The National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has called on those clamouring for secession from Nigeria to jettison the idea because the country is better together.
Tinubu spoke at the Special Ramadan Prayer, “Tafsir” Lecture, held at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday.
The former Governor of Lagos State said the country is yet to recover from the effects of the civil war.
He said, “For clamouring for war, 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.”
