President Goodluck Jonathan says the events that followed the 2015 elections has given him confidence that Nigeria will remain one United entity under God no matter who becomes President
He spoke on Sunday at a Presidential inauguration service held on Abuja to offer prayers for the incoming government as well as bid farewell to the Jonathan administration.
The service which took place at the National Christian Centre was also a forum for the incoming Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to assume leadership of the centre being the highest placed Christian in the new administration.
This Presidential Thanksgiving and Inauguration service themed “Give thanks in all circumstances” captures the different shades thrown up by life. As one group comes out triumphant in thanks and praise another group also thankfully retreats into the background hoping for another opportunity to occupy the spotlight
In his sermon at the service, Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh pointed out the many wrongs were committed during the elections but urged Nigerians to forgive one another.
