The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has come out to hail Nigerians as they prepare to witness the country’s 60th Independence Anniversary.
He recently revealed that the nation has come a long way and has overcome many challenges, so things will surely get better in the end.
According to him, we must pay massive respect to past heroes who made sacrifices for the country to become what it is today.
He added that even if it is true that our country has not always lived up to our expectations, all our problems are still very fixable.
His words, “Nigeria has come a long way and has overcome many challenges in the past 60 year, things are going to get better.”
“Nigeria’s heroes, who made sacrifices for the country to become what it is today”.
“We all love our country Nigeria. Yet the truth is that our country has not always lived up to our expectations, and sometimes, it is hard not to be overcome by despair about the fact of where we are and the perils on the horizon. I want you to know that things are going to get better.
“I hold in my heart the abiding truth that there is nothing wrong with our country that cannot be fixed by what is right about our country – and there is nothing more righteous about Nigeria than its people.
“We are the ones who will save ourselves to attain the lofty heights of our national anthem and make for our children a nation where peace and justice reign.”
