Mr Tinubu rallied Nigerians to unite and stop ethnic profiling at a town hall meeting with Nigerians in the diaspora on Wednesday in New York.
President Bola Tinubu has called on Nigerians to eschew ethnic profiling and discrimination, asserting that all Nigerians are “a single family.”
Mr Tinubu is infamous for playing the ethnic card in his ambitious political campaigns before emerging as the president of Nigeria, suggesting there was a gang-up to stop him with his infamous “emi lokan” outburst in Ogun.
“You ought to embrace one another. No labelling, no identity; you should remove ethnic identity that tends to differentiate us. We are one single family, living in the same house but living in different rooms,” said Mr Tinubu.
The president, however, expressed delight in the conduct of Nigerians who have continued to excel abroad.
