There’ll Be No Bloodshed, War Under My Watch – Osinbajo

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo meeting with a good number of governors from the 36 states of the federation on Wednesday.

He told them that under his watch there will be no bloodshed or war of any kind.

Although the meeting held behind closed doors at the State House Banquet Hall, Osinbajo expressed disappointment over recent divisive comments credited to youths from the North and South East.

According to the acting president, the Federal Government would not fold its arms and see Nigeria go through the pathway of bloodshed or war.

He also noted that Nigerians were bound as one indivisible entity by provisions of the 1999 constitution, a principle that should be at the back of those agitations.

“We must not allow the careless use of words, careless expressions that may degenerate into crisis, we are a people that like to talk and we express ourselves loudly but it is expected of us to recognise that it is those same words that can cause conflagration that can unfortunately lead to calamity.

“We must be careful of how we express ourselves. What we have seen in recent times is that some of the languages used have tended to degenerate badly and I think that we must begin to speak up against some of these things and ensure that we protect our democracy and our nation from the hands of rhetorics that may just divide us.
