Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has said Nigeria is in need of peace to develop as a people.
He disclosed this in Gombe on Saturday while inaugurating a 37km road in Deba, Yamaltu-Deba Local Government Area of the state.
He shared that the state experienced development because of the peace that had taken over the area.
His words, “Nigeria needs peace to develop as a people because when the people co-exist peacefully, it is easy to develop.
“I was told Gombe state is the most peaceful in the Northeast and I believe it because where there is peace, there is progress and that is why the state is Developing.
“The governor has done a lot to ensure that there is peace and I like to recommend that model for other governors because Nigeria needs peace.
“The model that worked for Gombe can work for any other state and with that we can deal with it (insecurity).”
