President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed appreciation to the Church in Nigeria whose prayers he says have kept the nation intact in the face of many challenges The President spoke on Sunday in Lagos at a thanksgiving service at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina
After political meetings, consultations and negotiations which had eaten up the better part of Saturday evening, the President was at the Church to participate in a Thanksgiving service to usher in the month of March
This is the month rescheduled elections will hold and while some may hint that the President is taking politics to the Church, he says he is just here to acknowledge and appreciate the prayers of the Christian faithful which he says has kept the nation stable
Provost of the Cathedral Church of Christ, the Very Reverend Pelu Johnson in his exhortation pleaded with Nigerians to steer away from negative attitudes which could impact negatively on the stability which the country presently enjoyed.
“It was better he said to pray rather than curse the leaders of the country so that they would be guided by God to do good for the nation” Very Rev. Johnson said.
As the nation moves rapidly towards elections later this month, these word should guide the various politicians soliciting for the votes of the people; “It is better to pray rather than curse”
