The President of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), High Chief Musa Isiwele Shehu has emphasized the importance of unity, peace and love in the stability and development of Nigeria of our dreams. He said inter-tribal/ethnic marriages are means of cementing any cracked walls in our sovereign existence.
Shehu who spoke on economy diversification, Nigeria’s unity as a sovereign state amongst other issues affecting the country identified unity, peace and love as panacea to the challenges bedeviling our corporate existence irrespective of ethnic, tribal and religious differences.
Shehu spoke yesterday at an exclusive interview with UNITY TIMES where he bared his mind on the spate of hate speeches, threats and bullying of Nigerians living in any part of the country and advised elders/leaders to desist from encouraging younger folks towards rebellious acts and fawning any ember of war capable of disintegrating Nigeria.
Alhaji Shehu who is also a traditional ruler with the title ‘Aigbogun 1’ of Uromi Kingdom proposed further called on the youths to be more proactive and enterprising in contributing their quota to the development of the country while urging those in positions of authority both in public and private pursuits to shun any form of corruption which has dragged our country to state of disrepute, infrastructural stagnation and the quagmire we find ourselves presently.
The older statesman berated and pleaded with those calling and agitating for secession to have a rethink and come to the negotiating table for deliberations geared towards achieving lasting solutions to all the challenges tearing the nation apart.
The RTEAN president appealed to Nigerians (both home and abroad) to support the current administration succeed in its set agenda.
High Chief Shuhu is a consummate transporter, philanthropist per excellence and a former Senior Police Officer who served in various capacities in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and retired meritoriously after 35 years of service.
