Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has warned Sunday Igboho, Asari Dokubo, Prof. Banji Akintoye and others agitating for secession of Nigeria to have a rethink.

Osinbajo spoke on Monday at the 12th Bola Tinubu colloquium held in commemoration of Tinubu’s 69th birthday in Kano.

The Vice President, who spoke virtually, as he could not make it to Kano due to bad weather, said if Nigeria was to be broken down into smaller countries, one would need a visa to come to Kano.

In his words: “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.”

He, however, said Tinubu, had become an institution in Nigeria due to his peculiar and distinguished leadership style.

According to Osinbajo, there had been no Nigerian leader that has been instrumental in raising other leaders as Tinubu had done in the last few decades.

He added that Tinubu believed that economic, social and cultural development depended on enabling a caucus of ideas which he had encouraged in the last few decades.

Osinbajo stated: “Also central to his leadership style is the fact that he is able to lead a vast array of persons with diverse views and is completely comfortable in engaging in diverse ideas ranging from political to religious debates.”


  1. I think Tinubu raised Osinbanjo to vp of a failed country, dat is y d VP made such comments, let dem come to the west to hold such gathering, failed leadership failed country

  2. Full of mistake people, going to Kano for a birthday, did it make Niger to be one,if he likes he can have in France, his billion dollars can go there with him.wayoo leaders indeed, but one day,y you will know that you all are thief’s

  3. Rmy thinking to their madness is that they are all selfish, how one could think that for a birthday party you need speak about unity? Instead why not having an urgent meeting for the aggitation instead of using a stupid choloquium to talk rubish. We will see who owns who when the aggitation begin to strengthen. Stupid elite call leader

  4. What has our agitation for freedom from the monstrous North got to do with a known looter’s birthday celebration? Point of correction about getting a visa to Kano. If Nigeria breaks up TINUBU wouldn’t think of having his kolo in Kano. One of the cities in ODUDUWA will serve the purpose. If TINUBU likes let him shift the next kolo to Sambisa forests Nigeria MUST break up. You are just talking BULLSHIT. You people are just enslaving yourselves the more. Tell me one Northern politician that had his birthday celebration in Ibadan or ijebu.

    • You should know quite well that all these are politics, he’s pouring cold water on the ground in preparation towards 2023 which I believe he will fail.
