Nigerians have been called upon to get involved in building the nation and charting the way forward for a better Nigeria.
This was made known during a media parley on Tuesday in Abuja, where media personalities, resource persons, political aspirants met to discuss the importance of good governance.
A distinguished Professor and diplomat, Professor Hagher Iyorwuese while speaking at the event said the Nigerian child should be empowered through quality education.
He said Nigerians for a long time had been neglected in terms of basic amenities and quality education.
The Professor also said that National Unity should be the main focus of any leader.
One of the resource persons at the event, Mr. Omagbitse Barrow explained that Nigerians should get involved in the affairs of what affects them especially as it concerns National issues.
He said; “Nigeria can only get better when we forward thinking Nigerians decide to do things differently, building on this, we can’t just keep writing, talking, posting on social media and then sleeping it out on Election Day because we do not care.”
“We need to participate actively in the electoral and political process, join political parties of forward thinking Nigerians who offer alternatives to the over-experienced establishment parties and get involved in selecting and grooming leaders.”
We must begin to focus and play politics on the real issues and get beyond ethnicity, religion and money politics.”
