Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday preached for the continuity of Nigeria’s ‘marriage’ through harmonious interactions and mutual dependency.

The acting president enjoined those agitating for self-independence to bury the idea and work for peace and unity of Nigeria.

Mr Osinbajo’s call came at the time agitations for independence by certain regional groups continue to resonate in the country.

Already the 3-months ultimatum issued by the coalition of Northern youths on Igbos to relocate from their regions before October 1 this year has sparked reactions from traditional rulers and governors of the two regions.

The Mr Osinbajo, a professor, who spoke in Ibadan the Oyo State capital at the wedding ceremony of the former Interim National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Bisi Akande’s daughter, Wuraola and Olawale Solabi, said nations with different ethnic nationalities were in a form of marriage.

He said quarrels and agitations can come up at any time but insisted that the most important thing was for them to give peace a chance and work in unity.

“Today is a special one for Wale and Wura. Marriage is a very large institution that requires a lot of prayers. It is the same marriage that nations go through.

“Our nation has been in marriage for a while now. Sometimes there are quarrels within that marriage. Sometimes there is disagreement. What is important is that you must remain together. You must remain united,” he said.
