Despite the challenges befalling the country, Nigeria remains a potential world leader and the brightest hope of the black race, says the National Vice Chairman (South-South) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dan Osi Orbih.

Orbih was optimistic that the nation will eventually surmount the challenges it is currently being faced with.

Naija News reports that the politician in a statement dated Friday, December 31, 2021, listed insecurity, ethnic clashes, farmer/herder crisis, mass poverty among others as challenges that have become threats to Nigeria’s unity.

Orbih who addressed Nigerians in his New Year message said the march towards national development can only be sustained if Nigerians stay united and refuse to be distracted by the myriad of challenges currently facing the country.

He also urged citizens to stay focused on the opportunities that lay ahead, arguing that Nigeria, given its enormous resources, remains “a potentially world leader and the brightest hope of the black race.”

Orbih enjoined Nigerians across every divide to see themselves as one and unite to build a prosperous nation founded on justice, equity and fairness, Naija News reports.

Orbih’s New Year Message to Nigerians read partly: “I join millions of countrymen to usher Nigeria into the new year, 2022. No doubt, the preceding year had seen our dear country muddle through a lot of challenges ranging from rising insecurity, ethnic clashes, farmer/herder crisis, mass poverty and threats to its unity.

It is obvious that most of our individual aspirations and, indeed, collective desires as a country were scarcely met, owning largely to gaps in quality leadership.

“These distractions are not insurmountable. I do not doubt in my mind that the path to the sustained development of Nigeria lies in strengthening its unity which fabrics have been torn apart by rudderless leadership.

“We must see the strength in our diversity. I urge Nigerians across every divide to see themselves as one and unite to build a prosperous nation founded on justice, equity and fairness.”

“God has blessed our country with enormous human and material resources. These endowments place Nigeria as a potential world leader and the brightest hope of the black race. We must stay focused on the opportunities that lay ahead and prepare ourselves to ride on the hope of a brighter and prosperous new year,” the statement added.
