The statement issued on his behalf by his chief press secretary, Mr. Henry Ugbolue envisaging hope for the country in 2005 said "Nigerians will walk tall, with bounce in their gaits, dreams in their eyes, smiles on their faces and hope in their being"

The statement quoted the Senate President as observing that the envisaged rejuvenation would not come cheap charging that "the task of making the nation the pride of Africa is a collective one," urging further that ""patriotism, hard work and the fear of God in the new year,"" would help realize the dreams of success.
