“I am quite aware that Nigeria like any other country is facing a lot of difficulties, most especially those of us here in Africa due to the global pandemic and I have no doubt in my mind, we have a country that is really focused, particularly that our people are resilient.

“We will rely on Nigerians to continue to support us and on our own part, we will continue to sponsor more bills.
