Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has stated that Nigeria’s problems will increase if the country breaks apart.
The vice-president spoke on Thursday when members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo support group visited him in Abuja.
“it is wrong” for Nigeria, which is the largest economy in Africa, to break apart.
“We must never relent in ensuring that we keep to the ideals of the country and we don’t lose sight of what we are trying to achieve here,” he said.
“People who suggest that the country breaks up, whatever may be the reason for their views, are certainly not correct and we must say so to them at every turn.
“The unity of this country is important for all of the different ethnicities, religions, everybody. Whatever the group or ideology, unity is important for every one of us.
“If you fragment, the problems are going to multiply, poverty will multiply.”
