Vice President of Nigeria, Kashim Shettima, on Saturday, met four governors under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Babajide Sanwo Olu (Lagos) Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Abdulrasak AbdulRahaman (Kwara) and Dapo Abiodun (Ogun) in Iperu area of Ogun State where he demanded for a more united Nigeria.

Shettima added that Nigeria’s multicultural diversity should rather be seen as a source of strength and not division.

The Vice President said this at the 37th annual Akesan Day held at the Christ Apostlic Grammar School, Iperu Remo, the hometown of the state governor.

He said the administration of President Bola Tinubu recognised the roles of traditional institutions in navigating the intricacies of the country’s diversity and would therefore always prioritize activities that are designed to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of all the tribes in the country.

Shettima further noted that the commitment as articulated by the president to ensure positive transformation in the lives of Nigerians stand firm and would work round the clock to achieve these goals.

“We pledge our assurances to ensure positive transformation in the lives of Nigerians.

“Festivals like this seeks the unity of the country. Ogun state has always been a source of celebration of enduring cultural heritage and values that enhances unity and development.

“We are here to thank you for reminding us the roles of sociology and economics of cultural celebration in nation building. Our diversity is a source of strength and not division. It is a testimony to our adaptability as a people,” he said.

Also speaking at the event, the state governor said his administration would continue to build on his achievements to make life far better for the residents of the state.

Governor Abiodun described this year’s Akesan Day celebration as a double celebrations for him having won his re-lection case at the Appeal Court in Lagos on Friday.

Aside the governors, also present at the event are; Senator representing Ogun west, Solomon Adeola, National leader of the APC, Olusegun Osoba, among others.
