The Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo has stated that if the country breaks up, Nigerians would be the ones to lose out. A statement released by his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, said the Vice President said this when he received the national executive of the Nigeria Union of Journalists NUJ), at the presidential villa in Abuja. The NUJ national executive was led to the presidential villa by Chris Isiguzo, president of the union.

While receiving the journalists, Osinbajo said there is a need to promote the message of unity in the country, and advised journalists to be professional in the discharge of their duties.

“This country is ours, whether we are press, politicians or religious people. The country is ours, and we must do everything to ensure that the country remains safe, secure, and united, and this so important.

I thank you for your civic vigilance, for the very kind words you have spoken about Nigeria, and for remaining steadfast in your belief for the rule of law and press freedom in the country.

As I keep saying, the elite in our country, those of us who have had the benefit of education, positions and all of that, we owe millions of our people who are poor, who have no access and have no voice, a duty to ensure that we don’t let things become worse for them.

There are so many countries faced with a national challenge and where you have people who are prepared to subvert the entire republic, the press works actively with government to ensure that the information space is protected in such a way that people who want to subvert the republic are not allowed to do so.

But I think it is important, because your voices as respected members of the fourth estate of the realm, your voices are very important in moderating the kinds of views that we hear constantly which in the end, (if care is not taken) subverts the polity.

It is important for us to continue to emphasise that the unity of this country is crucial, because if this country breaks up in any way or becomes the subject of what some people will like it to be, all of us will lose out. Obviously, the elite will survive in any way but the vast majority of our people will not.

So, I will urge that we should as much as possible do whatever we can in our spaces that we occupy to keep emphasising that we cannot afford a situation where the national unity of this country is compromised, or where the country is made the theater of conflict and all sorts of insurgencies and crimes.”

Is this man still the vice president, have never heard from him for a long time.
"we cannot afford a situation where the national unity of this country is compromised, or where the country is made the theater of conflict and all sorts of insurgencies and crimes.”
Is this man blind to what is happening in Nigeria? Where is the peace? where is the unity? Nigeria that 8s a war zone survival of the fittest.

The  Words of our Elders are Words of Wisdom. The scarecrows in the North who say they will go it alone, should remember the efforts of one Inellugent President of their own, President Musa Yar"adua, who saved the Country from collapse by his efforts in the Niger Delta. If the Country breaks apart today, all the Arewa slave masters that saturate the oil industry will be sent packing to go and sell groundnuts in the Desert.
