Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said Nigerians would live better together despite ethnic differences.

Osinbajo spokesman Laolu Akande in a statement released in Abuja on Sunday said the vice president had an interactive session with senior officials from the Nigerian High Commission in the UK at the residence Abuja House of the High Commissioner in London.

The vice-president said the federal government would strive to ensure fairness and balance.

“If you look at all of us sitting here, we represent all geopolitical areas. Nigeria will succeed, everything else does not make sense.

He said citizens at home and in the Diaspora should promote the One Country message.

According to him, anyone who looks at how Nigeria works will recognize that he is better at it.

“The Yorubas are not better on their own, the Igbos are not better on their own, the North does not do better on its own.

“We’re better off as one nation, that’s why we’re strong and that’s why we can take on the world.

“All over the world today people are coming together to form stronger units, they are not separating, now is not the time to separate.

“If you read the economics of small countries, they are looking for ways to become stronger by aligning with other countries.

“How does a country with all the potential and all we have, think the best way is to break up?

Osinbajo said Nigeria was at a point in its history when it faced security and economic challenges.

He said such challenges could happen to any government, adding that Nigeria would overcome the problems.

“The security challenges we have did not arise overnight, but it is the government, the people, the men and women who will manage them.

“We happen to be that government, and I’m very convinced that we are quite capable of managing it. I think we are in the best possible position to resolve these issues.

The vice president spoke about the popularity and credibility of President Muhammadu Buhari, identifying him as a crucial factor in galvanizing the entire system in solving the challenges.

He said the president was perhaps the most popular Nigerian politician the nation has had in generations.

Osinbajo said the president could possibly be the only person who could walk into a place or somewhere without forcing people to gather and that they would come and listen to him speak.

“We need that level of credibility to be able to solve the problems in our country.

“And I think because of his level of credibility, despite everything, he’s still the only one who can call anyone, and even people who don’t necessarily agree with him know he’s a man. of speech. “

He urged the staff of the high commission to remain good ambassadors of the country and strive to promote justice and equity in their activities as they redouble their efforts to promote government programs and policies.

“We have to promote a country; but, of course, everyone is talking about fairness, fairness and balance, and that’s what we have to try to do all the time.

“Let us not be discouraged, let us be very confident that our country will come out of all these problems and come out stronger.

“So I urge everyone who represents our country to make sure that we have to represent the country well and be able to speak in the right forum about the country and what we are doing. “

Osinbajo congratulated the high commissioner and senior officials of the mission.

He said he was satisfied with the excellent report on developments at the high commission.

“And I fully agree with the High Commissioner that there is clearly here a demonstration of great professionalism and a desire to completely correct the image that could have been created on Nigeria.

“I really want to congratulate you and say that the news we are hearing about the high commission is very commendable,” he said.

High Commissioner of Nigeria to the United Kingdom, Amb. Sarafa Isola, Deputy High Commissioner, Amb. Sanni Suleiman, Defense Advisor, Brigadier-General. Buhari Baffa, among other staff, attended the meeting.
