The National Leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has called on aggrieved regions clamouring for secession to jettison the idea as the country is better together than separated.
Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos State, made the call in his message, at the Special Ramadan Prayer, “Tafsir” Lecture, held at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday.
According to him, the war drums some people are beaten will result in the disintegration of the country like Sudan and Iraq.
He further said the country is yet to recover from the effect of the civil war, adding the country can not afford to experience another war.
“For clamouring for war, God will not allow Nigeria to experience war. If we say Nigeria should separate, 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 separate, it’s not acceptable to us. Our prayer is for prosperity and more wealth for the country,” he said.
Tinubu also praised Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat for their achievements in the state.
He expressed satisfaction with their performances, saying that the state has witnessed massive developments since the administration came on board.
Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu, in his message, promised to fulfil his campaign promises and deliver dividends of democracy to residents.
He said the state government has concluded plans to install 2,000 cameras across the state for security surveillance.
