At least ten Nigerian states, according to him, “have bigger GDPs than those countries.”

Osinbajo added that the violent news coming out of the nation did not accurately portray the reality of the entire nation because it had a large enough landmass.

He said that in order for the world to fully comprehend the scope and magnitude of Nigeria’s complicated problems, it is important for everyone to be aware of its population and geographic expanse.

According to a statement signed on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo made the argument when fielding questions from a group of Harvard Business School students who visited him on Friday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to the VP, “First, there is a need to appreciate the size of the country, which is crucial to understanding what the issues are.

“For instance, Borno State is about the size of the whole of the United Kingdom plus Sweden or Denmark. So, when it is reported that there is violence in Nigeria, it is probably an incident in one remote area of the country, and many people in Abuja and Lagos may hear about it on social media, such is the size of this country.

 Responding to the question about some inaccurate characterization of Nigeria in sections of the international community, the Vice President said, “It is important to constantly engage the international community to show them how we feel about the stereotypes. It comes down to the work we do as a government and people about the characterization. This is why the work around the ease of doing business is the initiative that has behind it, the whole idea that this environment is one that is welcoming to business and people can come and do business.
