My Wishes For Nigeria’ – Acting President, Osinbajo

By | On June 24, 2017 (4 weeks ago)

The Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has revealed his wishes for Nigeria, saying the people if united can build a new nation.

 

Osinbajo spoke as Special Guest of Honour at

the graduation of the 2017 class of Senior

Course 39 of the Armed Forces Command &

Staff College, Jaji.

 

His words: “We can build a new nation; a new

nation built on trust, consensus and love for

one another and love for our country is

possible.

 

“A nation where the rulers do not steal the

commonwealth, where every Nigerian is safe

to live and work, where the State takes

responsibility for the security of each and

every Nigerian, where the State knows every

Nigerian by name and can find and locate

each one of us.
“A Nigeria where the Igbo or Ijaw man can

live peacefully in Sokoto, and the Fulani man

can live peacefully in the Niger Delta.”
The Acting President insisted that the elite

were largely to be blamed for the festering

negative narratives.
“I would like to emphasize the fact that this

was essentially an elite phenomenon, unity

and disunity are promoted by the elite which

the vast majority of the Nigerian people are

only later conscripted.
“While we must remain irrevocably committed

to freedom of expression and the tenets of a

free press, we must draw the line between

freedom that conduces to healthy democracy

and that which threatens and endangers the

entire democratic enterprise . It is an

important balance, that we must strike.
Failure in any way will be tragic”, he said.
He also observed that the problem was

exacerbated by the influence of the internet

and hate media emphasizing that “today a

great deal of the threats facing Nigeria are

being nurtured and cultivated in the vast

spaces of the Internet.
“The rumblings of secession, the dangerous

quit ultimatums to ethnic groups, the radio

stations and blogs that spew divisive speech

and exploit our fault lines; all of these are

now to be found online.
“The battle is not just to defeat the terrorists,

the greater battle is to defeat the ideology

and mindset that feeds the madness and to

cut off its oxygen, money and publicity.
“The truth is that our nation and national unity

is worth preserving and protecting. We are the

preeminent power in Africa today in terms of

population, size of our markets , naturl resources and economy.
“We are a factor in the geopolitics of the

world, no one can ignore a nation state that is

home to one in every four black persons.
Smaller is weaker not stronger today.”
Osinbajo charged the nation to rise above

unproductive ethnic and religious sentiments.
He added, “We must develop the emotional

intelligence required to cope and adapt in a

swiftly and constantly changing world.
“We must adopt a global mindset, that seeks

to learn from the experiences of other

countries, far and near, so that we do not

waste valuable time repeating mistakes that

we should have learned from and learned to

avoid”.
