INDEPENDENCE DAY 2019: Read full speech of Aliyu Bunza, Chairman, NYCN, Kebbi
Nigerians all over the world are celebrating the INDEPENDENCE DAY! I join everyone in the celebration and extend my hearty cheers to all youths in Kebbi State and beyond.
The fight for independence was fought for so many years; so many young people laid down their lives, innumerable people sacrificed their lives to see to the freedom we now enjoy!
While I pay my respect, greetings and homage to all those who laid down their lives for our country`s independence, I call on all youths to reciprocate this act of patriotism by promoting peace and good governance in Kebbi State.
The youths are the strength of the New Nigeria 🇳🇬 . This is the only country we have and therefore the need to make it safer and better for the next generation.
We must rise against tribalism, favoritism and sentiments aimed at destabilizing our oneness and development.
In line with the Global goals, the universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030 must stand.
We call on the government to address the needs of our teeming youth by creating diverse youth empowerment programs. This will in no small way progressively lead to a sharp rise in our economic indices.
To every young person, male and female, you have a responsibility to seek for the progress of Nigeria. It’s time to put our heads to work.
Arise, o Youths! It’s a new day!
Happy Independence Day
