Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, has urged Nigerians to preserve their country despite the continuous acute leadership failure and gross power abuse in the county.
The former senator and critic made this known in a tweet on Thursday, October 1, in the spotlight of celebration of Nigeria at 60.
Sani, however, said youths can get angry at the government and hold those abusing political power to ransom and account.
He further added that Nigerians, with collective interest and will, can change failure and corruption-ridden government and create the country of their dreams.
Sani warned against "demolishing" Nigerians because of setbacks occasioned by bad governance.
In his words:
"Be Angry with your Government but cherish and preserve your country; you own your country, you can change your Government to create the Country of your dream; you don’t demolish your house because your home is bad."
Meanwhile, minister of transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has raised the hope of Nigerians on good governance, saying "we can make it work" despite various challenges.
The minister, who noted that Nigeria is a country of multiple diversities, stated that Nigerians are unique people in a great nation.
He urged Nigerians to join hands together and build the nation of their dreams.
"Nigeria! We are one people, a great nation, unique in our diversity and blessed with great human and natural resources. Yes, we have challenges like every nation, but we can make it work. Let’s join hands to build the Flag of Nigeria we want."
