Vice President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Elder Joseph Otubu, has called on Nigerians to be patient with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking at the Mass Choir Fiesta of the Motailatu Church, Cherubim and Seraphim Worldwide (MCCSW), at the International Headquarters Ajah in Lagos on Saturday, Otubu urged Nigerians not to relent in prayer for the country, adding that “the President is working very hard for the good of all.
“We must not confess negatively for this country, because all over the world people are experiencing economic punch, so Nigeria is not an exception. Let’s continue to pray for the best, for our political leaders to be honest so that the money that is meant for the masses will be spent for the masses.”
The host who is the Prelate and Spiritual Leader, MCCSW, Elder Isreal Akinadewo, in his welcome address, said it was important for Nigerians to commit their ways to the Lord.
“He is the builder of our lives; the midwife of our deliveries; the initiator and executor of our plans and the progenitor of our existence. God is being praised today for perfecting every good thing for us,’’ he said.
The Chairman, Lagos State Chapter of CAN, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said the amount of money embezzled by past administrations could have been used to foster programmes that would develop the country and engage restive youths meaningfully.
“At the political realm, accountability is important; probity is important; and people should not just take people for a ride and think that they are there and they can do what they like,’’ he said.
