Nigerians have been charged to offer constructive suggestions on how to move the nation forward.
They were also enjoined to live in peace at all times.
Those remarks were contained in the address by Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, delivered on his behalf by the Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon Tola Banjo, at the 2012 Annual Lewu day, held at Odolewu.
Commending the Odolewu community for their loyalty, Amosun unfolded government programme to improve the area to include a dual carriage way to facilitate socio-economic development of the community, expansion of its health centre as well as the establishment of a tertiary institution, which would enhance the immense opportunities for the indigenes and their neighbours.
In his welcome address at the event, the Babalaje of Odolewu, Senator Anthony Adefuye, reiterated the need to invite the sons and daughters of the town to come home and develop the community through establishment of cottage industries.
He invited Nigerians, at home and in Diaspora also "to come to Macedonia and help us". He disclosed that gone were the days when indigenes were enveloped in the fear of being killed by "witches and wizards".
Adefuye assured the community, associates and other well wishers of his continued loyalty and dogged strides in returning the community to her enviable pride.
