He preached unity among Nigerians in order to overcome the prevailing insecurity in some parts of the country, adding that “only in an atmosphere of peace and harmony that Nigeria can record more growth and development.”

Sulu-Gambari also prayed God to guide Nigerian leaders toward providing leadership quality that would translate into the realisation of the desired prosperity at all the facets of the country.

He urged University authorities to always embark on research that would profer meaningful solutions to the lingering social menace, economic challenges and infrastructure decadence in the country.
