Oshinbajo Says We Can’t Afford Another Civil War.
“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.
Osinbajo said the political elite must rise up to the challenge by speaking the truth and taking action to address the situation in the country.
“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,” he said.
The Vice President said that the elite could make a great difference just by the words they speak.
“And when this happens, we will find ourselves running helter-skelter,’’ Osinbajo said.
He, therefore, urged the political elite in the country to always speak up and stand for the interest of the country and the general public.
Osinbajo assured the APC aspirants that the leadership of the party would ensure a level-playing field for them at the primary election slated for June to ensure that the best aspirant emerged as the candidate.
