“It is indeed a privilege and a joy to bring greetings to you on this marvelous Experience evening. There is no denying the fact that the year 2012 has been a challenging one for us all. Yet it is a testament to the indomitable spirit that characterises Nigeria and Nigerians that across the length and breadth of the nation, we still gather in our communities to thank God for his many mercies upon us,” he said.
