Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state says Nigeria will become a better nation and able to harness its untapped resources if the people become more united.
He stated this at the 2021 Sam Epelle Memorial Gold Paper Lecture, organized by the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, NIPR in Asaba, noting that the endowments and resources of the country could not be harnessed and put to full economic use without unity.
Okowa added that unity was at the heart of progress, sustainable development and wealth, adding that unity would help Nigeria to harness untapped resources.
He said the country is in dire need of good leadership that would entrench the desired unity, sustainable growth and development in the nation.
The governor also noted that leadership is pivotal to whatever social change that was desired in any society.
Earlier, the President and Chairman of NIPR’s Governing Council, Mukhtar Sirajo, thanked Okowa for hosting the Institute’s annual lecture in Asaba.
