Nigerian govt must respect human rights to attain national unity - Gbajabiamila


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has given three conditions for a united Nigeria.

Gbajabiamila said the federal government must be willing to guarantee and respect the fundamental rights of all citizens.

He also said Nigerians must be free from want and possess resources to pursue their ambitions.

The third condition Gbajabiamila listed is that insecurity must become a thing of the past.

The Speaker, according to a statement signed by his media aide, Lanre Lasisi, listed these conditions while speaking at the 112th Founder’s Lecture of the King’s College Old Boys Association in Lagos on Saturday.

He said, “Nigeria’s unity is incumbent on our ability to do three things and do them well.

“The first is to ensure that the government respects, protects and guarantees the fundamental rights of all citizens, without exception.

“The second is to provide a society where people are free from want and have resources to pursue their dreams and achieve their best aspirations.

“The third is freeing our people from abject terror and accompanying limitations of wanton insecurity in all its forms.

“This is the pathway to a truly united Nigeria.”
