Oko­rocha urges sup­port for Buhari

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Johnkennedy Uzoma, Ow­erri

Politi­cians in the coun­try have been ad­vised to work with Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to take the coun­try to an en­vi­able height.

Oko­rocha spoke yesterday in his ad­dress to mark the 55th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary of the na­tion at a cer­e­mony in Ow­erri.

He said: “Now that po­lit­i­cal cam­paigns are over, politi­cians ir­re­spec­tive of their par­ties should rally round Pres­i­dent Buhari to suc­ceed”.

He stressed the need to celebrate Nige­ria de­spite the se­cu­rity chal­lenges in the coun­try and ap­pealed to the youth to be proud of their coun­try, adding that God had blessed Nige­ria and would not aban­don her.

Oko­rocha blamed the in­abil­ity of the coun­try to progress rapidly on some past lead­ers’ lack of vi­sion, but as­sured that with Buhari, things must change. He paid trib­ute to the found­ing fathers of the coun­try, and urged Nige­ri­ans to con­tinue to pray for her growth.
