The Speaker of the House of Representatives Abbas Tajudeen, has called on Nigerians to keep their hopes alive saying the country will be great again.

He made the call in a statement congratulating Nigerians on the country’s 63rd Independence.

In the statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Abdullahi Krishi on Saturday, he called on all citizens and compatriots to keep hope in the country alive, saying that doomsayers and pessimists would soon be disappointed.

He noted that despite the myriad of challenges facing Nigeria, the country, with its abundant human and natural resources, still has the prospects and potential to reclaim its leadership position in the comity of nations.

Abbas urged the organised labour under the auspices of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to shelve the plan to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike on Tuesday over issues bothering on welfare.

He said embarking on strike at this time would do the country no good, rather it would only aggravate the situation at hand.

He therefore pleaded with the organized labour to reason with the Federal Government and put the strike on hold by cooperating with the authorities so that all issues could be resolved amicably.
