For it is our sense of unity that will guarantee the indivisibility of our country, sense of ingenuity will give us technological breakthrough while our sense of patriotism will be an enabler of peace and security of our nation.

“For every good action, it is first conceived in the mind as a thought before it is processed and translated into what we do physically. So, with patriotic mind set, the outcomes of our thought will make Nigeria greater,” Otu stated.

The state chief executive admitted the fact that citizens of the state presently face harsh  economic  situation  like their compatriots in other states of the federation but added  that  this unfriendly economic climate is not only limited to Nigeria alone but is worldwide.
