On the current economic challenges facing the country, Senator Wamakko expressed confidence that all that will be the thing of the past,even as he said, is a global phenomenon.

He charged all to join hands to make Nigeria a better and prosperous nation.

He also called on the importation of the products rather than exportation for economic growth of the nation.
