Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged Nigerians to engage in actions that will cement the bond of unity in the country.
He made the call on Friday in Asaba when Class 81 of the Nigeria Air Force School, Jos, visited him.
The Governor said the unity of the country was not negotiable and people should shun acts that could lead to distrust or crisis in the country.
“We are at a very difficult time in our nation and we are starting to hear the negative voices which are unfortunate and ought not to be.
“The negativity is growing continuously and we are beginning to become suspicious of one another, and it should not be so.
“I believe that with this type of association where each of you still relates with one another after all these years of leaving school, is something that we can build on.
“It will help to build the nation as it is based on unity and oneness which have to be projected in our nation, because in that strength of unity, we will be able to move our nation forward,” he said.
He enumerated some of the achievements of his administration, and said that the state was relatively peaceful because most of the youths were meaningfully engaged through the various job and wealth creation programmes of his administration.
The leader of the delegation, Mr Ayodeji Olusina, had thanked the Governor for appointing one of their members, Mr Chiedu Ebie, as Secretary to the State Government, adding that they were in Asaba for a reunion.
