Nigeria’s unity not negotiable, Osinbajo insists

Yemi Osinbajo


The acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, again on Sunday told those behind the agitations for secession in parts of the country to perish the thought, saying Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable.

Osinbajo stated this while receiving members of the Muslim community in Abuja and its environs who paid him the Sallah homage, to mark the 2017 Eid-el-Fitr at his official residence, Aguda House, inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.



He said Nigerians must work hard to ensure that “the country remains united so that its citizens could enjoy the benefits of a united nation together.”

“Our unity is not negotiable. We should make sure that we remain united in order to enjoy the resources God has blessed Nigeria with. So many nations envy what we have as a nation,” Osinbajo told his guests.

He urged Nigerians to join hands with the present administration to ensure that the government takes proper care of the people.

He said the government was not interested in citizens’ ethnic backgrounds, adding that government’s concern was to administer the nation’s resources in a manner that would benefit majority of the people.

He added, “Your ethnicity does not matter and that is why for us, unity is so important that we must work together to make sure that our country is able to take care of the millions of people we govern.

“God expects us to take care of the poor and those suffering, to ensure that we use government resources only in such a way that will be for the the good of the majority of our people.”

While praying for President Muhammadu Buhari’s quick recovery, Osinbajo expressed the belief that the President, who is currently receiving medical attention in London, United Kingdom, would return to the country in good health.

He was confident that Buhari would complete his term in good health.

“We are praying everyday and we know that the Lord God Almighty ‘who we serve’ will bring our President back in good health and that he will serve this nation with the same determination and the same spirit of oneness, the same spirit that he has always served this nation with from when he was a young man.

“He will serve this nation and complete the period of his service in good health, in good shape and our country will be the better for it,” he stated.

Earlier, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello, had said paying sallah homage was customary as a mark of respect for the President.

Bello thanked security agencies, religious and traditional rulers in the FCT for playing a great role in sustaining the peace being enjoyed in Nigeria’s capital city.

He said the kind of harmonious relationship they had exhibited needed to be replicated in the 36 states of Nigeria.

The acting Imam of Abuja National Mosque, Mohammad  Adamu, and the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, FCT Chapter, Revd. Samson Jonah, delivered goodwill messages and prayed for the quick recovery of the President during the visit.


Other members of the delegation included the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen; acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu; the Director General of the Department of State Services,  Lawal Daura; some members of the Federal Executive Council and some presidential aides.
