Vice president Yemi Osinbajo on Friday, November 3 said Nigeria
could be destroyed easily if the Country
is separated into tiny countries.
The vice president said this in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi state during the wedding of his security chief which took place at pastoral centre, Abakaliki located along old Enugu road, Daily Post reports.
“This country is better together; stronger together than separated; there is nothing we gain by being separtated; the country around us are tiny countries; very tiny countries; Rwanda which is celebrated in Africa; Lagos state alone is six times the economy of Rwanda.
“One state in Nigeria; we are a great country and anybody that want to separate us must be rejected and we will refuse it because this country can provide for everyone of us; although our problem is corruption.
“If we check corruption in this country, there is more than enough for all of us; i want us to bear in mind that this country, our country must remain a united country; we must stand together," he said.
Going further, Osinbajo said that: “As we go along where there are difficulties we must sit down and talk about these difficulties and resolve them and move along as a family, as brothers; that is the way great countries are developed; when a country separates into a little bit, they will be picked up and they will be destroyed easily.
“Infact, I was saying to people in one of the state in the south west that when you become a small state then you will see the division in that small state, you will now be fighting each other. Let us come together and stay together.”TV
