Senate President David Mark yesterday reminded Nigerians of the need to maintain a harmonious relationship with one another irrespective of ethnic or religious inclinations.
This, he said, is the needed elixir for maintaining peace, unity and progress in the country.
In a goodwill message to Nigerians to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival, Senator Mark noted that there is no problem too difficult for the nation to overcome if we all unite and maintain the sanctity of our brotherhood.
He stated that the issue of insecurity could easily be tackled “if we confront it with a single purpose, honesty and unwavering commitment.
“Government has all it takes to tackle this problem, but government cannot make the needed impact if the people fail to cooperate. It requires all the arsenal and goodwill of the citizens to fight”.
Mark added that the National Assembly would continue to play its role by providing the necessary legislative framework for the executive arm of government to function effectively.
On the 2015 general election, the senate president warned against turning the nation into a battle field in the desperation to clinch political offices.
