From Joseph Obukata, Warri
The All Progressive Congress (APC) Delta Central Senatorial Candidate, Chief Ede Dafinone, has enjoined Nigerians to remain steadfast and not to despair as things will surely get better.
Dafinone who spoke while felicitating with the Urhobo Nation, Deltans and Nigerians at large as the country marks its 62nd Independent Anniversary, harped on the need for Nigerians to eschew violence and learn how to tolerate one another as no nation can grow or develop without peace.
The APC senatorial hopeful noted the Independence Anniversary provides ‘us with another opportunity to look inwards and re-evaluate our journey so far as a nation, and then project into the future on how we can collectively work together to build the nation of our dreams’.
The renowned Chartered Accountant while felicitating with President Muhammadu Buhari and the people of Delta Central senatorial district on the 62nd Independence anniversary, urged Nigerians irrespective of creed and religion to continue to live together in harmony, love and peace.
Dafinone noted that Nigeria has the potential to achieve greatness, saying that our stable democracy has offered us the opportunity to harness our abundant resources for the good of all. Citizens should therefore, take more than a passive interest in governance by electing credible leaders in the 2023 general elections.
“There is no doubt that our democracy has come of age. Today, we have a federal government that is committed to our national rebirth; tackling corruption and rebuilding our infrastructure. This is with a view to building a brighter future for the coming generations.
“As we celebrate this remarkable day, I urge all Delta Central residents to continue to support the APC-led federal government as we work towards restoring the vision of our founding fathers.
“I salute you all and urge all of you to remain patriotic and law-abiding citizens,” he said.
