A member of defuct 7th Assembly in the lower chamber who represented Ekiti North Federal Constituency 1, Hon Bimbo Daramola has given credit to the government of President Mohammadu Buhari, saying the change mantra has reflected positively on every aspect of our national life.

Adding his voice to Nigeria’s 55th independence anniversary, he said

Nigeria is still a work in progress and that the country will attain

her place of pride in spite of various obstacles it is facing.

This was contained in a signed statement obtained from his media aide,

Bayode Ayodele, Wednesday night.
According to the statement, ”President Buhari’s administration has

brought change in the country in all facets of our national life

through his anti- corruption crusade. This had tremendously and

positively reflected in the socio economic and political activities of

the country. As we all know, today marks 55 years of our independence

as a nation, I would like to say congratulations to us all. Through

thick and thin, we have built this country together. Through triumphs

and trials, we have developed a Nigerian identity in our own way.

Continuing, ”In truth, Nigeria is still a work in progress and we are

challenged everyday to keep building in spite of the various obstacles

that we face. Our strength has been in our diversity. If we look back

over the years, we can say confidently that there is every reason to

celebrate.
Without prejudice, the change Nigerians are witnessing from Buhari

brought a total rebirth to this nation. In the last 16 years, Nigeria

was virtually at a loss. Nigeria was virtually at a failure. Nigerians

virtually lost hope and confidence in government. Buhari brought the

lost hope and confidence. He started first with security. Ordered the

military to relocate to Maiduguri, Borno State, changed the service

Chiefs, charged the military to end the insurgency and they are

working. I commend our Armed Forces and security agencies for their

dedication and bravery in the face of grave danger, and in the name of

our collective liberty.”
The statement further stated, ”At 55, what our nation needs is sheer

commitment from all stakeholders to the course of a better Nigeria.

Nigeria will not be made great by Americans or Chinese, Nigeria will

be made great by Nigerians. Let the reawakening spread, be determined

to make your effort count in taking Nigeria to a greater height. Yes,

it is possible if we are responsible. With a focused leader which we

currently have at the centre who is known to be visionary; full of

capacity, competence and character, I assure Nigerians that when we

look back in few year to come we would be thankful that we kept the

faith. May God continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” The

statement concluded.
