President Goodluck Jonathan has said that in spite of all the crippling challenges facing Nigeria, the nation will reach its destination of greatness in no time.
The President made this statement at a church service at Goshen City, the headquarters of the Winners Chapel, Abuja.
The President also said that he was committed to turning the country around, and that all efforts were geared towards improving the lives of Nigerians.
The President said, “I am not here to make a formal speech as we have learnt to talk very little, just like the Bishop said in his sermon, your prayers have been helpful. I request that you continue to pray for this country. Bishop, thank you for your message, it has been very instructive.”
He continued, “As I listened to your message certain things were being reflected. I assure you this country will cross the bridge. Yes, we have challenges as a nation. Even the most developed nations pass through stages sometimes even more challenging than we face today. But what happened, yesterday, (Saturday) in South Africa will be the story of this nation. Those of you who watched that match will know that it is 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.
He concluded, “That is how it will be with the story of this country. With your prayers and commitment we will get to the destination… I promise that I and my colleagues will continue to do what is right for this country.”
