As Nigeria celebrates its 58th Independence Anniversary tomorrow, clerics across the country prayed for the country’s unity, peace, victims of insurgency, the oppressed, families, among others.
Most Rev Dr Micheal Olusola Fape, Bishop of Remo and archbishop of Lagos ecclesiastical province.
At 58, Nigeria will rise again. The oppressors of Nigeria will be disarmed and a time of refreshing will come upon this nation. God will raise good leaders who will harness the abundant resources of this nation for the good of all.
Nigeria is going through a difficult time because our political leaders are not sincere. The fight against corruption is selective. There is need for equity and fairness in appointments to reflect federal character.
Bishop Olukunle Amoo, Laughter Foundation Ministries
