Apparently leveraging the timely passage of 2020 budget by the 9th National Assembly, Senate President Ahmed Lawan is optimistic that the year 2020 would "usher in robust peace and economic growth for the benefit of all Nigerians." The Senate President stated this in a seven-paragraph statement released by his Special Assistant (Media),Ola Awoniyi recently. Entitled: '2020 will usher into Nigeria robust peace and economic growth', the Yobe-born National Assembly chief executive re-emphasized the recurring decimal which has turned out to be a common feature in his epoch-making speeches in recent time, commending the "resilience of Nigerians in their commitment to the unity and prosperity of the country and support for the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari."

Substantiating his claims with empirical evidence, he quipped, inter alia: "…with the timely passage of the budget and restoration of the January to December financial year and amendments recently made to our laws by the ninth National Assembly, the economy will enjoy significant growth in the New Year." …Deputy Senate President Omo-Agege tasks Nigerians on diversity, unity In a related development, the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has stressed the need for Nigerians to "…build bridges of friendship across political, ethnic and religious lines."

In a 12-paragraph press statement signed by him, the No. 2 Principal Officer in the Senate pointed out that now ''is a time of rebirth and optimism'' and was upbeat that if Nigerians work resolutely as one, the challenges facing the country would be surmounted. Logically defending the attribute of diversity as the positive benchmark for the nation's unity, Omo-Agege urged Nigerians to ''recognize the beautiful and positive diversity of our nation, embrace vital truth that our diversity is our strength."

He re-echoed his passionate appeal to Nigerians on the state of the nation, by calling for "continued support for the President Buhari-led Administration in not only maintaining the unity of the country but also delivering on the Next Level Agenda." Emphasizing on unity as his central message, Omo-Agege, who is reputed for outspokenness on issues of national importance, stated in unmistakable terms that "let us devote our hearts and energies to those things, and they are many, that unite us, that hold us forth as the largest black nation of the world. We must explore, exploit and dwell on them for our common good."
