God Has Promised Us A New Nigeria – Vice President Yemi Osinbajo
The Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday expressed optimism that despite the challenges facing the nation, a new Nigeria was about to be born.
Osinbajo spoke at the Independence Day interdenominational church service at the National Christian Centre in Abuja.
At the event were the Chairman of the anniversary organising committee, Boss Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation; security chiefs; President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Supo Ayokunle, and Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, who represented the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
The Vice President said, “God has promised through the mouth of His trusted prophet that He is giving us a new Nigeria. May I announce to you today that God is ready to take us to the promised land. We must remember that the Almighty God is the builder of the nation. God controls the destiny of nations and its people.
“God has also promised us a new Nigeria, a peaceful Nigeria, a prosperous Nigeria, a Nigeria where justice, equity and fairness shall prevail, a united Nigeria, where the different tribes and tongues are not the reason for separation, but joyful textures of our togetherness. God is ready to fulfill his promise.
“Some are saying it is impossible, Nigeria cannot change, the ethnic and religious divisions are too deep, corruption cannot end, politicians are too selfish, too mischievous. Yet like Caleb and Joshua, if we declare that these problems are merely bread for us, a new Nigeria is here.”
Also at the event, a former head of state, Gen Yakubu Gowon (retd), called on Nigerians to salvage the nation from woes.
He said, “In the midst of the various inflicted challenges in Nigeria today, we can come together in the unity of faith to salvage the nation from its woes. I believe Nigeria is specially favoured by God and I am confident that God who preserved it in the past will do it again if only we can continue to fervently pray and do what is right and good before Him and fellowmen and women.”
