Similarly, Ondo State governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko has identified the need for more perseverance and determination from Nigerians to ensure the unity of the nation in the face of the current economic and security challenges threatening its unity.
He implored all to be resolute in ensuring the nation remains an indivisible one in the face of the numerous challenges that have come to test the people’s will to remain united.
He said the political class and the people have the responsibiliites to make the system work.Meanwhile, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the last election, has advised government on how to achieve economic prosperity in the coming year.
In his New Year message, Isiaka urged Nigerians to be more concerned about how government runs the economy, as passiveness will not push government to implement fiscal policies that can lead to economic boom.
He said indicators are not showing promises of a better economy in the New Year, because government has not done what it ought to do to bring the country out of economic doldrums.
