As Nigeria marks her 55th independence anniversary today, a university don and former governorship aspirant in the Akwa Ibom State, Doctor Peter Esuh has called on Nigerians to celebrate uninterrupted democracy rather than unseen basic infrastructures.
Speaking on the achievement of the country in the past 55 years, Doctor Esuh commended the federal government for the low key celebration which he said was apt as the country has not achieved a lot in many sectors in her history for a big celebration.
While noting that leadership dictates development, the Communication Arts lecturer said the body language of President Muhamadu Buhari holds promise for a better future for the country following his drive to eradicated corruption from Nigeria and urged Nigerians to support the present administration and engage only in constructive criticisms that would move the country forward.
Another senior lecturer in the department of Communication Arts, University of Uyo, Doctor Nsikak Idiong called on government to commence action in addressing some of its campaign promises to better the living standards of Nigerians.
Our correspondent, Bassey Ibiatisuho reports that other Nigerians called on the government to tackle corruption and create jobs for the teeming youths in the country.
