A former chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, said he is a father and pray for all Nigerians, especially those he considered to be his children, to be better than him in life.
Tukur also said he always pray that God should heal Nigeria. As his Sallah message to them, he called all Nigerians to imbibe the culture of discipline.
The former PDP chairman disclosed this to journalists at his residence in Yola, Adamawa state, noting that the nation can only develop if the populace would imbibe the culture of discipline in whatever they found themselves doing.
Tukur who was in Yola to celebrate Sallah and condole with his relatives over the death of his younger brother, Alhaji Aliyu Tukur, explained further that to be disciplined simply means obedience to the country’s laws and principles.
According to him, “discipline is very important if we want our nation to develop therefore let us obey our laws and regulations guiding us as a nation. If we feel that our laws are not relevant, let us change them.”
The elder statesman who just celebrated his 80th birthday, said he has come a long way in life, hence as a father to the nation, he was using the opportunity to advise Nigerians to be disciplined in any endeavour of life.
He added that the insecurity, corrupt practices and social vices bedevilling the nation currently were as a result of indiscipline or disobedience to the laws of the nation.
Tukur said the only way out of our present predicament as a nation was to embrace the culture of discipline.
He called on Nigerians to support the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari which has been making efforts to nip the Boko Haram insurgency and corruption bedevilling the nation in the buds.
He extolled Buhari’s administration saying it is on the right track in its efforts to stop the country from going down the drain, adding that this milestone can only be achieved by imbibing the culture of discipline or obedience to set rules and regulations.
The elder statesman said although he has quit active politics his doors were open to advise and support Nigerians who needed to develop their businesses, be good administrators and those who wanted to be better in life.
He also called on the Adamawa people to support Governor Muhammad Jibrilla Bindow of the state, adding that “it is wrong to vote a governor into power and not support him.”
