The United State ambassador to Nigeria Mr W. Stuart Symington has said that whatever happens Nigerians have a way of figuring out ways to live together.
Ambassador Symington made this known Thursday night during the 241st American Independence Day Celebration in Abuja.
He went on to say that you can tell if you are a Nigerian if you can answer the question what do you like about Nigeria?
Whenever I meet a Nigerian, I ask, “What do you like the most about your country?” The invariable reply, from more than a thousand Nigerians, is “I like the Nigerian people.” I like our diversity, our resilience, our energy, our warmth, our spirit, our food…”
“Today, Nigeria is fortunate to have such leaders and citizens. Together they are dedicated to keeping Nigeria united and just and to ensuring every Nigerian is heard and taken into account and treated fairly.” He said
