Nigeria at 62: United Nigeria is destiny for greatness – Gov. Lalong

By Gabriel Ewawoche

The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has expressed hope that Nigeria is heading for greatness through one united Nigeria, despite difficulties and challenges

Makut Simon Macham, Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Governor of Plateau State in a statement, said a very prosperous Nigeria is possible if all citizens put aside their personal interests and work for the common good in a united manner.

He said it is important that we do not allow the challenges of the moment to stop us from highlighting and thanking God for the tremendous successes we have achieved over the years.

He paid special tribute to those who fought for independence, those who nurtured it and those doing their best to sustain it, adding that Nigerians must continue to do their best to ensure that the sacrifices of their forbears do not go in vain.

He said, ”Nigeria is a great nation with abundant human and material resources comparable to only very few countries in the world and as such, there is the need to ensure that the resources of the nation are harvested and utilised efficiently for the good of all rather than for the benefit of a few.

He challenged those in power to always put the interest of the citizens first and shun any action that will dwindle hope, faith and patriotism among the followers, as it can lead to despondency and add to the problems militating against nation building.

While congratulating President Muhammadu Buhari and all Nigerians for commemorating another independence anniversary, Governor Lalong prayed that the forthcoming democratic transition will go smoothly and consolidate the nation’s achievements in a civilian nation
