President Jonathan has again reassured Nigerians that the country will overcome all its challenges and obstacles it may be passing through at the moment stressing it has been so for most developed countries of the world before now.
The president made the remark at the Winners Chapel, Goshen City, along Nasarawa Road, where he worshipped yesterday Sunday with some members of the Federal Executive Council.
Jonathan said, “I assure you this country will cross the bridge. Yes, we have challenges as a nation, even the most developed nations had passed through stages in the past even more challenging than we face today but what happened on Saturday in South Africa will be the story of this nation.
“Those of you who watched that match would know that it was not easy at the beginning, it was as if Nigeria was going to be demolished but all of a sudden the young men came very strong and we won.
“That is how it will be with the story of this country with your prayers and commitment we will get to the destination. The promised land has never been an easy one for any nation, it was not easy for the Israelites and I promise that myself and my colleagues will continue to do what is right for this country.
Presiding Bishop, David Abioye remarked during his sermon that the nation’s leaders were human, and that it was only prayers that would make them abide by the will of God.
According to Bishop Abioye, “Our leaders are human, they are not angels, it is prayer that makes them to abide by the will of God. As we keep praying, God keeps guiding our leaders. When we pray they gravitate towards what is good. That’s why the church must keep praying. They are guided by our prayers. They are the targets of the enemy.
“When a leader makes a wrong decision, the whole people will be affected. Our leaders will not make wrong decisions. I want to, at this time on the behalf of the church, commend our President on one of the most recent decisions that he has taken. And that’s on signing the bill against same-sex marriage”, he added.
