Present cracks may lead to Nigeria’s breakup says Vice President while speaking ahead of the independence day coming up on Thursday
Osinbajo gave the warning on Sunday in Abuja at an interdenominational church service to commemorate Nigeria’s 60th Independence anniversary.
He was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, at the National Ecumenical Centre, where the anniversary service held.
He said Nigeria may break up if efforts are not made to address the cracks/issues.
Gracing the occassion were representatives of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Head of Service of the Federation, Folashade Yemi-Esan; permanent secretaries, military officials, members of the diplomatic community and other senior government officials.
He made a biblical reference to the story of Nehemiah in the bible.
“The story should be a challenge to every Christian in Nigeria.
It’s only that kind of Nehemiah’s love that will make us, as Nigerians, to rebuild the cracks we have in our walls today.
“…There’s an urgent need for a Nehemiah in our country, Nigeria, today.
And like Nehemiah faced opposition in his efforts to rebuild the walls, any Nigerian that desires to rebuild Nigeria must also be ready to face stiffer opposition which will come in torrents. It can only be diffused by consistent focus and prayers.”
He nevertheless, expressed optimism that Nigeria could be heralding a rebirth through the 60th anniversary saying, “no group is more prepared for this task than our religious bodies.”
