By Wahab Akanji, Abuja
President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, has assured Nigerians that things would get better in 2017.
A statement by his media aide, Alhaji Yusufh Olaniyonu, quoted the Senate President as making the assurance in Abuja on Saturday in his New Year message.
In the statement obtained by BLACKFACE on Saturday, Saraki urged Nigerians to remain hopeful in spite of the current hardship.
Saraki commended Nigerians for their resilience in the face of difficulties, stressing that the nation’s challenges were surmountable.
He called for collective efforts to end recession and work towards growing the economy in the New Year, adding that there was need for unity of purpose and focus among Nigerians.
“It is a thing of joy to celebrate the New Year in an atmosphere of peace and security. For one thing, the people of the North East and other Nigerians are celebrating without fear of attacks from insurgents or other criminal elements.
“This was made possible by the determination of the present administration to effectively secure the country and ensure peace, which is key for any development.
“I believe that by working collectively in the New Year we will be able to right the wrongs of the past and ensure renewed economic, social and political development of our dear country’’, he said.
He called for strengthening the capacity of entrepreneurs to produce local content while urging Nigerians to always patronise locally made goods.
According to him, though Nigeria is not where it ought to be, citizens must continue to take steps that will take the country to its envisioned destination.
