He stressed that as a nation, “we must learn from our past civil strife which  left Nigeria backward  economically and politically”.
The Senate Presiednt admonished the citizenry of the need to live in  harmony with one another, “we must learn from our past mistakes, everything that happens, God has a purpose for it. It could be  a test of our faith. This trying times  i am sure would  soon be over.

“No matter our challenges, we must leave the fight for God and believe in ourself as a nation.”
