He said citizens at home and in the diaspora should promote the message of one country, noting that:

“Anybody who looks at how Nigeria operates will recognize that we are better off in this system, and that is the truth.”

He added:

“Yorubas are not better off on their own, Igbos are not better off on their own, the north is not better off on its own. We are better off as one nation, that is why we are strong and that is why we can face the world.”

Speaking further, the VP explained that:

“We are at a point in time in our history where we have security challenges, we have economic challenges, and if you talk about security, there are so many dimensions to it.
“If you look carefully, all of these could happen to any government and I think we are in the very best position to solve the problems that face us today.
