Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, December 31, 2016 | 5:32:00 PM

Immediate past President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has tasked the present administration to review and strengthen its agenda towards addressing the unabating issues of hunger, poverty and insecurity in order to get the nation out of the woods in 2017.

 In the same token, Senator Mark urged Nigerians not to despair on the account of the Socio-Economic and  security  challenges chief of which is the incessant farmers/herdsmen  clashes as well as ethno- religious conflicts of the past years but to renew hope in the New Year.
 Senator Mark in a goodwill message to Nigerians marking the New Year, noted that inspite of the difficulties of the past years, 2017 promises to be a year of greater hopes and possibilities for citizens.

 He reiterated that the challenges posed by the unimaginable  harsh economic recession, insecurity, unemployment, hunger and youth restiveness, could be addressed if the right steps are taken.

 As an answer to the challenges, Senator Mark reiterated the need to diversify the economy and place priority on agriculture and manufacturing because “no nation ever survives or develops relying on a mono product for its economy”.
Agriculture and manufacturing , he added have the twin advantages of ensuring food security and creating  employment opportunities for the citizenry.

The former Senate helmsman urged for synergy between  and among the three arms of government in the task of salvaging the Socio-economic situation stressing " all hands must be on deck to fashion out a blueprint out of the economic quagmire irrespective of party affiliation".

 To this end, Senator Mark tasked the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government to look beyond party leanings and enlist credible and capable Nigerians on board to  get the nation out of the woods.

 He  also challenged State Governments to identify and develop mineral resources as well as other areas where they have comparative advantages in order to contribute their quota to National development.

According to Mark, “every State of the Federation has got one or two mineral resources that needs to be tapped to boost our economy. If every state develops or improves on areas of comparative advantages and contributes same to National development, our economic recovery would be faster than expected.

 “We can effectively harness our natural and human resources and come out of the woods in no distant time.”
