Senator Sharafadeen Alli, chairman of the Senate committee tasked with overseeing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has stated that the problems Nigeria is currently experiencing are temporary.
Senator Alli of Oyo South District, who runs on the All Progressives Congress, APC, platform, has called on his constituents not to give up hope for Nigeria.
He made the remarks in a statement meant to celebrate Nigeria’s 63rd independence day.
On Saturday, the lawmaker’s media adviser, Akeem Abas, made a statement in which he urged the public to maintain their resolve.
He called on his countrymen to show patriotism by standing with the administration.
In it, they added, “As we celebrate our independence as a sovereign nation, it is important for us to fully comprehend the significance of the strides we have made over the years while striving for a better future.”
We must not lose sight of the great strides we have achieved as a people and the limitless potential we have as a nation even as we continue to face economic and social issues.
Please continue to stand for the government as we work through these difficulties and into a brighter future for all of us.
We are cognizant of the dire state of the Nigerian economy and its effects on the populace at large.
But we promise the people that this is only a temporary setback, and that their elected officials are working around the clock to hasten the country’s economic recovery and ensure that its achievements are long-lasting.
Every Nigerian will benefit from our government’s efforts to build a more diverse and equitable economy, and we mean it when we say that.
“As we rejoice on this momentous occasion, let us not lose sight of the fact that true independence can only be achieved through the concerted efforts of a nation’s population.
“We owe it to ourselves and future generations to remain focused on our national aspirations and work diligently towards achieving them.”
