The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adamu Mu’azu, has asked Nigerians to eschew violence as the general elections approach so as to show the world that its democracy has come of age over the last 15 years.
He stated this in a New Year message to Nigerians on Monday.
Mr. Mu’azu said the steady progress Nigeria had made in recent years had been outstanding and that Nigerians “must thank God for making the country the biggest economy in Africa while not forgetting increased agricultural production and the investment opportunities it continued to attract as well as the massive infrastructural development at the local, state and national levels.”
While wishing Nigerians a happy New Year, the PDP national chairman, urged them to pray for peaceful polls in 2015, enhanced national security and the continued development of our dear country by the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“I also urge Nigerians to pray for the families of our missing school girls and the victims of the various bomb blasts in Nigeria, just as we thank God for the mercies granted us by freeing us from the scourges of Ebola and the positive transformation of our country in various fields, he said.
“I wish all Nigerians a Happy and Prosperous New Year and my prayer is that God will grant us the wisdom to choose love instead of hatred, peace instead of war and progress instead of stagnation. God bless Nigeria.”
