Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has warned Nigerians angling for the break-up of the country to have a rethink, as they would need visa to visit Kano if their wishes come to pass.
Osinbajo said this while delivering his speech virtually at the 12th Bola Tinubu colloquium held in commemoration of Tinubu’s 69th birthday in Kano.
According to Osinbajo, who initiated the event 12 years ago, the initial plan was to hold a completely virtual event but Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State offered to host a physical event which would run alongside the virtual one on Zoom.
The Vice President said: “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 a short notice since we would all have needed visas to come to Kano.”
Osinbajo further added that Kano was a strategic location because it was the home of radical and progressive ideals.
