The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, ruled out the possibility of Nigeria disintegration.
The former Governor of Lagos State called on youths in the country to work together to solve the challenges affecting Nigeria.
Tinubu while speaking at a democracy lecture organized by the Nigerian Youth Congress said Nigeria currently sits at a crucial junction amid various challenges affecting the progress of the country.
Tinubu was represented by James Faleke at the lecture with the theme “Nigerian Democratic System and Good Governance: The Journey So Far,” held on Thursday in Abuja.
He said, “Nigeria sits at a crucial junction. Do we advance by doing what is right, or do we stagnate by settling for what is easy?”
“Our nation’s journey is one of the continuous struggles. We have struggled many times, yet never shall we fall. We are Nigerians and shall remain so.”
“Of course, much work needs to be done. But it is time to recognize the points at which we fight ourselves. It demands further reforms and evolution.”
“We need to continue to transform and improve so that we perfect good and effective governance in Nigeria for all citizens.”
“Our youths are the engine by which our future and protection will be powered. Our journey to date will be further defined by your efforts and actions.”
“This journey should not and cannot be a destructive process. We must manage the necessary change in a peaceful and democratic manner and ensure the continued unity of our nation, its people, and collective potential.”
“To perfect good and effective government is not going to come solely from the Nigerian elites. It will virtually come from the youths.”
“This is not a time for you to falter. It’s time for you to stand up and help push this great nation forward. It is time for Nigeria to evolve.”
