We’ll overcome this hardship, Saraki assures Nigerians
The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has pleaded with Nigerians to bear with the Federal Government over the prevailing economic hardship and promised that the Senate will collaborate with the Presidency to find a quick solution to it.
The Senate president said during an interaction with newsmen yesterday while he was on an unscheduled inspection visit to the site of the proposed Sheik Muhammad Kamaldeen University, Ogidi, Ilorin, that the noticeable improvement in this month’s revenue allocations to states from the federation account was pleasing, and everything should be done to sustain the tempo.
“I am confident that almost all local governments should be able to pay full salaries to their workers in the country. The message is to ensure through oversight function that we ensure the executive gets all revenue due to it,” he said.
Saraki said the prevailing economic situation had been a trying one for the country and all over the world but that leaders must take on the challenge.
“It’s been a very difficult period for all of us in Nigeria and all over the world but that is not the issue because that is why we as leaders were voted for and we must take on the challenge, work hard and think out of the box,” he said.
He assured of adequate support to make the dreams of establishing the Sheikh Muhammed Kamaldeen University a reality.
