Nigeria Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has gone spiritual over the deteriorating security situations in the country.

Naija News reports that Osinbajo on Sunday led a group of pastors in praying to God for an end to insurgent attacks and all forms of bloodshed in the country.

Osinbajo was a special guest where two churches were commissioned in Abuja on Sunday.

Addressing the Christian worshippers at the commissioning of the churches; All Saints Anglican Church Wuse Zone 5, and the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) City of David Parish, Utako, the vice president said the occasion must be seen as a call to the greater work of transforming the entire society.

The second citizen of the nation reiterates the Federal Government’s commitment to finding tenable solutions to the challenges confronting the country.

As it were in the Holy Bible, Osinbajo urged clergies and their congregants to fervently intercede for the nation to overcome these challenges.

Osinbajo’s first visit during the commissioning was the residence of the Archbishop Metropolitan and Primate of all Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Revd. Henry Ndukuba, Naija News understands.

Ndaukuba, assisted by Bishop of Kubwa Diocese, Bishop Duke Akamisoko, led the prayers for the security, peace and prosperity of Nigeria.

Praying, Archbishop Ndukuba asked God to give the President and the Vice President and other government officials wisdom to lead the country.

He prayed that God will grant “All who serve in the Federal Government the wisdom from above.

When they speak, grant them utterance that comes from the Holy Spirit, fill their hearts with wisdom, and give them the kind of mind.

And being filled and led by you, oh Holy Spirit, they will fulfil their purpose. And in this government, Lord, may your name be glorified.”

Also, Bishop Akamisoko of Kubwa Diocese prayed for the unity of the nation.

For our country, to the East, West, North, and South, let your blessings reign on this country, let your glory reign.”

The Bishop prayed to God to grant wisdom, good health, sound mind to Osinbajo and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, to be able to administer the country successfully.

At the dedication of the new Church building of RCCG City of David Parish, Utako, Osinbajo urged members of the church to seize the moment to raise law-abiding men and women for the benefit of the nation.

He as well encouraged the parish to focus on bringing up great leaders that will carry on the legacies of the church.

He said: “The dedication of the physical building called the church must only remind us that the real work of building the church is that of bringing up men and women in the knowledge and nurture of the Lord.

“The forces of evil and hate are more vehement than ever. The battle between light and darkness is more intense than ever, but we will prevail,” he added.

He commended the Pastor, Gbolade Okenla for his dedication and hard work.

The vice president also praised the members of the congregation for the sacrifices that birthed the new building, assuring them of the blessings that will follow their contributions.

He referred to the example of David in the Bible and said “David thought about building a church and the Lord blessed his generations forever.

You have also built a church. So, the wonders and miracles of God will attend to you and your families forever more in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Prayers were led by Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Assistant General Overseer and Regional Pastor, RCCG City of David Parish, Apapa, Lagos.

While thanking God for his blessings that has culminated in the dedication of a new church building, the pastor urged Christians to remain steadfast with God, especially in times of difficulty.

He prayed for leaders of the country, including the President and his vice, and assured that sponsors of trouble in parts of the country will soon be arrested.

God will intervene personally and arrest those causing trouble in the country,” the cleric prayed.
The cleric offered prayers to God for the unity of the country, peace and protection of leaders.

Dignitaries at the dedication of the City of David building include Sen. Philip Aduda; Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen; the SGF, and a former Information Minister, Prof. Jerry Gana, among others.
