Protect unity of Nigeria, Benue First Lady tells citizenry

The wife of Benue State governor, Mrs. Doshima Yemisi Suswam, has tasked Nigerians to protect the unity of the country, pointing out that Nigeria belongs to all the citizens.

She stated this yesterday while receiving the Most Supportive First Lady of the Year award conferred on her by The Sun Publishing Lim­ited.

She expressed concern over security challenges cur­rently threatening the peace of the nation and its unity.

Mrs Suswam noted that the media have a major role in strengthening what she de­scribed as Nigeria’s shaking unity. She congratulated all the recipients of the awards, saying she held The Sun Awards in high esteem.

The Benue First lady com­mended the management of the newspaper for making it a must-read newspaper for Nigerians across the country.

Her words: “I want all Nigerians to live together and remain as one and Nige­ria will be great again. This award means a lot to us in Benue State. Let me state here that I don’t joke with The Sun newspaper, I buy it everyday. The Sun for me is a must-read. What can one do without The Sun?

“I had always watched the past Sun Awards with admiration and I never knew that I would be honoured today. Our clinics had given free drugs to over 12,000 patients, our foundation had catered for the widows, or­phans and other less-privi­leged people in the state. I dedicate this award to God and every leader that has the fear of God,”she said.

Presenting the award to the First Lady, Mrs Folake Solanke congratulated her, acknowledging her role in standing by her husband to deliver dividends of democ­racy to Benue people.
