President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki on Friday assured that Nigeria would overcome the current economic recession, and called on the citizens to be patient.

Speaking to State House correspondents  after observing Jumaat Prayer with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja‎, Saraki said even leaders of the country are hit by the current economic hardship.

“With prayer Insha Allahu, we will overcome it (economic recession). The most important thing is for us to stay together and give the President support and continue to believe in this great country that we all have and be rest assured that we will all weather the storm and scale through together.

“Once again, as a country in this period, we will continue to pray. On Sunday, the day of Arafat, we offer prayer for our leaders and President so that we can do what is right, because we feel the pain. We know what the country is going through.

“Because there is no Nigerian with blood flowing through that will not know that things are difficult now and we pray that with God’s guidance, He will see us through. Once we resume, we will continue to play our own role to ensure that things get better,” he said.
