According to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, if Nigeria breaks up, poverty will rise. Yesterday, Osinbajo told a delegation from the Muhammadu Buhari Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group at the Presidential Villa in Abuja that this was the case. He believes that Nigeria's security challenges will be resolved in time and that the country will grow stronger.
The call for disintegration made by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, and other secessionists is a movement that the Nigerian government is unwilling to listen to due to the serious consequences.
The Nigerian government has warned these secessionists and urged them to follow the law rather than causing chaos and disrupting the country's unity. Professor Yemi Osibanjo's warning about secessionist agitation must be understood by Nnamdi Kanu and other secessionists.
It's past time for us to realize that we can't survive without each other. This is not the time to call for disintegration. If you believe that those in charge aren't doing a good job, you have the power to make a change through your vote or by running for office.
We must never give up on upholding the country's ideals and never lose sight of what we are attempting to achieve here. President Muhammadu Buhari has always been committed to resolving the country's problems, starting with security.
Those who support secession should reconsider their position because it would be harmful rather than beneficial. Regardless of our ethnicities, religions, or ideologies, the unity of Nigeria is important to us all.
