Alhaji Muktari Mapia, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto State, on Friday told Nigerians to shun religious sentiments and work towards building a stronger and vibrant nation.
Mapia gave the message in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto.
He said, “Nigerians, irrespective of religious and political differences, must unite towards achieving the set objectives for the nation’s growth.
“We must be happy and count ourselves lucky that our nation is blessed with abundant mineral and human resources capable of taking the nation to greater heights.
“I want to appeal to all Nigerians, irrespective of our cultural and tribal sentiments, to collectively work towards ensuring sustainable peace and unity.
“All we need are sound economic policies that would pave the way forward for Nigeria”, he said.
He called on the Federal Government to come out with realistic ideas that would revamp the nation’s ailing companies.
The APC leader said that with adequate power supply, foreigners would come and invest in the country. (NAN)
