A front line governorship aspirant of the All progressive Congress, Delta State and 1st Deputy President general of Urhobo Progress Union has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians on the commemoration of the country’s 57th independence on October 1, 2017.
In a message made available to whistleblowers through his Director of Media and communication Comrade Sanco Ese, he said “it is time for us as a nation to chart a new beginning that will lead us into prosperity and advancement in all spheres of human endeavors having being immensely blessed by God with rich human and natural assets which makes us the envy of all nations”.
Chief Okotie in his message said “it is evident that since Nigeria’s independence in 1960, the nation has passed through different phases like Boko haram, Militancy, religious and ethnic violence and threat of secession with varying consequences. However, the best way we can honour the founding fathers and pillars of Nigeria, is to strengthen our unity whilst celebrating our diversity. We must pursue economic growth, political stability and other democratic principles for the benefit of all Nigerians”.
Chief Osiobe Okotie called on our leaders and Nigerians, to dedicate ourselves to ensuring a just and equitable society. “We must build a Nigeria for all, not a Nigeria for the few. We must bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. We must also renew our commitment to sustainable economic growth”.
He also advised that all hands must be on deck to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s effort towards ensuring security for all and effectively tackle corruption while emphasising on the need for Patriotism and selfless service to the nation to be our watchwords.
Speaking further, he called on Deltans not to loose hope but commit the numerous challenges bedevilling the state to the hands of God as 2019 will be a decisive year to enthrone good and purposeful leadership in the State. “It is clear that there is nothing to celebrate in Delta state, this should be a time for sober reflection on how we can turn the dwindling fortune and intractable waste of our collective patrimony on the later of incompetence and corrupt leadership of this present administration.
He urge Nigerians to pray and have faith in this Buhari led administration.
According to him “I see a bright future ahead of us as a State and nation.I therefore urge you all to remain resolute and committed in the Nigerian project, if we have passed through various challenges together as a nation and yet still remains one indivisible entity, I assure you today confidently that the sky is indeed bright for us as a nation.
God bless Deltans
God bless the Federal republic of Nigeria.
God bless PMB
