Vice-President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said that visa application may be required for people to travel to Kano and other states should the country split apart as agitated by some persons.
Naija News understands that the VP stated this while delivering his speech virtually on Monday, March 29 at the 12th Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s colloquium held in commemoration of his 69th birthday in Kano.
Osinbajo while appreciating Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for his warm welcome to host the event in his state, warned those calling for the secession to have a rethink.
A part of his statement reads: “The initial plan was to hold a completely virtual event but Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State offered to host a physical event which would run alongside the virtual one on Zoom.
“For the purveyors of breaking up into small components, into small countries, perhaps they should be reminded that we would not have been able to accept Governor Ganduje’s offer to come to Kano at a short notice since we would all have needed visas to come to Kano.”
Osinbajo who was a special guest of honour at the colloquium added that Kano was a strategic location because it was the home of radical and progressive ideals.
Meanwhile, the VP in his recent statement has assured Nigerians that the nation is capable of overcoming all its current challenges.
According to Osinbajo, Nigeria has a great future and he believes all the challenges facing the nation are surmountable. Naija News understands that the VP stated this in Owerri, the Imo State capital during a special interdenominational thanksgiving service to mark the first anniversary of the administration of Governor Hope Uzodinma.
