As Nigeria marks its 61st Independence Anniversary, the Chairman Northern Speakers Forum, Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Ibrahim Zailani has urged all parts of the country to be united as they were before gaining Independence in 1960.
He gave the charge in a statement signed by his SA Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani, in a message for Nigeria’s Independence Anniversary, celebrated annually on October 1st.
“Nigeria is a blessed land that is yet to reach it’s full potentials as a result of perceived differences.
“Let us come together as one and build the country of our dreams like we did before gaining Independence from Britain on October 1, 1960,” he said.
The Chairman Northern Speakers Forum congratulated President Muhammdu Buhari, Governor Nasir El-Rufai and all Nigerians for witnessing another Independence Day Anniversary.
“We are all happy to be counted among the living as our dear country Nigeria, marks its 61st anniversary of nationhood.
“We have gone through trying times, including a Civil War but our resolve to remain together as brothers with a shared destiny has kept us together.
“We must savour these bonds that keep us together and work towards ensuring a peaceful, prosperous and united Nigeria, which is the best legacy we can bequeath to our generations yet unborn,” he said.
Zailani lamented that the country is going through its worst time in history, with marauding criminal gangs endangering lives of citizens in almost every part of the country.
He tasked all Nigerians to be patriotic and pray for an end to Insecurity.
