Sokoto – Alhaji Muktari Mapia, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto State has urged Nigerians to continue to live in peace with one another to ensure the sustenance of democracy in the country.
Mapia said in Sokoto on Tuesday that it was only through peaceful coexistence that the country could achieve the desired development.
“No country can achieve any meaningful development without peace; peaceful coexistence paves the way for economic growth and development, as well as the political stability of a country,” he said.
According to Mapia, harmonious working relationship among Nigerians, irrespective of religious and political affiliations, would enable the nation to achieve greatness.
He called on Nigerians to support the current administration’s effort in the fight against corruption, insurgency, cattle rustling, militancy and banditry.
He said the support was necessary, especially in the area of providing the necessary intelligence reports that could assist security personnel to track down all those involved in criminal activities.
“Security is very important as it will enable the three tiers of government to implement their various development and people-oriented programmes.
” Nigerians must imbibe the culture of assisting our security personnel with vital information that can help in ending the activities of militants, cattle rustlers, insurgents and kidnappers,” he said.
