Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo said despite Nigeria’s troubled past and present, its future holds more peace and glory.
Osinbajo said this on Sunday during the interdenominational church service to mark the 62nd Independence Day at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja.
According to The Punch, Osinbajo said Nigerians stand at the gate of a new nation and the future of the country is that of Justice, equity, law and righteousness.
He said, “The future of Nigeria will be far more glorious, more peaceful than her past, and so it shall be for you too. Every year will be happier for you, more glorious, more prosperous and more peaceful, in Jesus’ name,” Osinbajo said in his address at the service.
He added, “We stand at the gates of a new nation and we see its lights shining bright. The nation of God’s promises, a nation of opportunities, of equity and justice, a secure and prosperous nation, a nation of laws and righteousness.
“Even if what we see today seems bleak, and dark, we are confident that God who owns the heavens and the earth will fulfil His promises concerning this nation.”
