President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said that Nigeria will emerge better and stronger from it’s current socioeconomic situation.
Buhari stated this in a message to the 7th National Prayer Breakfast titled; “A tree and it’s fruits, is yours a blessing or a curse”.
The President, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal, said leaders in the country must strive to be a light to the people they lead.
He said, “As leaders we must strive to be the light of the world, we must resist to talk about our current socioeconomic situation with despondency.
“As for me, I have complete faith that Nigeria will emerge from this crisis strong, united, prosperous and secured.
“I believe that all these will come to fruition in the life time of this government, the life time of this executives, legislature and the judiciary.”
In a sermon, Rev. Abu Banko defined a politician as a model for all citizens, adding that a politician must be ready to give not steal from the nation.
He said that a politician should also be ready to promote the general welfare of the people, and help raise their standard of living.
Banko, therefore, urged all public office holders, including civil servants, lawmakers and those in the executive, to lead Nigeria to its destiny.
He prayed God to guide them steer the affairs of the nation with love, humility and sacrifice.
Banko urged all Nigerians to be humble, turn away from sins and seek the face of God, so as to end current problems in the country.
