Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Sulaimon Lasun Yussuff has appealed to Nigerians to give President Muhammadu Buhari a chance to address some of the problems facing this country, most especially Boko Haram and corruption.
The Deputy Speaker said this in his new year message to Nigerians both within and diasporal released by his Chief Press Secretary, Wole Oladimeji and made available in to journalists.
He urged that this country can only develop in the atmosphere when “peace reins, therefore, there is need to eschew violence, bitterness and suspicion.”
He said “For the nation economy to thrive, there is need to look inward and start thinking on how to diversify the economy and make agriculture, science and technology priority.”
“National Assembly is aware of the hardship in the country, therefore the leadership of the National Assembly is working with the executive in ensuring that 2018 is better.”
He assured that all necessary laws that will help President Mohammodu Buhari to succeed will be passed, therefore, there is a lot of hope in the coming year.
He however, appealed to Nigerians to exercise more patience and allow the president to rid the nation of corruption and Boko Haram so that the nation could move forward.
