Vice-president Professor Osinbajo has said Nigeria has gone forward and it is moving forward. Osinbajo spoke yesterday during the thanksgiving service at the Olive Tree Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lagos. He asked the congregation if they knew that God made a promise to the nation which was that Nigeria would be great and made the same promise to them as individuals. He said: “This country has gone forward and it is going to keep moving forward.”
Osinbajo recalled that while he was praying recently, the Lord reminded him of something he asked him to do on the eve of the 2015 Presidential election. He said that God asked him to take the communion because he was crossing over and when he did (take the communion) He took him through the journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. He said God reminded him of what happened in that journey. He added that the first thing that happened was that God himself said if he took the children of Israel through the path where the Philistines lived, they would be afraid and would be asked to return to Egypt. He said that God rather took the people through the Red Sea.
Osinbajo said, “The reason I, Yemi Osinbajo, without asking for a position, was given the vice presidency of this nation is because God’s hand is in this business. And so, I am completely confident that despite where we are today, it is the dawn of a new beginning. It has begun to show and surely there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel. God knows that this country has a plan and purpose in Africa and in the world; the plan and purpose will never diminish or be cut short.”
