Abbo noted that; "In many ways, the voyage has been agonizing, but it has also been eventful. Our variety is a source of strength. Nigerians' can-do spirit must be reignited by our political, religious, and traditional leaders preaching a message of optimism.
â€œThose stoking the fires of disintegration or conflict by hate speeches, abduction, banditry, terrorism, and other societal evils should sheathe their swords so that peace might reign,â€ he said.
Despite the senator's unhappiness with recent events, he pointed out that no matter how angry a human should be, killing or destroying property is not a solution.
