Nigeria @63: Esan Central Local Government Council Chairman Sues for Unity, Peace
The Esan central local government council chairman, Hon Paul Onosedeba Iyoha, has called on Nigerians to work collectively towards the greatness of the country.
In a message made available to newsmen in Irrua, the administrative headquarters of Esan Central Local Government, he said, “Although we may not have fully attained the heights and dreams by our founding fathers, we still have every reason to celebrate this historic day.
Every first of October is a time to reflect on the journey of our Nationhood, to rededicate ourselves to the task of Nation-building, and continue to work hard at building a formidable Nation in Africa and the world at large.
“This year also marks the 24th year since the birth of our Fourth Republic, our most successful democratic journey in the history of our nation.
“I am personally persuaded and confident that Nigeria is on an irreversible march to greatness economically, politically, socially and culturally he said.
“We must respect divergent opinions and respect the fact that the beauty of democracy lies in the fact that we will not all share the same ideology and political views but what is not negotiable, is a better country.”
As we celebrate our great Nation-Nigeria, may the joy and happiness of celebration be with us all.
