Nigerians Should Learn To Be United Like Politicians – Gov Yahaya Bello

Published

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has called on Nigerians to embrace the spirit of unity as exhibited by politicians in the country.

Bello who noted that despite the difference in ideology and belief by politicians, they always avoid fights among themselves, called on Nigerians to always learn to live above their differences.

He spoke on Wednesday in Abuja when he played host to members of the ex-Agitators Forum from the Niger Delta on a solidarity visit to him.

In his words, “I do not think you have ever seen our leaders exchanging blows during our meetings. We, as elites, are united, some only create the fights for you, and you fight yourselves. God forbid, I will not belong to that.”

He noted many factors such as ethnic, religious, and political views may want to keep Nigerians apart but citizens of the country must put national interests first and above every other consideration.

He said; “Let us come together as Nigerians, whether you are from Niger-Delta, whether you are from East, North, West, South, or not, let us come together.

“Enough of this divide and rule, enough of this ethnic sentiment, enough of these religious sentiments.

“The time has come to produce the next leaders across the board; leadership at top levels comprising of all these ethnic groups and religions.”

He also urged Nigerian youths to be wary of selfish politicians, “who do not have the interest of Nigeria at heart to use these sentiments to divide us and take our resources away, and crumbs are thrown at us.

“Nigeria is blessed; all it takes is good leadership to harness these blessings”

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday disclosed that he would convince Nigerians that he means well for the citizens.

According to the president during an interview on Arise TV said the Northwest, Southwest, Southeast needs progress.

President Buhari further stated that he would return to his farm at the end of his governance in 2023.
