The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Muhammed Idris, has called for collective unity amongst people to achieve the dividend of democracy.
He said that democracy is nothing if it doesn’t bring progress, development and unity among the people.
The Minister, who spoke when the APC North-Central Zone visited him in his office, said: “it was for this reason that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is constantly promoting the dual concepts of unity and economic prosperity to our people. As the chief image maker of Nigeria, that is the message I am also disseminating.
“National re-orientation is at the heart of the change and hope that we all desire for this country; each one of us has the responsibility to recover his steps and do the right thing.”
He called on the party members to unite and engage more so that they can achieve great things for the country.
Idris stressed the need for the party to galvanize people towards a common understanding and shared vision for what the country should be, and that this could be achieved through the party machinery across all levels.
The National Vice Chairman of the APC, North Central, Alhaji Bawa Rijau, on behalf of the National Working Committee of the party and Zonal Executives, congratulated the Minister on his appointment.
He thanked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for appointing one of their own, saying that this is a clear indication that the president appreciated the role Alhaji Idris played during the campaign.
The delegation assured the Minister of their support at all times, even as they asked him to work with his colleagues in the cabinet to fast-track development in the zone.
“The North Central zone did very well in the last election, and because of this, we expect you and your cabinet colleagues to work together to ensure that the interests of the North Central are protected.”
