God did not make a mistake in putting Nigeria together, says Osinbajo
The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, and Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari have called for more prayers and unity of the country for the nation to attain greater heights.
Both made the call during the breaking of fast by Muslims, Iftar, in association with the Christian faithful at the Conference Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
The event was at the instance of the Wife of the President to bring the Muslim and Christian faithful together in other to achieve greater unity among the various religious organisations in the country.
The Acting President in his remark declared that the future of the country was greater than its present and he looked forward to that future.
He said the country required men and women who could do greater things for the nation at this time and not those spreading hate against others.
According to him a lot of the hate notions being spread were used to advance the interests of the preachers only rather than the interest of the country.
“Any time people operate along the law of unity, they will achieve more.
“Our country is about people who God put together so that we can build a country that will be a pride to the world,’’ Osinbajo said.
He said God did not make a mistake in putting the country together and urged all Nigerians to always remember that the nation was meant to be a weapon in God’s hands for Him to do greater things for the people.
The Acting President noted that hate only appealed to the lowest people adding that the motives behind hate were both faulty and hypocritical.
Osinbajo thanked the President's wife for putting the Iftar together to celebrate the unity of purpose of the people irrespective of religious or ethnic persuasions.
The President's wife who was represented by the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, spoke of the benefits of fasting for the spiritual and physical development of the individual.
She urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their prayers for the country and thanked them for their prayers for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.
