Ihedioha, who was speaking as Nigeria marked this year’s Democracy Day, commended Nigerians for their patience and resilience in preserving the unity and integrity of the nation.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Oke Epia, the Deputy Speaker said that Nigerians had continually been tasked to make sacrifices for the country, adding that they had been so responsive and understanding.
“They (citizens) deserve commendation and encouragement from leaders and those in authority,” the statement said.
Ihedioha urged leaders to double their effort in delivering good life to the people and to leave legacies, which generations to come would be proud of.
He called for all hands to be on deck to move the country forward at all times. (NAN)
