@53: Nigeria’s problems surmountable – Leaders

Senate President, David Mark

LAGOS—FIFTY three years after independence, Nigerian leaders were unanimous, yesterday, that the challenges facing the country are resolveable and there is need to cement the country’s unity. They also agreed that there is need for a national conference for the people to dialogue and agree on the terms to boost the country’s unity and address her plethora of problems.

We’ve made progress –David Mark

Senate President David Mark assessed the progress of Nigeria since the journey of its independence in 1960 and concluded that the country had fared well enough to deserve commendation.

In a goodwill message by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, the Senate President said: “We are yet to get to the level of our dreams, nobody can deny the fact that we have recorded some landmark achievements since the colonial masters left our shores.

”Besides the infrastructural developments across the country, we now have skilled and qualified manpower in virtually all fields of human endeavour.”

He therefore, implored Nigerians to renew hope and faith in the “capacity and capabilities of our people to rise to a level where citizens could enjoy an internationally acceptable standard of living, thus earning the status of a developed nation.”

Our challenges are surmountable — Tambuwal
