Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan and governor of Delta state, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, Sunday called for concerted efforts by Nigeria to make the country more progressive.
They spoke at the Mother of the Redeemer Catholic Church, Effurun, during a thanksgiving service by deputy president of the senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
They said with collective efforts and determination, Nigeria would be better.
Specifically, Osinbajo said, “with the steadfastness in the senate, we will get it right in the country.
“Omo-Agege is committed and we thank God that we are here with our brother to celebrate.”
Lawan, while lauding Omo-Agege for his ‘courage’, said, “as a diverse people with different ethnic and religious backgrounds, we should work together to make Nigeria better.”
On his part, Okowa said there was a lot of work to be done and stressed that while Nigerians should be committed to serving God, they should also be committed to serving the nation.
“Today is a big day not just for you, Senator Omo-Agege, but for the people of Delta central and the entire state.
“Whatever you are was made possible by God and we thank you for remembering to appreciate God because it is never late to give thanks to God.
“There is a lot of work to be done in our state and the country; we should render service to God and mankind.
“I urge Deltans in the National Assembly to bring the much you can to Delta even as you work for our nation for it to be progressive,” he said.
