“We are working with government to ensure that those demands that require constitutional approval will be done by us expeditiously.
“We pray that this type of thing will not happen again. Those who are in governance and those who are out of governance, all have a role to play to ensure that this country moves forward.
“We are aware of the role the media can play, and we want to plead with you that in the discharge of your duty, you put Nigeria´s unity first,´´ Boroffice said.
