The Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Engr Ade Adetimehin has felicitated President Muhammadu Buhari, the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s 62nd independence anniversary.
Adetimehin while addressing journalists in Akure the Capital of Ondo state, said Independence Day affords Nigerians to annually introspect about how far the country has gone since gaining independence from the British government and set agenda to move forward.
He stressed that Nigeria has a long way to go to be in the comity of highly industrialised nations but “we are on the path to greatness.”
The party chairman disclosed that the developed nations we are looking up to have also passed through the phase of underdevelopment which we are presently going through .
If surmounted those challenges, with the indomitable spirit of Nigerians, it is certain we will also overcome our challenges and emerge a stronger, more prosperous and united nation we are destined to be.
He therefore called on Nigerians to be patient and pray for the emergence of leaders that would turn the country around in the 2023 general election.
The party chairman said: “Nigeria is a great country and we as citizens are proud to call Nigeria our home. We have no other country to call our own.
