NIGERIA HAS CRACK IN ITS WALLS – VICE PRESIDENT, YEMI OSINBAJO
Nigeria’s Vice President, Oluyemi Osinbajo, on Sunday, September 27, 2020, said Nigeria currently has cracks in its walls.
The Vice-President, who said the cracks signifies the nation’s present situation, made this known while speaking at an interdenominational church service to commemorate Nigeria’s 60th independence anniversary in Abuja, where he was ably represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.
He compared Nigeria’s situation to the biblical story of Nehemiah who prayed to God when he faced some challenges whilst returning to Jerusalem.
“The story should be a challenge to every Christian in Nigeria. It’s only that kind of Nehemiah’s love that will make us, as Nigerians, to rebuild the cracks we have in our walls today.
“For us in Nigeria, Nehemiah should be taken as a metaphor for those Nigerians who either reside in Nigeria or outside, to cry to God to use the abandoned opportunities in Nigeria to address our challenges of nation building.
“Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken but there are obvious cracks that could lead to a break if not properly addressed,” he said.
