Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is the only one who can really unite Nigerians, because of his credibility,
The Vice President stated that the only way Nigeria can overcome her present challenges, is for Nigerians from all regions to come together and unite as one people.
Vice President Osinbajo spoke on Saturday, during an interactive session with top Officials of Nigeria’s High Commission, in the United Kingdom, UK, which held at the Abuja House residence of the High Commissioner, in London.
His words: “Yorubas are not better off on their own, Igbos are not better off on their own, the North is not better off on its own. We are better off as one nation, that is why we are strong, and that is why we can face the world.
“Everywhere in the world today, people are coming together to form stronger units, they are not breaking up, this is not the time to break up.
“If you read the economics of smaller nations, they are looking for ways of how they can become stronger by aligning with other nations. How does a country with all the potentials and everything that we have, think that the best way is to break up?
“We are at a point in time in our history where we have security challenges, we have economic challenges, and if you talk about security, there are so many dimensions to it.
“If you look carefully, all of these could happen to any government, and I think we are in the very best position to solve the problems that face us today.”
“Security challenges that we have did not show up in one day, but it is the government, the people, the men and women that will handle them.
“We happen to be that government, and I am very convinced that we are entirely capable of handling it. I think we are in the best possible position to solve these problems.”
Speaking further, the Vice President said concerning President Muhammadu Buhari: “The President is possibly the most popular Nigerian Politician that we have ever had in generations. He is possibly the only person who can go into a place or somewhere, without bossing people to gather, and they will come and listen to him speak.
“We need that level of credibility to be able to solve problems in our country. And I think because of his level of credibility, despite everything, he is still the only one that can call everyone, and even people who do not necessarily agree with him know that he is a man of his words.”
