The Obong of Calabar, Edidem Ekpo Okon Abasi Otu V, has conferred a chieftaincy title on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
The Acting President was conferred with one of the highest traditional titles of the Efik Kingdom, Ada Idaha Ke Efik Eburutu, on Thursday when he visited the traditional ruler at his palace in Calabar.
The Obong of Calabar called on the Federal Government to fulfil the campaign promises made to the people before the elections.
He also asked all political office holders to unite in building one Nigeria irrespective of political affiliations.
Professor Osinbajo, who was on an official visit to Cross River State, emphasised the need for Nigeria to remain one united country.
According to him, those seeking division in the country must understand that Nigeria is great today because of its population, size, and unity despite the odds.
“The reason why this country is as great as it is, is because of its diversity. It is because we have here people of every race, people of every tribe bringing in their different cultures, their different strengths (together).
“All of the different things that make each one of our ethnic groups great comes together in one country. We are greater when we are together than when we are apart. This country is greater together than apart. Every one of our ethnic groups needs the support of the other,” Osinbajo said at the Palace of the Obong of Calabar.
Earlier, the Acting President was received at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport by the Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade.
Governor Ayade praised Professor Osinbajo for his visit to the state, which he described as memorable.
