Former Lagos State Assembly member Segun Olulade warned that Nigeria’s unity should not be compromised by ethnicity or religion, as that would spell the end of the country.
Olulade issued the warning, during a national dialogue on the “Nigeria Stakeholders Unity Forum” and the launch of two books – I love Nigeria My Country and The Interpretation of Nigerian Constitution in Indigenous Language, written by Prince Ade Ajayi at Lagos, to commemorate the independence anniversary.
He stressed the need for all Nigerians to understand the constitution to have a country of our dreams, noting that the constitution is a ready-made tool for everyone’s freedom for justice and fairness.
In his remarks, Ajayi, who revealed that the initiative was placed under the auspices of the Center for Constitutional Literacy and Civic Education of the Prince Ade Ajayi Foundation (PAAF), revealed that civic education and Constitutional literacy is both crucial for government performance and the achievement of the rule of law.
He noted that the foundation realizes that true empowerment cannot be achieved through passive follow-up but rather through intentional choices.
“The PAAF is proud to be at the forefront of this crusade to empower our people through civic education and constitutional literacy. The launch of the books is one of the foundation’s many projects aimed at promoting positive social advancement and empowerment of young people.
“He will free the citizens from total ignorance; it will promote the heritage of the country’s indigenous languages and cultures; it will ensure participatory democracy; this will help to avoid false statements and misinterpretations; it will promote the interests of diverse groups and cultures; and that will boost access to social justice and accountability, ”he said.
