Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday led the nation’s former leaders and other top government officials to attend an interdenominational church service in commemoration of Nigeria’s 57 years of independence.

The service which was held at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja was also attended by former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd.); former President Olusegun Obasanjo; former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; and the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

The service had “National Unity in the Bond of Peace and Love” as its theme.

The service’s first bible reading was read by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, from Ephesians 4:1-16 while Dogara read the second Bible reading from 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.

Osinbajo assured the worshippers that Nigeria would overcome its current challenges and emerge victorious.

He said as salt of the earth, Christians are to teach the nation about.

In doing this, he said they must first be uniting the body of Christ.

“This is responsibility of all who are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Our nation is at a point where we should teach the people the virtues of the Lord Jesus Christ,” he said.

Osinbajo prayed that the nation will blossom and overcome challenges and that the glory of the former days will be nothing to be compared to the glory of the latter days.

“This nation will be joyful and prosperous,” he declared.

Gowon who spoke on behalf of other former Nigerian leaders urged Nigerians to continue to pray for the peace and unity of the country, describing the gesture as their greatest responsibility.

The representative of the President of the Senate, Senator Sola Adeyeye, attributed the nation’s woes to the fact that people many people seek the glory of men and not that of God.
