National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has told those clamouring for secession to jettison the idea as Nigeria is better together.
Speaking at the Special Ramadan Prayer, "Tafsir" Lecture, held at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday, May 2, Tinubu said Nigeria separating is not acceptable as disintegration could push the country into becoming another Iraq or Sudan.
"…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."
