The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday, cautioned proponents of secession in the country, advising them to drop such campaigns.
According to Osinbajo who made the call while inaugurating Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Marshal Inspectorate Training School, built by Delta State Government in Owa-Alero, Ika North East Local Government Area, Nigeria remains better as one united country.
He said that Nigeria was a great nation notwithstanding its diversity and current challenges, adding that Nigerians should harness the inherent benefits in the country to promote sustainable socio-economic growth and development.
“To truly achieve this, Nigeria as a nation, must continue to promote justice, equity and fairness among the diverse groups in the country.
“We must caution those who are agitating for the break-up of the country against such agitation. It is important for our people to understand that the unity of this country must not be compromised,” Osinbajo said.
He commended Delta State Government under Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for building the training institute for the federal agency and said that such partnership between states and the Federal Government was needed to promote sustainable development in the country.
