Dele Ogbodo in Abuja

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has charged Nigerians to rise up to the task of defending Nigeria’s unity in line with the national pledge as the need for national cohesion is more real now than ever.

This was contained in a statement signed by Mr. Fidel Agu, the Deputy Director; Public Affairs, on behalf of the Director General of NOA, Dr. Garba Abari, in a congratulatory message to Nigerians on the occasion of the 2016 Democracy Day celebration.

Abari stressed that the responsibility of ensuring the unity of the nation and the sustenance of its democracy is the task of all Nigerians.

While congratulating Nigerians on the sustenance of democracy, the man also commended the citizenry for supporting the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to deliver on its Change Agenda, noting that the successes so far recorded by the administration in security and anti-corruption would not have been possible without popular support.

He said: “At such a time in our history when we are sending elements of terror and disintegration into extinction, they are showing evidence of defeat by attempting to sow seeds of discord across the country using veiled attacks.”
