Senator Hope Uzodimma representing Imo West Senatorial District in the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly has urged Nigerians to pray for peace, unity and prosperity of the country in the New Year.

In a goodwill message to Nigerians in the New Year, Uzodimma urged them to imbibe the culture of love, peace and good neighbourliness as the cardinal principle of co-existence.

He said peace was needed in the country at the moment to save Nigeria from the precipice occasioned by insurgency  and  enjoined Nigerians to work to reinforce the bonds of love and unity, which are needed for meaningful national development and global peace.

Uzodimma who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Aviation said it was only in an atmosphere of peace and love that Nigeria could achieve the desired greatness.

The Senator while appealing to Nigerians to use the New Year to offer special prayers for all those who have suffered and continued to suffer untold hardship, deprivation and death in the hands of terrorists and insurgents also called for prayers for the country’s gallant soldiers and security agents who remain at the forefront of the national effort to overcome terrorism and violent extremism.

He called for tolerance and forgiveness among Nigerians as panacea to the security threat in the country and urged them to renew their commitment to the service of God and humanity.

On the activities of his Committee in the New Year, the Chairman assured Nigerians that the committee would ensure the safety of Nigeria’s airspace and the comfort of air travelers at the country’s airports in 2016 and beyond.

According to him, the Committee would in the New Year ensure that the various government agencies in the aviation sector lived up to their responsibilities to make the Nigerian aviation sector comparable to others in the world.

He said the committee would constantly monitor activities of the government agencies in the aviation sector to ensure that the right things were done for the good of the sector.

Uzodimma said the budget proposals submitted by the various agencies in the sector would be prudently scrutinized in such a manner that it would not allow for duplication of projects from various sources of revenue  so as to get value for money.
