The house of representatives member, Ifo/Ewekoro federal constituency,  Rt. Hon. Ibrahim Ayokunle Isiaka has felicitates with indigenous sons and daughters home and abroad on the occasion of Ogun state at 48 years. 

Isiaka in a statement signed over the weekend he said, meaningful progress and development in an atmosphere of insecurity, credited the development of his state to good management of its diversities.
“Let us also use the occasion of the 49th anniversary of our dear state to appeal to the rest of Nigerians. We must eschew all forms of violence and learn to live together. We must also appreciate that there can be no development in an atmosphere of insecurity. We must learn to manage our diversity and turn it into our strength,” he said.

“There can never be a better lesson in the management of diversity as a source of strength than from us in Ogun State. With over 10 sub-ethnic groups, this diversity has been one of the major forces propelling the development of our dear state. We keep harnessing the strengths and potential of these sub-ethnic groups for the general good of everyone.”

While stating that those fanning the embers of division across the country must not be allowed, he added that ”Ogun State is for all Nigerians and as such, folks from other tribes and every part of Nigeria should be accommodated by indigenes in the spirit of oneness.”

“Today, Ogun State is the home to not just indigenes of our dear state, but people from diverse backgrounds all over the country and even to a lot of foreigners." 

“Yes, I agree there may be reasons for us to disagree on certain issues of our essentials. But, we will only disagree to agree and move forward. We must not encourage those stoking the embers of violence for the disintegration of our great nation. A country where tribes and tongues may differ but stands in brotherhood is where unity in our diversity thrives.
