President Bola Tinubu, represented by George Akume, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, urged Nigerians to endure the hardships resulting from the removal of fuel subsidy, emphasizing it as a necessary sacrifice for a better future.
Speaking at the book launch of “Brutally Frank,” an autobiography of elder statesman Edwin Clark, held in Abuja, the president emphasized the importance of unity and called on traditional leaders and politicians to work together towards a stronger and more united nation.
He stressed the need for collective efforts to harness Nigeria’s diversity for the country’s unity and progress.
His words: “We are greater when we are introduced as Nigerians than when we are introduced on the basis of ethnicity.
“This country is structurally complex and structurally difficult but can never be difficult to manage.
“Our plurality, our diverse cultures, languages, and religion, constitute the source of our strength.
“Since we came in, we have demonstrated enough for the management of this diversity through the appointment of persons, citizens into key, strategic positions,” Mr Tinubu said.
