Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says he does not believe in one Nigeria at any cost, even though he wants the country to remain united and peaceful.

Mr Obasanjo stated this in Abeokuta at his investiture as a fellow of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyor on Wednesday as reported from Peoples Gazette.

He stated, “It is better that Nigeria stays together and find solutions to its challenges than for each tribe to go its separate way.

“I am a strong believer of one Nigeria, but not one Nigeria at any cost. But one Nigeria where every Nigerian can feel proud that he or she has a stake in this country.”

He noted, “Those of us who have shed part of our blood and sweat for this country, we did so because we wanted a country where every Nigerian can claim as his or her own.

“I believe that if we talk among ourselves the way we should and if we change the narrative, I believe this is a great country.
