Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Friday said leaders in the country are also affected by the current economic recession.
The Senate President said this on Friday while addressing State House correspondents after observing the Juma’at prayer at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
He also urged Nigerians to pray for the country.
The Senate President said, “Once again, as a country in this period, we will continue to pray. On Sunday, the day of Arafat, we offer prayers for our leaders and the President so that we can do what is right, because we feel the pain.
“We know what the country is going through because there is no Nigerian with blood flowing through his veins that will not know that things are difficult now; and we pray that with God’s guidance, He will see us through.”
Saraki expressed optimism that the country would soon come out of recession.
Saraki said, “With prayer, Insha Allahu, we will overcome it (economic recession). The most important thing is for us to stay together and give the President support and continue to believe in this great country that we all have and be rest assured that we will all weather the storm and scale through together.”
