59th independence: Wase Congratulates Nigerians, calls for unity, peace and progress
Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase , has congratulated Nigerians on the occasion of the nation’s 59th independence anniversary.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Umar Muhammad Puma, Wase urged Nigerians to support the government at all levels, saying the task of nation-building requires the contribution of every citizen.
He called on Nigerians to improve the way they relate to one another, adding that there is the urgent need for the people to begin to see themselves first as Nigerians, rather than individual ethnic or sectional groups or the other.
“The future of the country lies in its ability to achieve unity and peace, and would be much easier to attain if leaders at all levels allow justice and fair play to govern their actions.
He stated that when people believe in the fairness of their leaders, they would be ready to do everything within their power to protect their fatherland.
The Deputy Speaker while maintaining that the future of the country is bright, appealed to groups that are aggrieved in one way or the other and espousing separatist sentiments, to drop their agitation and take advantage of the improving political climate in the country, to seek accommodation in the larger united national community that is fast unfolding.
