“I want Nigerians to support and help the government to make Nigeria a better place.

“As we are celebrating our 61st independence anniversary, I want us to speak positive narratives for the betterment of our country.

“We do not need to be divided at this point, rather we should remain patient and support this present administration as it proffers solution to the current economic downturn and security challenges,” she said.

Similarly, Mr Gabriel Adeleye, the Chief Executive Officer, Aspire Foundation, advised Nigerians to pray for the country to surmount its current challenges.
