Nigeria @ 62: Atiku Says Nigeria will Rise Again

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, greeted Nigerians on the celebration of the nation’s 62nd Independence Day anniversary and promised that the country would rise once more.

In a message released in Abuja by his media office in honour of Nigeria’s 2022 Independence Day, the former vice president made this comment.

The commemoration of Nigeria’s Independence Day, according to Abubakar, should reinvigorate residents’ awareness of the need to strengthen their nation’s diversity and unity.

Following its independence 62 years ago, Nigeria, according to the PDP presidential contender, has come a long way while overcoming numerous difficulties.

“The democracy we have is the requisite antidote to our current challenges.

“Though Nigeria is beset with challenges that range from inadequacies of our economic plans to cover a large percentage of our people who live below the poverty line to security skirmishes that daily threaten the safety of lives and property of Nigerians, the root cause of these problems is traceable to the increasing lack of unity amongst us.

“However, I assure you that as one people and under the canopy of one country sharing in one future, we will surmount our challenges and enthrone the Nigeria of our dreams,” Abubakar said.

As Nigerians prepare for the general elections the following year, he pleaded with them all to prioritise the subject of fostering national cohesion.

“Nigerians should elect leaders who are individuals with proven track records of being protagonists of unity and peace.

“I believe that when we fix the issues that continue to compromise our national unity, we would invariably fix issues that upset our peace and security and subsequently create an environment that can encourage economic prosperity”, Abubakar said.

The PDP presidential candidate urged all of Nigeria’s allies in the foreign world to be optimistic about the nation because “as a people, we never give up.”

He urged all religious believers in the nation to continue pleading with God to maintain Nigeria as a peaceful, prosperous nation for the sake of all its citizens.
