Written by on November 20, 2017

Members of the Senate under the auspices of the Southern Senators’ Forum have expressed their commitment to ensuring an equitable, progressive and prosperous Nigeria.

 

The Chairman of the forum, Senator Hope Uzodinma, in a statement on Sunday, said the lawmakers would continue to canvass for lasting solutions to issues affecting Nigerians, irrespective of their ethnicity or religion.

 

According to him, the forum has scheduled a retreat for this month to discuss national issues, including the protection of ethnic minorities in the country. Uzodinma added that issues for discussion at the retreat would also include the imperative of restructuring in a multi-religious country as Nigeria and the role of the legislature in a constitutional democracy.

 

The senator stressed that the sustenance of national unity in a restructured Nigeria would equally be discussed.
