He commended the growth of democracy as well as economy of Nigeria which he described as success against oscillating forces with a call for prayers and faith in the country.

According to him, “We have every reason to celebrate today. If not for any reason, it should be for the fact that Nigeria has survived and fared against all odds. We have survived the military, a civil war, political unrest among other oscillating phenomena militating our country’s unity.”

“While I congratulate fellow Nigerians on the 58th Independence Anniversary of our country, emphasis must be placed on the need for us to pray for the unity of our country. We must continually throw aside our differences and embrace actions that will engender collective development.” He stressed.
