Unity, tolerance key to national security, says Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has declared that Nigeria can only experience security and thrive where unity and tolerance exist among the people.
He said some of the greatest nations in the world are multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and a united people working together, hence they are economically successful.
Osinbajo stated this during a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa by a delegation from the Arewa Concerned People for National Unity and Religious Tolerance from Kano, led by Alhaji Auwal Maidabino and Prince Usman Ado-Bayero.
According to the Vice President, “There is no great nation anywhere that has not had this sort of challenge, especially where you have a multi-racial, multi-religious setup. And the greatest nations in the world are multi-racial, multi-religious, and multi-ethnic.
“As a matter of fact, some of these things are as important as the economy and security; for the reason that a united people, people who see themselves as one, are more likely to be economically successful, more likely to be able to secure themselves and secure their borders, and more likely to work together for the goodness and greatness of their people.
