“The message that l have is only to say that this country is one of the greatest countries in the world, there is no question at all about that,” Osinbajo said.
“We see that in another ten years, probably we will be measuring with the 15th largest economies in the world.
“It’s important that everywhere in our country is safe for our people to work and live and I am especially pleased to see that his royal highness has maintained this within this kingdom and anyone can approach him and everyone can live here.
“Our country’s size is important and the diversity of our people and resources are important. But we must stay together to be able to reap the fruit of our size and the development of this country.
“We must remain united to reap the fruit. There are many countries in Africa, some of them are not bigger than Zamfara state, infact many of them are not as big as Zamfara state and they are countries in Africa.”
