Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, says no one should be exonerated from being culpable in whatever challenges Nigeria is facing.
Ekohotblog reports that the number ccitizen spoke on Thursday at the presidential villa in Abuja after the Eid prayers on Thursday.
Gbajabiamila noted that the celebration is a period of sacrifice, love and worship amid the challenges in the country.
He noted that all Nigerians should share in the blame of whatever travails are confronting the country.
He said this is not the time for name calling, and urged Nigerians to be united.
“This is not the time for name calling or blaming one another. If truth be told, we all have equal share in the blame in whatever challenges we have. We all must come together. The same way we all have equal shares, we must all come together to make sure that we resolve whatever issues there are,” he said.
He, however, expressed optimism concerning Nigeria’s ability to overcome the present security challenges.
“Like I said earlier, the greatest nations have gone through even worse challenges than this and I believe that it’s that’s spirit of oneness, it is that spirit of togetherness, unity, and love that will get us through this.
“There are many things that people have said here and there. You never know where these things are coming from. Sometimes, God even puts you through challenges so that you can come out of it stronger, bigger, better bolder. And that’s what I believe is going to happen to Nigeria.”
