President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, Friday, said that the 10th National Assembly will produce a constitution that will take into cognisance the collective aspirations of Nigerians, shape, unite and accelerate the development of the country.

Akpabio gave the assurance while delivering his remarks at the beginning of a 2 Day retreat of the House of Representatives committee on the review of the 1999 constitution of Nigeria organized by Policy and Legal Advocacy Center (PLAC) and United Kingdom International Development in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State.

The Senate President urged the federal lawmakers to be thorough in the ongoing review of the constitution, stressing that every bill and proposal must receive the needed consideration.

Applauding the work of the House committee, Akpabio said that time has come for Nigerians to take their destiny into their hands.

He said: “I believe that at the end of the day, the Senate and the House of Representatives will create a blueprint that guides us towards a more united and prosperous Nigeria. This journey has just begun in this retreat. So, ladies and gentlemen, the challenges before us are significant, but so are the opportunities.

This opportunity is to ensure that the bills, all bills we consider and comprehend are fair, reflective of the aspiration of the Nigerian people.

We must take into account the diverse perspectives and experiences that make up our great nation. By doing so, we lay a solid foundation for a constitution that truly represents the hope and dreams of every single Nigerian alive.

“Distinguished brothers and sisters, now is the time for us to take our destiny in our hands. Change will not occur if we passively wait for someone else or for another institution or for a different time to undertake this venture with all the power to bring about a change ourselves and change the purpose, trajectory of our new country.

We are the ones our country had been waiting for. We are the embodiment of the change our country needs.
