Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom says President Goodluck Jonathan’s participation in the 2013 Christian pilgrimage to Israel is a turning point in the spiritual rebirth of the country.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr Aniekan Umana, in Uyo on Wednesday.

“I believe strongly that being the first historic pilgrimage by any president in Nigeria since 1914 would be a turning point for our country.

“I know that past Heads of State and Presidents who were Muslim had undertaken pilgrimages to Medina and Mecca.

“This being the first pilgrimage by a Nigerian leader to Jerusalem, I believe that God is going to look at Nigeria favourably and our lives would never be the same again.

“I am very convinced that this is a turning point for national rebirth.

“This is a turning point by Mr President to transform this nation.

“Any transformation that does not have spiritual connotation is not enough,” the statement quoted Akpabio as saying.
