ABUJA, Acting Nigerian President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has urged Nigerians to be prepared to make sacrifices to rescue the country from decay and make it great.
In his address at the Inter-denominational Church Service here Sunday to mark the 18th anniversary of unbroken democracy in the country and two years of the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration, he said: This nation requires men and women prepared to make the sacrifices that will make it great. Those men may not be leaders, they may not even be politicians and they may not even be priests and men and women of God.”
Recalling the story of the good Samaritan in the Bible to illustrate his message, he said the story was not how the victim was beaten up or a story of who to blame but was a story of how different people reacted when they saw a bruised and dying man, and how it is peculiar when one sees a nation that needs to be helped”.
He said the people Jesus spoke about in the story were those who could sacrifice and show compassion for the healing of the nation. Such people are found everywhere as teachers, doctors, young graduates whether employed of not who are ready to do something that will help the nation, he added.
He said such Nigerians should stand against corruption and should not allow the nation to be ripped by fraud. Osinbajo urged the people to be prepared to make such sacrifices when fighting corruption because the vice would also fight back.
He, however, noted that there were people ready to take the risk in spite of the circumstances and difficulties.
Osinbajo also prayed for the healing of the country and President Muhammadu Buhari and that God should set the citizens apart to turn the nation around.
