The President made this known in his 2016 Eid-El-Maulud message to the nation.

The message was made available to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday.

According to him, Federal Government is determined to overcome the mountain of economic difficulties, and return the nation to the path of prosperity.

“As we look forward to 2017 with hope and huge expectations, let me assure you that with collective dedication and hard work, we will overcome the mountain of economic difficulties, and return our country to the path of prosperity.

“The 2017 Budget proposals which I will lay before the National Assembly on Wednesday, will contain measures that we are confident will get the nation out of its economic woods.’’

The President, who wished all Muslims a happy and memorable celebration of the birth of the great Prophet, urged Nigerians not to lose faith in the ability of his administration to make a difference in their lives.

“Against all odds, we have used these pillars of strength in securing a just and fair society, and our efforts are beginning to yield dividends in curbing terrorism, militancy, corruption and other crimes that devalue our humanity.

“As we use the memorable occasion of this celebration to reflect on our current challenges, I urge you not to lose faith in the ability of this administration to make a difference in the lives of our people,’’ he added.

President Buhari maintained that the reality of “the temporary challenges should not undermine our hope, reverse our collective will to succeed, or divide us; rather it should remind us of why we need to stay together, fight together and succeed together.

“We all share a vision of a better Nigeria, and we will all share in the responsibility of building the country of our dreams.

“As we celebrate and reflect, I wish all Nigerians a peaceful Eid-el-Maulud.’’
