Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, says love and unity will “rebuild the cracks” in Nigeria.
Osinbajo said this at the Independence Day Interdenominational Church Service at the National Christian Centre in Abuja on Sunday.
He was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
The VP spoke on the theme: “Together, come let us rebuild”.
Osinbajo urged Nigerians to contribute their quotas to national development through renewed vigour.
He said the story of Nehemiah and his role in building the wall of Jerusalem should be a lesson to every Christian in Nigeria.
“The concern of Nehemiah was borne out of the love he had for his nation that prompted him to seek permission to rebuild the walls. We need such love to rebuild the cracks that we have in our nation.
“Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken but have cracks that could break if not properly addressed. We need to seek the face of God to address the broken walls”, NAN quoted him as saying.
