The Chairman of Bifocal Group of Companies and publisher of Blueprint Newspapers, Mohammed Idris, has charged Nigerians to join hands in building a more prosperous Nigeria.
Idris who is also the Chairman of WeFM 106.3, stated this in a statement personally signed by him in commemoration of the nation’s 60th independence anniversary.
He noted that it is important for Nigerians to rededicate themselves to working for the progress and development of the nation.
His statement reads in part; “As we commemorate Nigeria’s Independence Day, it is time to look to the future with hope for a more prosperous country”.
“Let us renew our pledge to always uphold our national unity and commit ourselves to working for its progress and development. Let us join hands to build the country of our dreams”, the statement further read.
He also commended media and public relations practitioners in the country for their efforts in promoting sustainable development in Nigeria.
“The media has played a very important role in our nation-building since independence. History will always be kind to the media for leading the way in the pre and post-independent Nigeria. More than ever before, the task of sustaining and consolidating on the gains of independence greatly lies with the media and we can not afford to fail the people in this regard. ”
