Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has warned detractors against fanning embers of disunity among Nigerians.

Osinbajo gave the warning at the palace of Alhaji Abubakar Shehu the 3rd, the Emir of Gombe, during a courtesy visit on Tuesday.

He said those preaching war and fanning embers of disunity among Nigerians would be put to shame.

“Nigeria is one and we believe in unity; therefore those causing problems should stop because they will not succeed,” he said.

The vice president expressed happiness with the level of infrastructural development in the state.

Osinbajo thanked the Emir for the reception accorded him and members of his entourage.

Responding, the first class traditional ruler thanked the vice president for his visit, saying it is an honour to the emirate and the state.

Earlier in his remark, Gov. Inuwa Yahaya, who received the vice president, said he was elated to have him come to inaugurate some executed projects in the state.

Yahaya reiterated the state government’s readiness to support the federal government in its desire to execute national projects in the state.

Osinbajo is in Gombe to attend the 27th edition of National Micro Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Clinic.

He is also expected to flag off the distribution of CAC free Business Registration certificates as well as on a farmiliarisation visit to support Survival Fund and Gombe Industrial Clusters
