He recently revealed this during a thanksgiving service and 10th-anniversary celebration in honour of the late Chief Johnson Kalu, the father of the Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Kalu, at Igbere in Bende Local Government Area of Abia.
According to him, the citizens should put their tribal, religious and political affiliations aside and come together to make Nigeria great.
He added that our nation has the potential to be great, and Nigeria is designed to be a nation of many people of different orientation, but common purpose and destiny.
His words, “Nigeria is designed by the grace of God to be a nation of many people of different orientation but common purpose and destiny.”
“You should attempt to be the leaders of Nigeria and not to stay away from the part of the real centre of action in Nigeria.
“So let us continue to unite in Abia and Southeast not only in making the whips of the NASS but making Nigeria ours.
“Time is of the essence, Nigeria needs all of us to be united and all hands to be on deck to make the nation work and we can make it work.”
