Independence Day: Goodwill Messages from Presidential Candidates

Leading presidential candidates on Saturday reiterated the need to fix Nigeria as the country celebrates its 62nd Independence Day Anniversary.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party made this known in separate statements.

According to the APC Presidential hopeful, the 2022 Independence Day Anniversary is a time for all Nigerians to recommit themselves to unity.

“Indeed, we have come a long way from 1960 when we gained independence. We have walked far since then. Still, the best of our national journey lies before and not behind us. Since 1999, our country has experienced 23 years of uninterrupted democracy. While we have firmly established democracy as our way of governance, we still have work to do in perfecting our form of governance such that government will always and completely be for, of, by and because of the people. That our people live in the dignity afforded by prosperity, justice, freedom and an unyielding belief in our capacity to overcome any obstacle was what compelled our founders to strive for the independence we now enjoy”.

“This anniversary of our independence offers us the opportunity to take stock of how far we have come as a nation and how far we must go to achieve a better nation.

“Let us commit ourselves to Nigeria’s unity as well as to our collective improvement. In unity, we must see each other as brothers and sisters regardless of our ethnic, religious or regional diversity,” the former governor of Lagos State noted.

“As the nation heads toward the coming election, may we all eschew violence and recourse to divisive, incendiary politics that pull against the fabric of national unity and concord.”

On his part, Atiku said, “The celebration of Nigeria’s Independence Day is a solemn reminder that we must fix the issues that continue to compromise our national unity. And when we do this, we would invariably fix issues that upset our peace and security and subsequently create an environment that can encourage economic prosperity.”

While Obi said many Nigerians are frustrated and tired of the many years of leadership failure.

He, however, expressed optimism that Nigeria has the hope of unfettered development, growth, greatness and dreams of infinite possibilities.

“We must rescue and turn our country around. It is our challenge and our duty…We are convinced that we can build the New Nigeria of our dreams.

“Fellow Nigerians, let us take back our nation from those who have perfected State Capture and build a better society for ourselves and our children. God bless you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the LP presidential candidate stated.
