Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that the only way Nigeria can overcome its current challenges is when Nigerians unite as one people.
Osinbajo disclosed this on Saturday while speaking with top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in the United Kingdom, held at the Abuja House residence of the High Commissioner in London.
The Vice President further stated that anybody who looks at how Nigeria operates now will recognize that we are better off in this system.
He said, “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. We are better off as one nation, that is why we are strong and that is why we can face the world.”
According to the VP, he disagreed that breaking up is the solution for Nigeria, emphasizing that no country anywhere in the world wants to break up any more.
“Everywhere in the world today, people are coming together to form stronger units, they are not breaking up, this is not the time to break up.
“If you read 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 said.
