Former Chief of Basic Workers, Oladipo Diya, has appealed to Nigerians to keep away from actions that will result in struggle.
Diya stated there has all the time been one misunderstanding or the opposite, however current occasions are, “alarming”.
“It’s taking a harmful flip. The indicators are ominous. Allow us to pursue peace and eschew violence in any respect prices, by all means.”
The retired Basic voiced his considerations in an announcement in commemoration of his 77th birthday.
Noting that sociologists warned that the rumours of struggle all the time justify armament, Diya stated armament itself heightens the opportunity of struggle.
“We should keep away from a repeat of errors of the previous. Peace is all we’d like.”
Diya suggested the political class to play by the principles and observe the skinny line that separates politics from governance.
He pressured that safety issues shouldn’t be toyed with on the altar of politicking.
Diya stated hate speech, faux information, and inciting ethnic-religious acts needs to be fully eradicated.
“I’ve fought many wars in my life. I do know the texture, the odor, the agony and the very long time implications. It’s higher to dialogue.”
The ex-top navy officer stated the individuals, “should confront our widespread enemy – struggle and its apostles – in order that we are able to rise collectively as one.”
He reminded residents that Nigeria is a uniquely blessed nation with a big vibrant inhabitants, and urged them to rise above the challenges.
