A telecommunications company, Globacom, has sent its felicitations to Nigeria on the occasion of her 60th Independence anniversary.
In a statement, yesterday, the company said as the nation celebrates on October 1, compatriots at home and abroad should embrace peace, unity and brotherliness as enshrined in the National Anthem while upholding the virtues which the country’s heroes past struggled for, regardless of the challenges currently battling the nation.
“Nigerians as a people should consider the unity of the country as a project that must be upheld by all of us irrespective of our diversities,” it added.
The firm said that Nigerians had reasons to celebrate the country’s continuing status as one cohesive nation bound in freedom, peace and unity for the past 60 years in spite of its various challenges.
said that the nation’s nature as a country of 300 people of diverse traditions, cultures, inclinations and beliefs should enrich and unite rather than polarise the nation.
“All Nigerians should emphasise more on the values that unite us and ignore those that put wedges of attrition between us. We must love and respect one another and hold dear the sanctity of life of every Nigerian in all nooks and crannies of the country; we must relegate our tribal and religious differences, and hold dear the harmony, safety and progress of the nation and its peoples,” the company further averred.
