security, there are so many dimensions to it.
“If you look carefully, all of these could happen to any government and I think we are in the very best position to solve the problems that face us today.”
“Security challenges that we have didn’t show up in one day but it is the government, the people, the men and women that will handle them.
“We happen to be that government, and I am very convinced that we are entirely capable of handling it. I think we are in the best possible position to solve these problems,” Prof. Osinbajo added.
