politicians, is an act of lack of desperation to occupy political office.”
Directing his comments to the former President of the Senate, the VP said, “It is clear that you want to serve, but not at all cost.”
Continuing, he observed that the lack of desperation helped Nnamani in having the courage of his convictions. “This is why even at the risk of losing his senate presidency at the time, he stood against the notorious third term agenda and he stood very strong,” the VP said.
“A nation such as ours must have men and women who are capable of standing strong.
“Sen. Nnamani, we are today faced with challenges that call for the same type of strong leadership that you showed many years ago as President of the Senate, especially on the question of national unity and the building of a just fair and equitable society.
“We know that we as a nation are better together than apart, and our collective future is worth fighting for. Therefore, this generation of leaders has a historic responsibility to handover an economically and socially strong, and united nation to the coming generation,” he added.
