Lagos - Elated Member-Elect of the House of Representatives for Asa/Ilorin West Federal Constituency, Razak Atunwa, has urged Nigerians to support the incoming administration of Muhammadu Buhari.
“This journey might be difficult and long as a lot of damages have been done to Nigeria by the immediate past administration,” Atunwa said ahead of the eagerly-anticipated inauguration ceremony scheduled for Abuja on Friday.
“I urge Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari, all governors and other political office holders, as they face these challenges with profound strength and limitless faith in the capacity of the Nigeria people. If we are willing to work for it, and believe solely in it, we can attain it. We must reject ethnic or religious bigotry, and embrace the spirit of love, responsibility and patriotism to fellow Nigerians.”
He reminded that aside the swearing-in of the military leader of the 1980s, May 29 had over the years been a public holiday but the 2015 edition was unique.

Atunwa said Nigerians chose to disregard propaganda, doubts, poor government to embrace hopes and aspirations that the nation could be great again.
“Today, the change has come; today marks the end of an era that has mismanaged Nigeria and the beginning of an historic beginning of social growth.”
