‘Why Nigeria is yet to realize its dreams’
The Muslim Community of Oyo State (MUSCOYS) has attributed the reasons why Nigeria is yet to realize its dreams to the long years of military rule, the Civil War crisis, the failure of past leaders to fix the country, lack of true internal democracy within the political class, corruption and non-patriotic nature of the citizenry.
In a statement signed by MUSCOYS Chairman and Secretary-General, Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni and Alhaji Mursiq Bidemi Siyanbade, the Oyo Muslim community expressed their belief that Nigeria’s journey to prosperity could only be achieved if the leadership and followership imbibe the spirit of accountability and sacrifice.
While felicitating with Nigerians as the country attain 55 years of nationhood, they called for a positive change that would engender a culture of prudence, diligence, honesty, sincerity, decency, transparency, selflessness and accountability in our polity.
They prayed for the country’s growth from strength to strength.
“Nigeria today should be better than yesterday. This is to give hope to those who had lost confidence in the project called ‘Nigeria’.
“To those who have lost hope in the ‘Nigeria Project’, let us renew our faith in Nigeria and the new leadership we have and recommit to the transformation of our Fatherland,” the statement further read in part.
