On the occasion of 53d Independence Day of Nigeria, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, and Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, have described conflicts and terrorism as serious setbacks for the development of the country, and called to unite to overcome them.

amaechiblasts1Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has called terrorism and other criminal activities, including bad governance, a serious setback to the development of Nigeria. He said this in a message issued in Osogbo on Monday to commemorate the 53rd Independence anniversary of Nigeria.

“Our efforts at nation-building are being affronted by manifold crises of under-development – bad governance, poor planning, industrial collapse, decay of basic infrastructure, socio-economic backwardness, political instability, insecurity, widespread poverty, and terrorism, among many other woes,” Aregbesola said, expanding the list of problems.

However, he said, these setbacks “do not amount to any permanent incapacity” for the country do develop further; they are “necessary but temporary impediments along the path to progress,” Governor added.

It turn, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, called for national cohesion and true democracy as the country marks its 53rd anniversary.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, David Iyofor, Amaechi stated democracy could only thrive when the people lived in peace and unity with leaders showing true leadership and statesmanship in line with democratic tenets.

“No democracy can grow in the face of unending conflicts and in the midst of impunity. Nigeria is one country in spite of our varying cultures, religion and ethnic nationalities; and we can only succeed as a nation if we stand united.

  1. Are the Governors sincere with their submissions? Is it no Amaechi that is promoting terrorism in Rivers State? He should live by the words he preached
