Nigeria @ 56: Saraki Calls For Collaboration, Prayer To End Recession

Posted: Sep 30, 2016 at 5:45 pm   /   by   /   comments (1)

Senate President Abubakar Saraki, on Friday urged Nigerians to collaborate with the Federal Government to ensure the nation emerges stronger, more united, developed and self-reliant from the current economic recession.

Saraki, in his message to mark the nation’s 56th independence anniversary, signed by Yusuph Olaniyonu, his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), expressed regrets that in those 56 years, Nigeria’s economy remains dependent on only oil, a situation which created the present economic problems being experienced by the citizenry.

He commended Nigerians for their perseverance, understanding and support in the face of the harsh economic condition, urging all to make a commitment “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.

“That is why I continue to say that the responsibility to once again search for credible and lasting solutions to the economic crisis lies with all Nigerians, both at home and in the diaspora. While those of us in leadership must put on our thinking caps to find solution, all hands must be on deck to ensure that the efforts of the economic handlers yield necessary results soon.


“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.

While also specially commending 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, Saraki 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.”
