Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has reiterated the need of Nigeria remaining together in order to achieve required development.
The Vice-President addressed at the Abuja House official house of the High Commissioner in London over the weekend during an interactive session with top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in the United Kingdom (UK).
Professor Osinbajo also told Nigerians that the current issues the country is undergoing would become history, according to a statement released yesterday in Abuja by Mr. Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice-President.
“If you look at all of us here, we represent all of the geopolitical zones,” he remarked. This will be the Nigeria that succeeds. “Anything else is illogical.”
“Anyone who looks at how Nigeria runs will recognize that we are better off in this system,” the Vice-President stated, adding that Nigerians at home and abroad must promote the concept of one Nigeria. That is correct.
“On their own, the Yoruba are not better off; the Igbo are not better off; the North is not better off.” We are better off as a single country. That is why we are strong and capable of overcoming obstacles.
Osinbajo emphasized the importance of Nigeria’s unity, saying that people come together to form stronger units all over the world.

The Vice-President stated that “now is not the time to break up,” and that “now is not the time to break up.”
“If you read about the economy of smaller nations, you’ll notice that they’re looking for ways to get stronger by joining with other nations,” he continued. How can a country with all of its potential and assets believe that breaking up is the best option?
“We are at a crossroads in our history, when we face security and economic concerns.” When it comes to security, there are numerous aspects to consider.
“If you look closely, you’ll notice that all of these things might happen to any government.” I believe we are in the best possible position to address the issues we confront today.”
“The security challenges we’ve faced haven’t appeared overnight. However, it will be the government, the people, and the men and women who will deal with them.
“We happen to be that government, and I am confident that we will be able to handle it perfectly.” He stated, “I believe we are in the best possible position to handle these difficulties.”
President Muhammadu Buhari’s popularity and credibility, according to Osinbajo, is a critical aspect in galvanizing the entire system in tackling the nation’s difficulties.
“The President is, without a doubt, the most popular Nigerian politician in centuries,” he remarked. He may be the only person who can walk into a room or a location without commanding people to congregate and listen to him talk.
“In order to tackle problems in our country, we need that level of credibility.” And, despite everything, I believe he is the only one who can call everyone because of his degree of credibility. Even those who disagree with him recognize that he is a man of his words.”
