The Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan has urged Nigerians to join hands with the Federal Government in the fight against banditry, terrorism, kidnapping and other challenges staring the country in the face.

Lawan made this call while speaking yesterday in Iyin Ekiti, in Irepodun Ifelodun Local Government Area of Ekiti State, where he was conferred with the chieftaincy title of Aare Akorewolu of Iyin Ekiti by Oluyin, Oba Adeola Adeniyi Ajakaye.

The President of the Nigeria Senate urged Nigerians to always view the country’s security challenges as a collective battle that must be won rather than a sectional one.

According to him, “The 9th Senate has done what we need to do to make Nigeria great. Our leaders who set a vision for the country came from different constituencies, backgrounds, religious inclinations, but they had a vision that Nigeria should be the best in Africa.

“Challenges were faced, but those leaders dealt with some of them and subdued them. Other subsequent leaders also had the vision to make Nigeria a country that will be progressive, develop.

“Today, we are facing some challenges. like our former leaders used to do, we are also dealing with these challenges. The present Senate is dealing with the challenges facing the country despite our political and religious differences.

“Now, we are facing security challenges all over the country. Political, religious, and traditional leaders must come together. Whether the problem is predominant in the Northwest or Northeast or Southwest or East, all hands must be on the deck to resolve all these challenges.

“As a matter of urgency, we should come together as a people and deal with these challenges, most of them if not all of them, and make Nigeria a great country. No part of Nigeria can entirely face the problems facing the country and tackle them all”.

He described Bamidele as a reliable politician, who values integrity, propriety, professionalism, and the development of the country, especially Ekiti State.

“Senate had passed a bill establishing Medical University here in Iyin Ekiti through a bill sponsored by Senator Bamidele. I will make sure I lobby President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the bill so that the university can take off in time”.
