The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) has said that it is set to convoke a summit on security, peace and national integration.
The National President of the Institute and Chairman of the Council, Mallam Mukhtar Sirajo, stated this in Asaba while addressing newsmen after a tour of some legacy projects of Governor Okowa of Delta state.
Mallam Sirajo said that the proposed of the convocation was to strengthen mutual relationships and build trust among the nation’s component parts.
According to the NIPR National President “We want to bring back a Nigeria where we will use our diversity for what it was meant by God; as a blessing and opportunity for all of us to come together, bringing our individual and collective endowments to the table for the general good of all.
“This is why we feel it is important to bring Nigerians together for us to talk among ourselves rather than sit in our comfort zones and haul blames at one another.”
Mallam Sirajo, who was accompanied by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Neighbourhood Watch, Elder Emma Ogidi, commended Governor Okowa for the vision and quality of the legacy projects visited, even as he said that the institute would honour Governor Ifeanyi Okowanfor his purposeful and noteworthy leadership.
He said that Governor Okowa would be invested as a patron of the Institute at the Annual Memorial Lecture in honour of its founding member, Sam Epelle, slated to hold on Monday August 6, 2021.
Earlier the Obi of Owa, HRM Emmanuel Efeizomor stressed that Nigeria was passing through a phase of its history, and recommended the adoption of public relations to address the country’s challenges and restoring it to its glorious days.
‘’Nigeria should build a new attitudinal projection, work towards the development of human relations. I cannot think of anybody telling me that Nigeria should break; if we break, where do we go to? Countries that have broken, at one point, still seek to come back together,” the monarch said.
The projects visited include the State Central Secretariat, the Asaba Specialist Hospital (ASH), the storm drainages and the Film Village located in the state capital, the Teachers Professional Development Centre (TPDC) as well as Federal Road Safety Training School both in Owa-Alero.
