Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has called on Nigerians to intensify prayers for the country and look to the future with optimism in 2013.
In his New Year message, the Speaker said 2013 offers Nigerians a new opportunity to renew their faith in the country and at the same time a new prospect to aspire for a united and progressive nation.
The Speaker in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, said the challenges that confronted the country, especially in the last two years would be surmounted in the New Year if Nigerians unite with a common goal.
According to him, Nigeria is a beautiful country whose full potential remains untapped. "My hope and prayer is that we all experience a peaceful and prosperous New Year for our country and for people," the Speaker stated.
While reassuring Nigerians that the House of Representatives would continue on its chosen path of putting the country first at all times, Tambuwal prayed to God to continue to bless Nigeria and Nigerians in the New Year and beyond.
