Ndukwe Charles Chuka called on all Nigerians to lend their support to the Unity Torch Tour of the Legends Wrestle for National Unity in honour of our heroes past and Living Legends.
The Commissioner emphasized the importance of unity in Nigeria, stating that Nigerians have no home other than Nigeria. He noted that Lagos state has a vital role to play in the project and that is why the state was made the first stop of the Unity Torch.
Hon Chuka announced that from Lagos the unity torch will be taken round five states of the other geopolitical zones by the Unity ambassador, Patience Ozorkwor, galvanizing support for unity in the country before finally being handed over to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Muhamadu Buhari on the 6th of December in Abuja.

On her decision to be a part of the programme, Ozokwor said; “Sports is one area that is universal. Nigeria has to be one, whether anybody likes it or not, because so many people from the South have really invested in the North and vice versa. We can’t abandon what we have invested. These are things that we are leaving behind for our children. So the best thing is to keep Nigeria one.”
