In his New Year message issued in Abuja and signed by his Special

Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Imam Imam, the Speaker said the coming of the new year, which will signal the rebirth of new hopes and aspirations, should be used by all Nigerians to return to their roots and revive the age-long tradition of communal harmony built on deference for elders and unconditional love and concern for the young.

Part of the statement made available to P.M.NEWS reads: “A society cannot be said to be making progress if it loses its moral fabric. For centuries, communities and people of Nigeria have prospered largely due to the harmonious nature of their society.

“As we enter the New Year, we should all reflect on these virtues so as to fast track the return of peace and stability to our dear nation.

While wishing Nigerians a happy New Year, Tambuwal assured the people that the House of Representatives will take the lead in efforts to find lasting solutions to the socio-economic challenges confronting the country.

Tambuwal said the last months of 2011 have seen rise in cases of insecurity in Nigeria. He however reiterated that the challenges are temporary and that the country would soon pass the phase.

“Nigeria is a country destined for greatness. While the cases of insecurity have been a source of concern for the country, I believe it is a period we would soon leave behind,” the Speaker added.
