“I want to insist and pray that we must continue this spirit of unity and I am sure we would still be able to deliver the dividends of democracy until the last day in office.

“I see the brotherhood and love between the traditional institutions in this state and it rejoices in my heart. I hope every state can emulate this and that if we can come together as a people and stay on the side of Justice, we will be able to remove ourselves from where we are now.

“Every Nigerian should realize that we have an individual and collective role to play in other countries to rebuild the foundations of our nation,” Okowa said.
