He said the National Assembly would make laws that would make impact on Nigerians.
He said, “I am hopeful and confident that the future is very bright.
“In the next few years, things will be even better.
“It will not be business as usual. We will ensure that the National Assembly will be people-oriented and will make laws that will make impact on Nigerians.”
Also speaking in a separate interview, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, said the nation was progressing on the right path.
“We will make it by the grace of God. We are on the right path,” he simply said.
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, also told reporters that the nation had finally discovered that it had been on the wrong path for long.
He said the nation had finally moved to the right path.
“At 55, we have finally discovered that we are on the wrong road. We have finally moved to the road that leads to progress, hope, employment, prosperity and Nigeria will finally attain that greatness that God destined it for. We are on the way,” he said.
