Acting President Yemi Osinbajo said yesterday that the Federal Government as one of its primary duties and responsibilities will do everything possible to protect Nigeria's sovereignty and crush every secessionist movement within the provisions of the constitution.
He stated this yesterday at the Federal Executive Council meeting with leaders of thought from the Southeastern part of the country at State House , Abuja.
“We are also resolute in our determination to protect every Nigerian, everywhere in the country.We will do everything within our power to defend and uphold the terms of our constitution, which declares that we are one nation under God”, Osinbajo noted.
His words: “As leaders, we carry the burden to secure the peace, progress and prosperity of our people, and that is why our voices ought to be heard and heard loud and clear at moments like this in the defense and articulation of what is truly beneficial to the nation and the people, and what is right and patriotic.
“Nigeria  has gone through some really difficult times. We have survived bloody coups, several rounds of ethno-religious violence, and emerged from a long and bloody Civil War. All of us here have seen close-up what violence can do to a country, and I believe I speak for us all when I say that no one here is keen to see Nigeria embroiled in violence or bloodshed of any kind. 

“Especially not when we are only just emerging from a brutal insurgency that has consumed more than 20,000 of our brothers and sisters and children, as well as the better part of a decade”.
He said, “Indeed you’re all aware of the Igbo proverb that says that “A man who rushes into battle does not realize that battle entails death.” We are witnesses to the unspeakable devastation that war continues to inflict across the world. No one who has seen the horrors of war – even just on television – would wish it on their worst enemy.
“It is also clear that wars sometimes start, not with bullets, but with words. Hateful, incendiary speech, opening floodgates of blood. The tongue, like the pen, is often mightier than the sword – because it is what pushes the sword into action. When we throw words like stones in a marketplace we do not know who or what it will hit.


“Knowing this, under no conditions whatsoever should we tolerate or excuse or justify hate speech or hateful conduct of any kind, especially where such is illegal”.
