Only a peaceful and united Nigeria can experience infrastructural development and economic growth -Tambuwal

July 27, 2013 |

Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has called on Nigerians to exercise patient with the National Assembly on the ongoing constitutional amendment exercise, saying that only a peaceful and united Nigeria can experience infrastructural development and massive economic growth.

The Speaker said the controversy currently greeting certain votes in favour of some particular clauses of the country’s constitution was healthy for Nigeria’s budding democracy.

He said, “it is also incumbent on us to take cognisance of the fact that between stubborn defence of position and fearless discussions, there is a nexus of understanding; and that nexus is that Nigeria must be kept as one”.

Tambuwal, while speaking at a Ramadan lecture organised by Muslim and Christian Youth Forum in Kaduna, urged the youth, especially Muslims in the country to eschew violence and avail themselves of the spiritual opportunity provided by the Ramadan period to imbibe certain virtues that will guide them towards living decent lives.

Represented at the event by his Senior Special Assistant on youth development, Mohammed Etsu Umar, the speaker enjoined the youth to pray for peace as well as the unity of the nation, even as he observed that “only a peaceful and united Nigeria can experience infrastructural development and massive economic growth, the type that no country has ever witness in this21st century, given that the country is blessed with enormous natural and human resources”.
