Remain Steadfast, Osinbajo Urges Christians Hours to Presidential Election

Prof. Yemi Osinbajo

Nigeria Vice President who doubles as the running mate of President Mohammadu Buhari,  Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has called on Christians to remain steadfast stating that “their prayers will make the difference for Nigeria.”
The Vice President stated this in Jos at a one-day special prayer forum for a peaceful 2019 elections in Plateau and Nigeria in general.
The one day programme was Organized by the Plateau State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
According to him, “The devil cannot interfere in the plans and purposes of God in our lives or in the life of our nation, it is impossible. There is no way the gates of hell can ever prevail against the church because the church represents God’s plans and purposes on earth”.
Prof. Osinbajo added that the role of the church in the development of any society is for Christians to support their members in leadership positions through prayers and fasting.
“The role of the church in order to bring about the plans and purposes of God to pass in our nation is to fast and pray for those that are in government. God’s plans and purposes for this nation rest on the shoulders of the Children of God,” the Vice President noted.
Continuing, he stated that “it is your prayers that will make the difference for our nation. I want to say to you again that please continue to pray and to fast for those of us who are in government because we are there as the seeds that God has planted in this nation; we are the salt, we may not be plenty but salt does not have to be a lot to make a difference.”
The Vice President, who admonished Christians to look inward for solutions to the problems of the nation, said: “If we look elsewhere we will make a very big mistake.”
“We are the ones that can individually solve the problems of Nigeria and we must not look elsewhere. If we do the right thing, we will get the right result and if we do what is not right we will not get the right result,” the Vice President declared.
