The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has said that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, is irrevocably committed to the ideal of one indivisible Nigerian nation.
The Osinbajo’s stance, he said equally aligned with the President Muhammadu Buhari’s consistent efforts to strengthen the unity of the Nigerian nation, which Mustapha said he also believed in.
Making this known in a statement he personally signed on Tuesday, Mustapha said, this was in reaction to a media report where a statement he made on behalf of VP Osinbajo in a recent programme about the unity of Nigeria had been sensationalised.
His statement read: “I have observed with concern the apparent sensationalization of the remarks I made at the 60th Independence Anniversary Church Service, where I stood in for His Excellency, the Vice President.
“For the avoidance of doubt, I want to affirm that His Excellency, the Vice President’ and I remain very firmly and irrevocably committed to the ideal of one indivisible Nigerian nation.
“We are also deeply appreciative of President Muhammadu Buhari’s consistent efforts to strengthen the unity of the Nigerian nation.
“Any suggestion to the contrary is a clear misrepresentation of our common position as a Government.
