“I have nowhere I am going” – Tinubu rejects agitations for secession
National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu says purveyors of disintegration rhetoric risk plunging the nation into a needless war.
He said that Nigeria could become like Sudan and Iraq if war was allowed to break out in the country.
Tinubu said he was against such rhetoric because he has nowhere to go in case of war in Nigeria.
The former Lagos State Governor spoke at the Special Ramadan Prayer, “Tafsir” Lecture, held at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday.
Tinubu said that more than 50 years after, the Nigerian Civil War’s effects could still be felt in the country, advising against a recurrence.
He said, “God will not allow Nigeria to experience war. If we say Nigeria should separate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq. Such war does not end on time. We are yet to recover from the civil war.
“We are better together. I have nowhere I am going. Whoever has experienced war in the past will not pray for such. Nigeria will not separate, it’s not acceptable to us. Our prayer is for prosperity and more wealth for the country.”
Also, the APC National Leader lauded Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr. Babafemi Hamzat for their credible performance in office.
