Ex-Envoy, Oni Greets Nigerians


The Deputy National Chairman of All Progressives Congress and a former Ekiti State Governor , Chief Segun Oni , has charged Nigerians to channel their resourcefulness and creativity towards making the country harness its potentials ..

Oni , in a congratulatory message to Nigerians on the 57 th Independence anniversary signed by his media aide, Mr. Steve Alabi, said the country could only be great as desired if all its citizens worked together .

“ At 57 , Nigeria is no longer a nation at infancy . With the natural resources God has abundantly blessed us with and the immense intellectual prowess of our people , we are certainly capable of being among the top twenty countries in the world and the leading nation in Africa, ” Oni said.

He hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for moving Nigeria from the path of corruption and bad leadership to a path of honest leadership and economic recovery .

“ The signs are there for all to see. Gone are the days when crass materialism governed public conduct with the attendant consequences of debasement of leadership , governance , social and moral values. ”

In a related development , a former Nigerian High Commissioner to Canada, Dare Bejide, and an APC governorship aspirant , Kola Alabi, congratulated Nigerians and the people of Ekiti State on the occasion of the 57 th independence anniversary of Nigeria.

Bejide, a Peoples Democratic Party’ s governorship aspirant in Ekiti , said the occasion presented the country yet another opportunity to take stock of its journey as a nation with a view to putting it on a steady course of progress and development .

While congratulating Ekiti State on its 21 st anniversary , he urged the people to seize the opportunity to reflect on how far the aspirations for its creation had been realised .

According to him, the 2018 governorship election in the state provides another opportunity for people to make a choice for progress and transformation of the state by electing a credible and man of integrity with the vision and mission of taking the state to great and enviable heights .

Alabi in his message through the Director General of his Campaign Organisation , Toba Daramola, urged the people not to relent in their prayers for the unity and progress of the state in particular and the nation at large .

Ekiti , according to him, can do much better with the available resources if the state is handled by a visionary leader .

Alabi thanked those who worked for the realisation of the Ekiti dream but added that much work was still left undone, assuring them that his quest was to bridge the gap .
