Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says a new Nigeria is in the making, but it is currently covered by the clouds and travails which will certainly give way to a glorious and bright new morn of a new nation.
The Vice President said this on Friday at the National Prayer Breakfast in Abuja.
While he noted that the theme of the Prayer breakfast, the “Birth of a New Nation” was significant, the Vice President emphasized the need for collective prayers, faith, hope and action, adding that Nigeria would prevail over the challenges of today.
He said the National Prayer Breakfast comes at a time of great travail and tribulation for the nation: in the throes of a pandemic for well over a year, leading to a severe economic downturn, loss of jobs and livelihoods; and at a time the nation is climbing out of an unprecedented scale of insecurity, in different zones of the nation.
Vice President Osinbajo reminded Christian faithful “ that every time that a nation where the lives of the children of God is challenged, it is God’s call to His people to take action, emphasising that It is an opportunity for God to demonstrate that He is God over the nation.
Vice President Osinbajo thanked the Organisers, as Well As the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd.) whom he described as the “father of the Nigerian Prays movement.”
