Yobe state Governor and chairman APC Caretaker/Extraordinary convention planning committee, Mai Mala Buni, has urged Nigerians to explore more areas that unite the country for a prosperous future.
In a statement released by the DG Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed, the Governor, while making remarks at a colloquium organized in honour of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s 69th birthday anniversary on Monday said, “this is a colloquium with a difference because, the celebration of Tinubu’s birthday in Kano symbolises the unity in diversity we have in the country that can be strengthened for a better Nigeria.
“The people gathered here today are coming from different ethnic, religious, cultural and political backgrounds but share a common faith in the unity and future of Nigeria.”
“This gives Nigerians and the country a fresh hope for the future, a hope for prosperity and a hope for more unity in diversity,” Buni said.
The chairman APC Caretaker/Extraordinary convention committee described Tinubu as a great leader, a true democrat, a statesman and a philanthropist with great concern for the future of Nigeria.
He commended the government and people of Kano State for showing exemplary support for a united Nigeria by hosting the colloquium at a time when some groups are challenging the country’s unity.
Buni advocated for increased support to the Buhari administration to overcome security and other challenges facing the country.
“The task of nation-building is a collective responsibility and we should support the government to achieve this and improve the lives of Nigerians,” Buni said.
