The chairman of Nigeria’s Governors’ Forum (NGF), Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, yesterday said Nigeria’s march to greatness is on course and on stronger footing, regardless of its own share of the challenges of nation building that every society goes through.
AbdulRazaq, in a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, congratulated Nigerians on the country’s 63rd independence anniversary.
“What is certain is that the country has always emerged stronger from any of its challenges and the current ones, whatever their magnitude or shades, will not be an exception.
“I congratulate Mr. President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the rest of the country on this occasion. We thank God for His mercies on our country, and commend all the patriots who have remained true to the dream of a greater, united Nigeria at all turns of our history.
“I join Mr. President, leadership of the other arms of government, and all thought leaders to call on Nigerians to remain united and committed to collective good. Together, we’ll build in the successes of the past years and break new grounds in political maturity and inclusiveness, economic growth, and collective prosperity,” the governor said.
