President Muhammadu Buhari has advised Nigerians to forge a common path towards achieving the desired Nigeria of their dream, describing it as the only way to ensure that the efforts of the founding fathers to have a unified, peaceful and secured nation will not be in vain.
This was one of the key points raised in his address to commemorate the 60th Independence anniversary held at the Eagle square, Abuja
President Buhari Disclosed that to forge a common path, Nigerians need to jettison political and tribal differences, stop asking which part of Nigeria do you come from and start seeing each other as fellow Nigerians. According to him, “To promote this, Nigerians need to get committed to pursuing their goals and aspirations together and only then can the nation move forward”. He added that the problem of Nigeria is not for the government alone but deliberate effort should be made by all to resolve the challenges despite the seeming differences.
President Buhari while assuring that Nigerians will tread the path of peace and prosperity as well continue to uphold and cherish the country’s unity, call on citizens to exercise restraint, tolerance and mutual respect in airing their grievances and desist from rumors that will undermine the efforts of the federal government.
He stressed the need to strengthen the economy by providing a sustainable means of livelihood, that will eradicate poverty and set the country on the path of prosperity. He explained that his administration over the last three years has maintained economic growth and development through several government assisted projects and interventions like: Tradermoni, Farmermoni, School feeding programme, Agricultural intervention and Job creation efforts.
He reassured Nigerians that his administration will remain resolute in protecting their lives and properties, as well as tackling security challenges and economic crisis bedeviling the nation. He therefore, made a passionate appeal to Nigerians to be actively involved in providing community level intelligence to curb security challenges.Add to favorites
