ABUJA, Nigeria can be rescued with sincerity and discipline, the representative, Northern Central People’s Forum, Mr Gabriel Yakowa, has said.
Mr. Yakowa, who said everybody knows the country is at a crossroad and there must be rescue effort because we cannot continue dialoguing, was speaking during the 18th Daily Trust Dialogue with the theme, ‘Restructuring, why? How?’ yesterday in Abuja.

He said there are enough materials in the cabinet of government, even from what has been discussed at the conference so far, to restructure the country, adding that we must begin to create a situation whereby Nigerians, whether young or old, need to keep this country together.
“What is pleasing now is that 85 per cent of Nigerians believe we must keep Nigeria together, they love Nigeria wherever they are and now we have to fix it.”
Mr. Yakowa also said Nigeria cannot move forward unless we all imbibe discipline, sincerity and security.
“Without these three it will be difficult to move forward. Let us think of discipline which begins from home.
“Secondly, the sincerity of purpose is important and thirdly security as whatever we do, we ourselves must be secure in our country because if the country is not secure, we will not have investors coming to join us.
“We have too much for the world around that we shouldn’t be playing around with it.”
Yakowa further said, if we must recall, the president we have today, Muhammadu Buhari got his popularity from discipline.
He added that the act of indiscipline and insincerity is what has led us to the world of insecurity and we must rescue our country and develop on the positive contributions we have made to preserve it.
