President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, declared in Warri, that if not for the Church, the country would have disintegrated.
Speaking at the flag off of this year’s Word of Life Bible Church’s Jubilee Word Festival at the International Gospel Centre, Warri, the President, paid glowing tributes to Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor who marked his birthday yesterday, describing him as a “very very strong president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.”
Jonathan, who said nation building is a collective responsibility, challenged Nigerians to join hands with his administration for the onerous task of building the nation.
“Whenever I have the opportunity to address a religious gathering like this, I always like to repeat myself that but for the Church, this country would probably have gone into oblivion.
“You have been praying persistently day and night and that is why some of our challenges are still at this level. Nigerians are totally committed, not pretenders,” he said.
The president also reiterated his administration’s commitment to providing steady power supply in the country. He assured Nigerians that by the end of April next year there would be relatively steady power supply.
