President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that the proposed 2017 Appropriation Bill would take Nigeria out of its current economic woods. The President made the disclosure in a special Eid-el Maulud message to Nigerians, stating that with collective dedication and hard work, Nigerians will in 2017 overcome the economic difficulties, and to the path of prosperity.
The President’s message stated, “Again the calendar of life has brought us into another period of celebration, and deep reflection. Celebration, because we are marking the birth of Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him), and deep reflection, because it is another opportunity of pausing, taking a deep breath and reflecting on the current realities before us.
“First of all, I wish all Muslims a happy and memorable celebration of the birth of the great Prophet, through whose teachings, particularly on peaceful living, tolerance, sobriety, generosity, sacrifice and honesty, and wisdom, the nation has gained immensely in building a harmonious and prosperous society. The universal truths of the Prophet’s values remain unchanged.
President Buhari therefore enjoined Nigerians not to allow the reality of the temporary challenges to undermine their hope or reverse the collective will to succeed.
