Former Speaker of the House of Representatives and Chancellor of Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State, Hon Yakubu Dogara, says the 2023 elections will strengthen Nigeria’s unity.
Dogara who stated this during the 12th convocation and 15th anniversary of the institution, said despite the growing anxiety over the election, the country would be more united as a nation, saying the 2023 election would not consume the country.
He, however, called on Nigerians to employ radical solutions in solving the leadership problems and challenges confronting the country, urging Nigerians to speak with their PVCs.
According to him, being radical was to shun violence, vote buying, and embrace peaceful electoral processes that entailed orderliness, restoring the sanctity of the rule of law and strengthening democratic institutions in order to build a just, fair and equitable society for all.
He said, “We cannot look away as stakeholders in the Nigeria project. It is therefore imperative that we have a voice in moving the Nation forward.
Remember the power is your vote and vote is your future. Don’t sell it and don’t keep it in your room.
“You must use it. Participate by coming out massively to vote for your conscience. Vote for unity, peace, justice and development.”
