Nigeria at 57: Amosun Preaches Unity, Flays Calls for Secession

As Nigerians celebrate 57 years of the country's independence, they have been told to uphold and strengthen the unity binding them, in order to fulfil the dream of the founding fathers.

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, gave the charge at the special Thanksgiving Service held to commemorate Nigeria's 57th Independence anniversary, at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Ake, Abeokuta.

He said, though, the nation has been experiencing series of challenges, ranging from insecurity, economic downturn, corruption, among others, the people still need to be united, noting that secession will be disastrous and regrettable.

The governor, represented by his Deputy, Chief (Mrs.) Yetunde Onanuga, called on all and sundry to continue praying for the manifestation of the desired positive change that will help the nation reclaim its lost glory.

Amosun assured the people that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government, is committed to meeting their aspirations.

Earlier in his sermon, the Bishop of Ijebu Diocese, Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. Olusina Fape, said Nigerians should turn away from their sins and call on God to heal the country, as the challenges facing it, such as agitation for restructuring, sessation, insurgency and strikes, amongst others, can only be overcome through prayers.

The cleric, who identified corruption and selfishness as the two main problems of the country, called on politicians to unite for the benefit of the people and development of the country.

He emphasised that when God answers the prayers of Nigeria, there would be peace, harmony, progress, development and economic stability in the country.

Ogun not among states owing teachers’ salaries – NUT Sec-Gen

The Secretary-General of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Dr. Mike Ike-Ene, has described as ‘erroneous’, the inclusion of Ogun State among states owing teachers’ salaries.
Ike-Ene, who claimed he was misrepresented by his interviewer, therefore, gave the state a clean bill of health in the area of prompt payment of teachers’ salary.
The NUT Secretary General was, on Wednesday, reported to have listed Ogun State among 13 states in Nigeria owing teachers’ salaries.
But Ike-Ene, speaking, with journalists in a telephone interview in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, rebuffed the report credited to him saying “the error was from the person who interviewed me because I never mentioned Ogun State”.
He, however, described Governor Ibikunle Amosun as a “teacher-friendly governor who has transformed the education sector positively and continues to give priority to the welfare of teachers”.
Meanwhile, the state’s Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Wale Oshinowo, who expressed surprise at the publication, said the Ibikunle Amosun-led administration in the state had continued to pay salaries of all its workers as and when due and not owing any category of its worker salaries.
He, therefore, assured that the state government would not relent in giving the best to its workers.
