Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has urged Nigerians to consider using diplomacy to address the nation’s many problems.
This was said by Wike at a Public Lecture/Special Jummu’a Prayer on Friday in Abuja, which was a part of celebrations for Nigeria’s 63rd Independence.
Wike, stressed the importance of integrating socio-economic issues into the national agenda.
The minister acknowledged that the subject was appropriate and stated, “It emphasizes the need of solving the socio-economic difficulties our nation faces.
And perhaps it would show President Bola Tinubu’s agenda from a fresh angle and with newfound optimism.
Despite several difficulties, “Nigeria is still waxing strong in terms of successes recorded across all sectors of the economy.”
He counseled Nigerians to recognize enduring problems like poverty, unemployment, poor infrastructure, and insecurity as tools to revitalize the nation and benefit Nigerians.
He committed to working with other interested parties to ensure inter-citizen peace and to put in a lot of effort to realize the founding fathers’ vision for the nation.
