Nigerian politicians have been charged to bury their political differences and maintain unity of purpose for the progress of the country.
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, gave the charge while receiving the members of the Senate Committee on Army, led by its chairman, Senator Ali Ndume, in his office.
He stated that Nigerians need to keep talking to one another and put the national interest first at this period.
According to him, national peace is paramount at this period, adding that there is the need for all politicians, irrespective of their political affiliations, to work together for the progress of the nation.
While speaking on the state of security in the country, the governor maintained that Oyo State would always be accommodating to all ethnic groups, except criminal and disgruntled elements among them.
He equally commended the efforts of the Nigerian military in combating crimes across the geopolitical zones of the county.
Earlier in his remarks, Senator Ndume lauded Governor Makinde for providing basic and social amenities, such as street lights to military barracks in the state.
Ndume also commended the governor for the tremendous changes the state has witnessed within a short period of time.
