The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has called on Christians not to seek revenge, no matter the circumstances they find themselves, saying they should come together to build a united country.
He, however, expressed optimism that God would guide the country to the Promised Land of recovery, restoration and rejoicing.
The Vice-President, represented by the Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Joseph Malomo, said this on Sunday night in Abuja during the 2016 National Open Day of the Nigeria Fellowship of Evangelical Students with the theme, “Raising nation builders on campus.”
According to him, Nigeria needed a tribe of men and women of all faith and ethnicity, that are firmly committed to high values of integrity, hard work, justice and love of country.
Osinbajo said, “This new tribe of Nigerians should stick together, and fight the national ills side by side. NIFES can lead in that challenging effort; in that mission, God is always on our side. Christian groups in the country have a role to play in nation building and raising competent leaders.
“As believers, one of the key lessons to learn and pass on as we raise nation builders is about Christian values of love and peace.”
