National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said the country is better together than separated, warning all those clamoring for secession to jettison the idea.

The former governor of Lagos spoke on Sunday at the State House, Marina at the Special Ramadan Prayer Tafsir Lecture.

Tinubu warned that the war drums some people are beating would result in the disintegration of the country like Sudan and Iraq.

According to him, Nigeria was yet to recover from the effect of the civil war, warning that the nation could not afford to experience another war.

In his words: “For those 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 prayers are for prosperity and more wealth for the country.”

The APC National leader commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr. Kadiri Hamzat for their achievements in the state.

He said the state had witnessed massive developments since the administration of Sanwo-Olu came on board and expressed satisfaction with their performances.

Speaking, Sanwo-Olu promised to fulfill his campaign promises and deliver dividends of democracy.

The governor said the state government was in the process of installing 2,000 cameras across the state for security surveillance.

“We are going to install 2,000 cameras in the whole state. We will stop at nothing at ensuring dividends of democracy,” he said.

He disclosed that the proposed LASTMA buses, which his administration would unveil this month (May) would eradicate the menace of okada riders.
