The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos-West Senatorial District Candidate, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has felicitated President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians on the occasion of 62nd Independence Day Anniversary.
Dr. Adebule said the Independence Day affords Nigerians to annually introspect into how far the country has gone since gaining independence from the British government and set agenda to move forward.
She admitted that Nigeria still has a long way to go to be among the comity of highly industrialized nations, however, we are on the path to greatness.
She said: “The challenges facing the country are not insurmountable if every Nigerian decides to be the change he/she wants to see in the country.
“The developed nations we are looking up to have also passed through the phase of underdevelopment which we are presently going through and if they surmounted those challenges; With the indomitable spirit of Nigerians, it is certain we will also overcome our challenges and emerge a stronger, more prosperous and united nation we are destined to be”.
She called on Nigerians to be patient and pray for the emergence of leaders that would turn the country round for the better in the 2023 general elections.
She said: “Nigeria is a great country and we as citizens are proud to call Nigeria our home. We have no other country to call our own. Let’s celebrate our country and focus on those things that brings us together rather than those that divides us.
“The political campaign season has started and we are approaching the elections, it is important for us to conduct ourselves with decorum and shun any invitation to violence, hate speech and dissemination of fake news. We can only develop our nation in an atmosphere of peace, love and harmony.”
