NIGERIANS have been advised to remain confident and optimistic that despite the problems, Nigeria will continue to remain an indivisible entity.

Former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida said this while addressing newsmen in Minna, Niger State on the 62nd anniversary of Nigeria.

General Babangida said to achieve this, a collective effort by all and sundry is required.

He applauded the efforts of successive administrations in Nigeria for trying to keep the country united and called for more to succeed.

On what he desired for Nigeria, Babangida said he wants the country to remain a strong, prosperous, and united country where peace reigns supreme.

He also expressed optimism that the current crisis between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will be resolved soon.

General Babangida appealed to youths in the country to desist from the temptation of allowing themselves to be used as thugs by politicians.

Meanwhile, the former Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar has called for the recruitment of additional security personnel to effectively tackle the problem of insurgency bedevilling Nigeria.

He made the call while addressing journalists at his Hilltop residence in Minna yesterday.

General Abubakar said this had become imperative because security personnel have been overstretched and thus the need for the recruitment of more security forces for maximum benefits.

He also stressed the need for the provision of necessary equipment for security personnel to enable them to discharge their duties effectively while calling on Nigerians to provide them with useful information that will assist in improving the security system.

On the lifting of the ban on presidential campaigns by INEC, he expressed sadness that some electorates are still selling their votes while to his dismay politicians are also encouraging the negative act and called for a change of attitude to overcome such challenges.

General Abubakar, who warned politicians against campaigns on calumny and abuse wants them to engage in a campaign of tolerance to achieve a hitch-free 2023 general elections.

While reacting to the question on restructuring, he maintained that though members of national state houses of assemblies have a vital role to play on this matter however said equity justice, and fairness are what is needed in Nigeria.

Abubakar expressed optimism that the problem between the Federal Government and ASUU will be a thing of the past soon.
