Nigeria Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that Nigeria need urgent intervention to avoid breakup.
Speaking by his representative, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, at a church service held to commemorate Nigeria’s 60th Independence anniversary at the National Ecumenical Centre in Abuja on Sunday, 27th October, according to a report by Punch newspaper.
Yemi Osinbajo who use Nehemiah in the bible to describe Nigeria situation, said; “Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken but there are obvious cracks that could lead to a break if not properly addressed.
“Nehemiah started with fervent prayers, seeking the face of God and pleaded with his king to allow him return to Jerusalem to rebuild the broken walls because wall signifies peace, security, contentment and prosperity. It signifies the essence of the state of the nation.
“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 said.
