Notwithstanding the myriad challenges confronting us as a nation and our present-day experience, we cannot afford to give up on the Nigeria of our dreams – a Nigeria where we all live in peace and harmony, with tremendous economic growth under stable and purposeful leadership.
We must, therefore, introspect, retune our thinking deliberately and recalibrate our steps and actions. We must redirect our minds by focusing on the positive – our strengths and achievements – and build on them towards achieving a just and prosperous society.
We must refuse to be overwhelmed by our negative experiences but contribute from our individual corners towards realizing the fullness of our immense potential, making Nigeria the great nation it is. We must move Nigeria from a great nation potentially to a great country experientially.
We must rise above all prejudices, de-emphasize the things that separate us and embrace the things that unite us. This is only possible when we allow our humanity and the love of God in our hearts to find expression as we relate with each other as a people. This must be our mindset and posture as we work and keep hope alive.
As members of the legal profession, we must never forget that our primary call is to live for the direction of our people and advance the cause of our dear nation, Nigeria. We are blessed with excellent human resources populated by vibrant, brilliant, energetic, innovative, and resourceful youth. We must champion Nigeria’s recovery, reformation, and repositioning together. A NEW NIGERIA IS POSSIBLE.
On this note, I wish all Nigerians an incredible 63rd Independence Day Anniversary.
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!!
