SGF reminds Nigeria of Unity, condemns hatred, bigotry and violence

The   Secretary   to   the   Government   of   the   Federation (SGF), Boss   Mustapha   has said that the recent killings in Benue, Taraba and some parts of the country is a threat to the nation.

“The Nigeria I know”.

“The  Nigeria  we used to  live  in  devoid  of divisiveness, violence and crises, is now being bedeviled with ugly trends and events. If we do not rise with urgency, we will not bequeath that Nigeria to our children and posterity to come, said Mustapha at a gathering over the week-end.

“Over the years, we have allowed the culture of divisiveness to grow in our midst so much that friendship, interacting and relating with others, is now informed and conditioned by what tribe or religion one belongs to”.

Mustapha who was speaking aftermath of the recent killings in parts of Benue and Taraba states,  noted that Nigerians in the past lived together devoid  of  divisiveness, violence and crises, warning that if not curtailed the future generation will inherit a troubled country.

The SGF pleaded with  Nigerians from different strata to eschew all divisive tendencies and embrace the spirit of oneness so as to bequeath the Nigeria we used to know to our children and to the generations yet unborn.

While commending the efforts of his friends, the SGF said he was thrilled for the gesture looking at the friendship that lasted for over 50 years cutting across tribes and
religions.

Earlier, the Head of Civil Service of the Federation Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Musa  Bello   in   their separate  goodwill messages,  commended   President Buhari   for  appointing    Mustapha as the SGF.
