Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the Ondo State acting Governor, has projected into the future and concluded that Nigeria would remain an indivisible entity irrespective of ethnic affiliation.
The Acting Governor stated this on Monday in his easter message entitled “Let The Spirit Of Love, Hope and Unity Be Our Watch West Word”.
Aiyedatiwa who became the Acting Governor a few days after the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, embarked on annual leave, said nothing could be achieved in an atmosphere of hate and acrimony.
He said, “ As our country prepares for the dawn of renewed hope, let’s allow this great show of love of Jesus Christ to lead our acts and deeds. We must see ourselves as one to allow the promise of God for our motherland to become fruitful.
“Nigeria is one indivisible entity. Our quest for a better and prosperous nation must only be fired with our resolve to be united and strengthen our sovereignty with love that is untainted.
“Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic group, religion and political affiliation, desire prosperity and development. But nothing tangible can be achieved in an atmosphere of hate and acrimony.
“Therefore, I urge us all to purge ourselves of unnecessary bickering and political brickbats; it is time to leverage on our differences as strength for a greater nation. Let’s be united to support and enjoy the fruit of the renewed hope.
“My dear people of Ondo State, I must also use this opportunity to enjoin us not to let our chords of togetherness be broken, as we have always demonstrated in all spheres. Let us not forget that the peace and development of our State, that we as the government are committed to, lie in the unity and love we show to one another.
