The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Muhammed Idris, has called for collective unity amongst people to achieve the dividend of democracy. He said democracy is nothing if it doesn’t bring progress, development, and unity among the people.

Idriss stated this during a courtesy visit by the APC North-Central Zone on Thursday.

“It was for this reason that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is constantly promoting the dual concepts of unity and economic prosperity to our people; as the chief image maker of Nigeria, that is the message I am also disseminating.” Idris said this, noting the need for Nigerians to conduct some soul-searching.

“National re-orientation is at the heart of the change and hope that we all desire for this country; each one of us has the responsibility to recover his steps and do the right thing,” he said, calling on the party members to unite and engage more so that they can achieve great things for the country.

Idris also stated the need for the party to galvanise people towards a common understanding and shared vision for what our country should be, and this could be achieved through the party machinery across all levels.

Meanwhile, the National Vice Chairman of the APC North Central, Bawa Rijau, on behalf of the National Working Committee of the APC, and Zonal Executives, congratulated the Minister on his well-deserved appointment.

Rijau applauds President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for appointing one of their own to this important position, noting this as a clear indication that the president appreciated the role Alhaji Idris played during the campaign.
