Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day: Calls for Economic Unity

On the occasion of Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day celebration, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) extended its congratulations to Nigerians while calling on the Federal Government to prioritize the stabilization of the economy. In a statement, CAN expressed concern over the recent depreciation of the Naira against major world currencies, particularly the US Dollar, and highlighted its adverse effects on Nigerians. Archbishop Daniel Okoh, the President of CAN, also emphasized the need to combat terrorism and banditry in Nigeria.

Former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, joined in congratulating Nigerians on Independence Day, encouraging them to maintain hope and focus on the positive aspects of life. Saraki expressed his belief that there is “light at the end of the tunnel.”

Ireti Kingibe, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Women Affairs, advised Nigerians to leverage the country’s large population to address its challenges, drawing parallels with China and India’s success in harnessing their populations for development.

Governor Dikko Radda of Katsina State described Nigeria as a “beautiful land destined for unprecedented greatness” and expressed optimism about the country’s potential for greatness despite its current challenges.

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, who also chairs the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, emphasized that Nigeria’s march to greatness remains on course despite the challenges faced during the nation-building process.

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State called on Nigerians to honor the sacrifices made by the country’s founding fathers and heroes and work towards unity, justice, and progress.

Governor Ahmed Aliyu of Sokoto State urged Nigerians to prioritize patriotism and be prepared to make sacrifices for the nation’s progress.

Governor Mohammed Bago of Niger State congratulated Nigerians and assured them of transformation under his leadership, encouraging reflection on the nation’s journey.

The Prelate of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, His Eminence Ekpenyong Akpanika, urged Nigerians to maintain faith in the country and avoid actions that could cause tension and anarchy.

As Nigeria marks its Independence Day, these calls from various leaders reflect the nation’s aspirations for economic stability, unity, and progress amidst its challenges.
