Tinubu: ‘I have nowhere to go if Nigeria ‘separates’
Bola Tinubu, The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on those clamouring for Nigeria’s separation to discard such ideas – Premium Times reports
Tinubu disclosed this at the Special Ramadan Prayer Tafsir (Lecture) for Lagos State and Nigeria, held at the Lagos House, Marina on Sunday. The politician revealed that the country was better together than separated.
“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,” Tinubu said.

Saraki disclosed this at a press conference at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja on Monday, 3rd May. He stated that the opposition party will continue to proffer solutions to insecurity and other challenges confronting the country.
The former senate president said pressure — through constitutional means — will yield results that the citizens yearn for.
