A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Abia state, Chief Friday Nwosu says despite the challenges confronting the Nigeria, the country will continue to grow from strength to strength in her march to greatness.

In an interview with our correspondent on Nigeria’s 53rd Independence anniversary, Nwosu who is believed to nurse ambition for the Abia government house in 2015 further stated that Nigeria has made much progress since she became independent in 1960.

“Nigeria is a respected giant among the comity of nations. Without sounding immodest, we have made much progress since 1960. That we are still together as one country is still a great achievement to be celebrated. Although we are yet to realize our dreams, Nigeria is not where it used to be. Today, there are numerous developments in all sectors of the Nigerian economy. If you consider the fact that out of the 53 years of Independence, the military rule took a big chunk of it, you will agree with me that we will continue to grow from strength to strength.”

He appealed to Nigerians to have faith in the ability of the nation to realize the dreams of her founding fathers.

“Nigerians should have faith in their country, they should be patriotic. Everybody should see himself as a stakeholder who has a duty to make things work. We must strive to harness our potentials. No one can do it for us. Every country has one challenge or the other. The United States, Britain, Japan and other developed countries once passed through the same challenges we are currently facing. So, in no distant time, we will surmount these challenges.”

Nwosu who is also a legal practitioner expressed optimism that Nigeria will surmount her present challenges as it boasts of vast human and natural resources to do so.

On the much awaited national conference, he commended President Goodluck Jonathan for heeding the call of Nigerians to set up a national conference committee and described it as timely.
