Nigeria@56: Saraki laments economic hardship, calls for prayers | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has called on Nigerians from all walks of life to collaborate with the Federal Government in order to ensure the nation emerged from the current economic recession stronger, more united, developed and self-reliant.

Saraki in his message to mark the nation’s 56th Independence Anniversary signed by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, also commended all Nigerians, especially the nation’s founding fathers, for their contributions that have averted disaster from the nation at every point her existence is threatened by social, political and economic problems.

While expressing regrets that in her 56 years of existence, Nigeria’s economy still depends on only oil, a situation which created the present economic problems being experienced by the citizenry, the Senate President commended Nigerians for their perseverance, understanding and support in the face of the harsh economic condition.

“As we celebrate independence, we should all vow to work together as we have done in the past to save the nation. As we expect leaders to initiate policies, programmes and projects that will propel the economy to grow rapidly and improve the standard of living of the people, our people should also seek to explore their creative talents to produce goods and services which can compete with the best in the world, thereby enhancing our ability to export massively and earn foreign exchange.

“No single individual can solve our present economic predicament. I believe that with our collective efforts and sheer political will, we can push back the high tide of recession now confronting us as nation. Many countries came out of recession stronger because they allow it to challenge their creativity. Let us all support the government with new ideas on how to do things differently that will in no time bring the expected abundance we need as a people. We have the manpower, resources, know-how and determination to change our situation for the better”, Saraki said.

He also called for prayers from individuals and faith based organizations for the quick recovery of the economy as “we can only achieve our goals with the blessings of God upon our efforts.”
