The National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has told those clamouring for the division of Nigeria to jettison the idea as the country is better together.
The former Lagos State Governor stated at the Special Ramadan Prayer, “Tafsir” Lecture, held at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday.
According to him, another civil war could have serious consequences and lead Nigeria to becoming another Iraq or Sudan. He further said the country is yet to recover from the last civil war, adding we can not afford to experience another war.
“For clamouring for war, God will not allow Nigeria to experience it. If we say Nigeria should separate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq. Such war does not end in 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.”
