Governor Makinde said: “On behalf of the Government and the good people of Oyo State, I rejoice with His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR and all Nigerians on the occasion of our country’s 63rd independence anniversary today.

“Our journey as a country has been tumultuous and challenging, but the possibilities and opportunities ahead outweigh the challenges that we face.

“In the past, we mismanaged our diversity and our endowments. But the present presents a chance to right the wrongs of the past.

“So, rather than being overwhelmed by the challenges, we should be motivated by the prospects.

“Instead of surrendering to despair, we should be inspired to dream of a better and stronger Nigeria: A Nigeria where tribe, religion or orientation will not matter, a Nigeria where the rich will flourish and the poor will be protected, a Nigeria where industry will be adored and indolence disdained, a Nigeria where unemployment will be rare, a Nigeria without out-of-school children, a Nigeria that will attract great talents, a Nigeria we shall be proud to bequeath to future generations.

“With all hands on deck, we can make Nigeria great. We can build the Nigeria of our dreams. Let’s put Nigeria first. Let’s come together to chart a new path for Nigeria’s greatness.

“A better, stronger, more prosperous Nigeria is possible.

“Happy 63rd Independence Anniversary, Nigerians.”
