As the nation marks her 58th independence anniversary, Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that there is light at the end of the tunnel for the nation.
The governor said the time has come for Nigerians to begin a new song of progress, love and talk less about the country’s shortcomings and urged Nigerians to discuss the successes of the country at 58 and what else could be done to move the nation forward.
He stated that all that the nation needs at this moment is unity of purpose among Nigerians.
The governor equally explained that today’s leaders will soon hand over the nation to the younger ones and where today’s leaders have failed as their parents, the younger ones cannot afford to fail, but must stand firm not to repeat the mistakes of their fathers, adding that Nigeria is on the path of greatness.
He noted that the fact that the country had remained one after 58 years inspite of all the ethnic and religious claims and counter-claims by the various sections of the country calls for celebration on the part of all and sundry.
