“Let us remember that the strength of our nation lies in its diversity. We are a tapestry of different ethnicities, religions, and languages, and it is this diversity that makes us unique. Let us embrace our differences, celebrate our shared values, and work towards a future of inclusivity and harmony.
“On this Independence Day, let us renew our commitment to nation-building. Each one of us has a role to play in shaping Nigeria’s destiny.
