#NigeriaAt59: Nigerians must be optimistic for greater things ― Lai
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed advised Nigerians to keep hope alive, insisting that the Buhari administration would continue to work to improve the welfare of Nigerians.
He said, “my message to Nigerians is to keep up hope; 59 years of independence in a country as diverse as Nigeria is not an easy thing but the good thing is that everybody is glad to be part on one united and prosperous Nigeria.
“And the administration will continue to work to ensure there is unity, security and that there is prosperity for all Nigeria and for everybody.
“The political class has its role to play; my advice is to the political class is that we should not overheat the polity; elections are over; we should all join hands to build the nation; the beauty of democracy is that every four years, you have the opportunity to decide who is going to be your leader; but once elections are over, everybody should join hands together to build the country because I believe that even those in opposition; they mean well for Nigeria; therefore, they should join hands with the government to build a united and prosperous Nigeria.”
