Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, made this known publicly on behalf of the Federal Government. He congratulated Nigerians on this occasion and advised Nigerians to support the present government in its efforts to ensure a United and prosperous Nation.
The Minister said any form of uproar that endangers the unity of the country should be avoided for the good of all, noting that Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if citizens love his or her neighbor and embrace the spirit of brotherliness.
In his remark, the Minister said;
“As we mark another Democracy Day in the history of our dear country, let us recognize the efforts of our founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria stays as one United and Indivisible Entity. No development can take place in a harsh environment.
With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honor each other and live together in peace and prosperity,”
He assured that with the efforts being put in place by the President’s Administration to secure the lives and property of the citizens and stabilize the economy, the country will continue to get better.
