President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday assured Nigerians that the country will emerge stronger, better and prosperous from the current economic challenges.
The President gave the assurance in a message to the 7th National Prayer Breakfast meeting, titled; “A tree and it’s fruits, is yours a blessing or a curse”.
Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, Buhari said leaders in the country must strive to be a light to the people they lead.
He said, “As leaders we must strive to be the light of the world, we must resist to talk about our current socioeconomic situation with despondency.
“As for me, I have complete faith that Nigeria will emerge from this crisis strong, united, prosperous and secured.
“I believe that all these will come to fruition in the life time of this government, the life time of this executives, legislature and the judiciary.”
This is coming at a time when the Federal Government directed the immediate release of N65 billion for the take-off of its National Social Investment Programme.
