Oyogist has learned that the governor of Delta State, Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa has said Nigeria will become a better nation and able to harness its untapped resources if the people become more united.
The governor said the endowments and resources of the country could not be harnessed and put to full economic use without unity.
He further said that unity was at the heart of progress, sustainable development and wealth, adding that unity would help Nigeria to harness untapped resources.
“It will create a place called home for our young generation, put Nigeria on global stage for good reasons and inspire a spirit of greatness.
“Nigeria needs unity today and always. We can become a better nation if we work together.“From all indications, bad governance, ethno-religious conflicts and lack of faith in the electoral process, are major causes of disunity in the country.
“The sad reality is that we seem to derive more comfort, protection and security from our ethnic identity.“The concept of one Nigeria, therefore, is still just a theory. Another factor responsible for our current disunity is the lack of political will to devise a Constitution that supports true federalism,” he said.
