"At this stage of our existence, we are not uninformed of some challenges which have weighed us down. But, we will not despair for as the great Martin Luther King Jnr said, “we must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope”, the lawmaker representing Ikwuano Umuahia North/South Federal Constituency stated in a press release on  the occasion of the anniversary.

The lawmaker who is also APC's Senatorial Candidate for Abia Central Senatorial district for the 2023 polls added:  "Nation-building is a process, and while our journey has been beleaguered by challenges such as disruption in education, unemployment, economic downturn, terrorism, climate change, collapsing infrastructures, and many more, these are challenges we have continued to surmount over the years with resilience.

"As we celebrate Nigeria at 62 today, let us now more than ever strengthen our resolve to continue to build a nation of prosperity where peace and justice reigns. Let us not shy away from our challenges, but face them head-on with awareness, a sense of responsibility, and unity of purpose. 

"Happy Independence Day Nigeria. It is my sincerest wish that together, we will build a nation that we will be proud of", he stated
