As the nation marks its 62nd Independence anniversary, the ruling All Progressives Congress has said that the country’s cultural diversity will not be weaponised charging Nigerians to hold those who modify it accountable.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, in Abuja on Saturday.

Morka stated that despite existential challenges, the APC’s commitment to unity, peace, safety, security and happiness of the masses remains unassailable and above all other interests.

The statement read, “We must reject and hold accountable those that seek to weaponise our diversity to foment hate and strife, and wreak violence on our people. As Ronald Reagan once said, “peace is not the absence of conflict. It is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.

“The tireless sacrifices of members of our armed forces and other security agencies in the defence and protection of the lives and liberty of our citizens continue to be awe-inspiring, and we owe them a special debt of gratitude, prayers and support.

“Proudly, our citizens shine indomitably in all spheres of human endeavour at home and around the world, winning laurels and bringing honour to us all.”

The APC spokesman reassured that the ruling government will continue to implement programmes of reform and innovation that would help the citizens unleash their abundant talents, create wealth and contribute even more to nation-building.

This is even as he stated that the administration of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) has made significant strides in the fight against graft, revamping and diversifying the economy, curbing insurgency and emerging crimes, promoting positive values and strengthening democratic institutions.

He said, “Our Party is thankful for 62 years gone by and confident that our finest hour is yet ahead of us.  Our priceless unity as one people nourished by our diversity is at the core of our unfailing strength and remains our best hope for a more vibrant future.

“We praise the resilience of our people and reiterate the commitment of our Party and government to do more to improve the living conditions of all Nigerians. We wish to use this auspicious occasion to thank Nigerians for their highly valued support for our great Party, and sustained confidence in the APC-led government.

“We look forward to next year’s general election with optimism, and urge Nigerians to vote massively for our Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and all other candidates of our Party as we strive to deepen democracy and good governance in our country.”
