Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s Vice President, has advised those calling for secession to have a re-think, stating that if Nigeria breaks, they might need visas to travel to places like Kano.
Osinbajo made this remark while delivering his speech virtually at the 12th colloquium and 69th birthday of Bola Tinubu held in Kano.
The special guest of honour, Yemi Osinbajo, said the initial plan was for the event to be completely virtual, but Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje offered to hold a physical meeting that will run concurrently with the virtual Zoom party.
“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.
Osinbajo said Kano was a strategic location because it was home to radical and progressive ideals.
