The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has urged Nigerians to pray so as to keep the country from breaking up due to existing cracks in the nations walls.
The VP said this at the National Ecumenical Centre Abuja, through his representative, Boss Mustapha on Sunday.
The service was held to mark the 60th Anniversary Celebrations of Nigeria’s Independence Day.
“Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken but there are obvious cracks that could lead to a break if not properly addressed.”
“Nehemiah started with fervent prayers, seeking the face of God and pleaded with his king to allow him return to Jerusalem to rebuild the broken walls because wall signifies peace, security, contentment and prosperity. It signifies the essence of the state of the nation.”
“There’s an urgent need for a Nehemiah in our country, Nigeria, today. And like Nehemiah faced opposition in his efforts to rebuild the walls, any Nigerian that desires to rebuild Nigeria must also be ready to face stiffer opposition which will come in torrents. It can only be diffused by consistent focus and prayers,” he said.
