Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says building a nationhood requires leaders across every sphere of influence to sacrifice personal interest and achieve a consensus that guarantees a win-win for all.

He spoke in Abuja at the weekend during the 10th anniversary of UFUK Dialogue Foundation.

“A sustained and productive nationhood gives access to diverse multi-ethnic strengths and provide opportunities to gain more from being together than otherwise.

“It’s true that in the last two decades, we face severe threats to our mutual coexistence. Violent extremism in the North-East has resulted in the destruction and unfortunate loss of lives of many, banditry and kidnappings has traumatised families,” Osinbajo said.
