The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said that the country will not be able to survive another civil war.
He said this while addressing an entourage of Anambra State governorship aspirants under the aegis of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja.
“The thing about the kind of conflict in this part of the world, developing countries, is that it is usually a war without end. Everyone who thinks he has some monies stored up somewhere will eventually run out of money.”
“Everyone who thinks he can go and hide somewhere, won`t even find a place to hide, in the end, everyone will suffer. Even if you don’t suffer, parents, children, young and old people, and relations will suffer. We cannot afford another civil war in this country, we can`t afford it,” he said.
He challenged the elite in the nation to arise and speak the truth at all times, if the soul of this nation is to be salvaged.
“I pray that our country will never know conflict, but I know that every conflict is as a result of elite failure to speak up the truth and tell the truth to their communities.”
“At the end of the day, it is the political elite that determines what happens in every society, keeping quiet could lead to a more dangerous situation. No one politician can win an election all by himself. I also want to advise you against the winner takes all syndrome,” he said.
