The 9th Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Senator Ahmad Lawan, has on Saturday declared that Nigeria can never turn to a failed state despite the utterances and predictions of "dooms-day prophets".
Sen. Lawan, made this statement while flagging off 2021 empowerment project to 2,000 beneficiaries of Katsina Central sponsored by Senator Kabir Barkiya who is representing the district.
He said the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari needs the support and prayers of Nigerians irrespective of their political affiliation or religious background.
"Those dooms-day prophets who were prophecing that Nigeria can never progress because of the present security situation across the country are missing the point because it can never be a fail state by the God grace.
