Abiodun made the call in his remarks at a ceremony marking the 2021 June 12 Democracy Day at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.
“We should think Nigerian and not sectarian. We should not limit that mandate and success to 1993.
“However, we must also acknowledge that, like every human endeavour and system, our democracy is not perfect. Our democracy is still a work in progress.
“MKO Abiola and his mandate should serve as a reminder to all of us that we are stronger together as a nation.
The governor reiterated that June 12 represented what would strengthen the country’s unity, indivisibility and oneness.
“As we celebrate June 12, we must also not forget to pay tributes to the heroes of the struggle for the actualisation of June 12 after the annulment of that election.
“Some may wonder why we take so much interest in the unity of Nigeria.“With the contributions of our heroes past in Ogun, and some of them still living, perhaps more than any other state, we have greater stake in the unity of Nigeria,” he said.
Abiodun reiterated the commitment of his administration toward ensuring security of lives and property in every part of the state.
He said that no part of the state would be a safe haven for suspected criminals and criminality in whatever form or guise. (NAN)
