A former Secretary to Oyo State government, Chief Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli has declared that Nigerians deserve better livelihood more than the one they are currently experiencing.
Alli, who contested the gubernatorial election on the platform of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in 2019, said that citizens deserve better living conditions from the federal government headed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Alli in his New Year message made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Friday, urged state governors among whom are Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Dapo Abiodun of Ogun and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State among others to find ways of ameliorating the current hardship many Nigerians are facing.
He urged governments at all levels to renew commitment in rebuilding the country.
Alli while speaking further, urged Nigerians to be careful with the increase in the number of coronavirus as the figure in the country and Oyo State are increasing.
Alli said, “In 2020, we faced many challenges, especially that of COVID-19. Let us all be focus and maintain all the protocols of COVID- 19 as prescribed by experts.
“There is hope for betterment of this great nation. There are potentials in Oyo State and we shall tap those potentials.
“I urged both Christians and Muslims to use this opportunity to pray for the betterment of Nigeria. We shall all live to witness the prosperous and greatness of our dear state.
“As we are celebrating the new year, I want to appeal to us to be mindful of the scourge of the deadly COVID- 19 virus which is increasing on a daily basis. It is still very much with us. We have to maintain all the protocols as prescribed by experts.
“I also want to appeal to government at all levels to put more efforts in ensuring that our people benefit more from the government. Our people deserve better livelihood. Nigeria shall be great again.”
