A former Provost of the College of Education, Gidan Waya, Kaduna State, Prof. Alexander Kure, has observed that it is through the coming together of people of different cultures that Nigeria can become great.

According to him, “African nationalist leaders, for example, understood this and succeeded in bringing about political independence in Africa with people of different cultures fighting for a common goal.”

Speaking in a keynote address at the inauguration of constituted standing committees of the Agbiri-Gure Development Association, in Kaduna on Saturday, he noted that it is only by coming together that the people forget their differences to fight a common enemy and achieve a common goal.

He urged Nigerians to unite towards fighting any individual or group of people that are working contrary to the wishes and aspirations of the larger society in the realisation of peace, unity and development in the country.

Prof. November N. Kuchimala of the Department of Agronomy, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, encouraged the people to remain united in all their dealings irrespective of any differences, towards ensuring peace and unity.

The President of the Agbiri-Gure National Development Association, Arch. Audu N. Y. Garba, urged the committee members to approach their responsibilities with dedication, creativity and a strong sense of purpose, saying that their contributions, no matter how big or small, will have a ripple effect that can bring about meaningful and lasting change in their community.
