“Mr. President, as usual, responded by telling us that the economy is in a bad shape and we have to come together and think and rethink on way forward.
“So, Mr. President talked to us in the manner that we have a task ahead of us. So, we should tighten our belts and see how we can put Nigerian economy in the right direction and how we can address the nation’s infrastructural decay.
“So, all of us as leaders especially those that are coming to the National Assembly and those coming back as governors and the president who will be re-elected by God’s grace we should not think that things are going to be easy.
