Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Gov. Akinwummi Ambode have been awarded Apostles of Change by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Apapa Family, Lagos Province 20 at its 8th Annual Conference and Reunion.
Speaking at the event, Osinbajo has urged Nigerians to be faithful, diligent and honest in all that they do so as to attract favour from God and man.
“If you are a typist, if you are a receptionist, if you are a security man, be faithful in the little things you are doing,” he said.
“It is that faithfulness, it is that trustworthiness, it is that loyalty towards the things you are doing and to people you are serving that will lift us up.
“That is the change our nation needs. I trust that we, as the children of God, will be not just harbingers of that change, but will be that change.
“Our country is waiting for us; I trust that we are all going to be that change that the nation needs,” he said.
Also speaking, Gov. Akinwummi Ambode said that the theme of the conference was appropriate, especially with the current situation in the country.
“The theme of the conference aptly sums up our expectations and collective desire as individuals; no meaningful progress can be achieved without a purpose driven change in the right direction.
“Our prime focus and concern shall be to serve diligently; as we embark on this journey, no one, irrespective of status, strength, ability or disability would be left behind,” Ambode said.
He prayed that God would grant him wisdom, knowledge and understanding as he governs the state.
