Nigeria Will Lose If It Breaks Up – Osinbajo






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has stated that Nigeria would lose more if the country breaks-up.

The Vice President, who spoke at the National Social Cohesion Dialogue in Abuja, stated that there are “more opportunities for prosperity” if Nigeria remains one.

He expressed hope that the country would remain one irrespective of the calls for secession.

He said: “All Nigerians have a constitutional right to live, work and enjoy their lives in peace and safety under the law. The classification of Nigerians as “indigenes” and “non-indigenes” is a form of apartheid and contradicts our declared aspirations towards equality and unity.



“This is why when we launched our Social Investment Programmes, the eligible beneficiaries were selected based on their states of residence and none was discriminated against on any basis.

“Our destinies have become so interlinked as to be inseparable. This is why this administration is investing heavily in transportation infrastructure – road, rail, sea  and river ports – to reduce the distances between our people and link localities to markets and enable trade, travel and tourism.

“Nigeria will be a great loser if we were to break up; when we see the greatest economic advantage to our size about to come to life. In short, staying together as a collective affords each of our communities far more opportunities for prosperity than they would have if they went their separate ways.”
