Be ready to make sacrifices to rescue the country from decay - Osinbajo tells Nigerians


The Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday urged Nigerians to be prepared to make sacrifices to rescue the country from decay and make it great.

He said this in his address at the Interdenominational Church Service to mark the 18th anniversary of unbroken democracy in the country and two years of Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

“This nation requires men and women prepared to make the sacrifices that will make it great.

“Those men may not be leaders, they may not even be politicians and they may not even be priests and men and women of God,’’ he said.

Osinbajo recalled the story of the good Samaritan in the Bible to illustrate his message.

According to him, the story is not how the victim was beaten up or a story of who to blame.

He said it was a story of how different people reacted“when they saw a bruised and dying man, and how it is peculiar when one sees a nation that needs to be helped’’.

He recalled that a priest and then a Levite who was a ruler, politician and leader passed by and did not assist the victim.

He said the devout people were the men that Jesus spoke about in the story of the Good Samaritan, who could sacrifice and show compassion for the healing of the nation.

According to the Acting President, such people are found everywhere as teachers, doctors, young graduates whether employed of not who are ready to do something that will help the nation.

He said such Nigerians should stand against corruption and should not allow the nation to be ripped by fraud.

Osinbajo urged the people to be prepared to make such sacrifices when fighting corruption because the vice would also fight them back.

He, however, noted that there were people ready to take the risk in spite of the circumstances and difficulties.

He reminded the people that if they wanted to make the country to become a better place they must become like the good Samaritan.

“Whether you are small or big, a leader or a follower be prepared to make that sacrifice,’’ the acting president said.

Osinbajo then prayed for the healing of the country and President Muhammadu Buhari and that God should set the citizens apart to turn the nation around.

Earlier, the Founder of the Word Communications Ministries, Apostle Sunday Popoola, said that the country was in crisis because it lacked leadership for long.

He called for the strengthening of the country’s institutions, adding that the country’s responsibilities should meet with God’s ability for things to turn around.

The cleric said the people should first work hard and then pray to God rather than waiting for God to perform the magic for them.

He called on all to shun prejudices as the country was set to fulfil a divine purpose.

Popoola, who predicted that the nation would survive and become a world power in a few years, urged the people not to despair.

In the message, on the theme of the celebration `the dry bones shall live again’’ he said the amalgamation of Nigeria 100 years ago was part of the problems.

The cleric called on the government to revisit the decisions of the last national conference.

The Senator representing the FCT, Phillip Aduda, said the event was a milestone and congratulated the citizenry for sustaining democracy.

Aduda represented President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki at the event that was also attended by Speaker, House of Reps, Yakubu Dogara, CJN Walter Onnoghen and top government and military officials.

  3. Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
    to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
    because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
    wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
    the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
    especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
    dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
    relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wantve him all to
    myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
    saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
    were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
    right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
    we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
    on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
    better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
    relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
    went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
    took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
    disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
    running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
    my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
    to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
    thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
    alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
    Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
    that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
    love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
    now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
    month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
    between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
    have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
    my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
    my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
    in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
    and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his
    website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him
    direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you
    Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
    social media or place i may go to.
