Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has advised those calling for Nigeria to break up to have a rethink, adding that if Nigeria does break, they may need visas to travel to places like Kano.
The VP disclosed this while delivering his speech virtually at the 12th Bola Tinubu colloquium held in commemoration of Tinubu’s 69th birthday in Kano.
Speaking on the event, the Vice-President, who was the special guest of honour said the original idea was for the event to hold virtually, adding that everything changed after Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state offered to host a physical event.
“For the purveyors of breaking up into small components, into small 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,” Osinbajo said.
He added that Kano was a strategic location because it was the home of radical and progressive ideals.
