This he said while in an occasion organised to mark Nigeria’s 60th anniversary at the Kano Pillars Stadium, Kano.

According to him, Nigerians require one another’s help so as to survive, adding that they should focus on making the country strong.

“Reflecting on our journey in the last 60 years as a nation, there is every reason to sing songs and praises to Almighty Allah, who in his infinite mercies, has kept us together, despite our challenges.
