Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has predicted that the country shall soon overcome the present challenges and the biting economic recession.
He said this at the Minna Choral Society (MCS) 8th annual Festival of Songs and Concert, in Minna, Niger State capital.
He, however said that strict adherence to divine instructions is the panacea to bailing the country out of the present recession.
Drawing inference from the theme of the concert, “More than Conquerors”, the Vice President said, “in all our numerous challenges, we are more than conquerors. We will overcome our challenges and difficulties”.
Osinbajo noted that despite the challenges being faced as a nation, “God still loves this country so much that He will not let us down. We can count on God no matter the situation”.
Citing from Romans 8:37, the Vice President said that he was convinced that no situation will make Nigeria go down but advised that obedience to divine instructions is a guarantee for victory over the current challenges.
Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, who was also in attendance at the concert, challenged all to imbibe the teachings of God as prescribed in the holy books for the country to experience a turning point.
“Are we practising what is in the holy books? Are we our brother’s keeper? It is only when this is done that we can make a turning point in this country and make our country crisis free.”
Gov. Bello decried the deteriorating state of morality in youths and called on all youths to shun every act that will undermine the existence of the nation.
He assured them of his determination to give them opportunities to express their God-given talents.
He then commended the choristers and urged them to use the opportunity provided by MCS as a foundation for a greater tomorrow.
