As the country marks its 59th independence anniversary, the Nigerian Senate has assured Nigerians that it would always provide quality representation and legislation that would enhance their living standard.
This was contained in a statement issued on Monday, September 30, by its Chairman, Media and Public Affairs, Sen. Adedayo Adeyeye, who felicitated with Nigerians at home and in the diaspora on the occasion of the independence anniversary.
It noted that though there were challenges facing the country, “we are strengthened and hopeful in our collective resolve and spirit of brotherhood as Nigerians that Nigeria shall be great.
“And as true people’s representatives, we stand by all actions necessary and sufficient to realise this greatness.
“The ninth senate, an indispensable stakeholder in our country’s blossoming democracy reaffirms once again, its total commitment to always provide quality representation and legislation that will enhance living standard for our people.
“We shall partner with the executive, judiciary, civil society organisations, Non-governmental Organisations, the media and every relevant stakeholder in the Nigerian project to find a lasting solution to the challenges that we currently face as a nation.
“Happy 59th independence anniversary Nigerians,” Adeyeye said.
In a similar vein, the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan also felicitated with Nigerians in commemoration of the nation’s 59th Independence Anniversary.
Lawan, in a statement he personally signed in Abuja, however, pointed out that there were still miles to cover in an effort to position the country towards actualising the dreams of the founding fathers.
He said: “I felicitate with fellow Nigerians at home and abroad on the occasion of the 59th Independence Anniversary of our dear country, Nigeria.
“As Nigeria comes of age, with its people increasingly asserting themselves in every sphere of life across the globe, there is indeed much to be proud of in being a Nigerian. Let us count our blessings and be driven forward by them.”
