Those who are antagonistic to the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan have been advised to change in their opinion and join hands with the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to address the current insurgency and dwindling economy and bring about better governance.
The Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Right Hon Peter Onwusanya, who gave the advise in his New Year message, expressed the hope that the year 2015 will enhance the political and economic fortunes of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“The position of the opposition in the current political and economic situation is becoming unpatriotic. Every Nigerian must see co-operate to find solution. Those who are consistently opposed to government policies without preferring solution are not helping the country. Therefore we must all appreciate the need to support the Government so that Nigerians would smile”, he stated.
Hon Onwusanya who represents Oshinmili South Constituency, commended the people of Delta State for their peaceful disposition that had paved the way for the administration at both the state and federal levels to excel.
While saying that Delta State has remained one of the peaceful states in the federation, he attributed the situation to the co-operation of the residents who were law abiding and ready to support government programmes and policies.
He said the state House of Assembly will cash-in on the peoples co-operation to ensure that laws are made for the betterment of the populace, stressing that it is the belief of the lawmakers that Deltans would reap marginally the benefits of democracy.
The Speaker urged Nigerians to live in hope because 2015 will bring better things and prove cynics wrong as contrary to negative predictions, the country will overcome the subsisting challenges.
