Senators operating under the Southern Senators Forum have expressed optimism that 2022 would be a year of abundance and prosperity while they asked the citizens to keep hope in God.
The Southern Senators Forum, in a statement on Friday by its Chairman, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, for New year Celebration, urged all Nigerians to continue to have faith in God and be rest assured that whatever that is currently difficult will definitely be solved.
He said Nigeria could only savour the expected economic prosperity and gains when unity is guaranteed and security of lives and property is assured for rapid investment.
He added that God does not create human beings for hardship because when God created man and woman in the Garden of Eden, they were created in the midst of abundance.
The governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said, “I am confident that in the year, there will be prosperity and Abundance for Nigerians. The issue of insecurity and unemployment among our youths will be a thing of the past in this new year.
“I am imploring Nigerians to continue to have faith in God and be rest assured that whatever that is currently difficult at present moment will be resolved.
“God does not create human beings to suffer, when God created the first man and woman, they were created in the midst of abundance. Therefore, I am rest assured that all our challenges will be tackled in this New year by Almighty God.”
He also appealed to Nigerians to demonstrate more vigour and a renewed commitment to national unity and sustenance.
He said though Nigeria had always been having its challenges since pre-independence days, but stated that the widening disunity and insecurity have not assumed this frightening dimension, which it said called for concern and concerted efforts for the country to overcome and become stronger.
He implored Nigerians to shed all tendencies that could further widen the gulf of disunity among diverse ethnic and religious groups and perceive the present insecurity constituting a forlorn hope to all citizens as a collective battle that must be sustained and won at all cost.
