The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has declared that it is unacceptable for Nigeria to break up because he has nowhere to go.
Tinubu tated this while speaking at the Special Ramadan Prayer Tafsir (Lecture) for Lagos State and Nigeria, held at the Lagos House, Marina on Sunday.
The former Lagos State governor kicked out calls for secession, saying Nigeria is better as one country than separated.
He said the war drums some people were beating would result in the disintegration of the country like Sudan and Iraq.
According to him, Nigeria is yet to recover from the effect of the civil war, hence, cannot afford to experience another war.
”For clamouring for war, God will not allow Nigeria to experience war. If we say Nigeria should seperate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq. Such war does not end on time. We are yet to recover from the civil war.
”We are better together. I have nowhere I am going. Whoever has experienced war in the past will not pray for such.
“Nigeria will not seperate, it’s not acceptable to us. Our prayers is for prosperity and more wealth for the country,” he said.
KanyiDaily recalls that the vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo had warned that Nigeria may break up if efforts are not made to address the “existing cracks.”
