Osinbajo stated this on Monday while delivering his speech virtually at the 12th Bola Tinubu Colloquium in commemoration of Tinubu’s 69th birthday in Kano.

The vice president advised those calling for Nigeria to break up to have a rethink, noting that the event held in Kano underscored the point that the country was stronger and better together.

“By this gesture governor Ganduje has helped us to tell two stories; this is the first time that the colloquium is being hosted outside Lagos and Abuja, the capital city.

“And it is befitting that Kano should be that place, this city of radical and progressive ideas and ideologies, a city whose leading political lights have been left of centre, which is the dominant tendency within our great party the APC.

“Second, it helps us to underscore the point that this country and its people are stronger and more powerful together than apart.

“For the purveyors of breaking up into small components/countries, perhaps they should be reminded that we would not have been able to accept Governor Ganduje’s offer to come to Kano at short notice since we would all have needed visas to come to Kano.”

Meanwhile, Transportation Minister, Chibuike Amaechi has rejected calls for secession, saying that the destiny of Nigeria can best actualised in the context of one indivisible and united nation.
