Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr. Dimeji Bankole, has enjoined Nigerians to remain committed and continue to display those virtues that have kept the nation together despite our diverse cultural, ethnic, religious and political backgrounds.
Specifically, he charged Nigerians to continue to display love for one another and our dear country Nigeria. â€œTrue patriotism and brotherly love are the main ingredients we need as a people to continue to live together as one big family. It is only in the atmosphere of peace can we attain greatness and ultimately become the envy of other nations,” Bankole said.
In his New Year message signed by his Special Adviser (Media) Mr. Ebomhiana Musa, Bankole also enjoined Nigerians to see themselves as one anotherâ€™s brother,Â adding that it is the basis of a united and prosperous nation.
â€œAs we enter the year 2010, being the golden year anniversary of our country, I urged all religious faiths to pray fervently more than ever before for the leaders at all levels for Allahâ€™s guidance and protectionâ€ Bankole said.
