October 1st: Despite visible inequality, insecurity Osinbajo says new Nigeria is here
“The new Nigeria is here,” says Osinbajo in his verified twitter handle.
“Many say it is impossible for Nigeria to change due to corruption, ethnic and ‘religious divisions are deep’, corruption has no end, politicians are too selfish and mischevious”
Resorting to divine hope, he said only God could address the numerous challenges confronting Nigeria.
When God spoke about the Promised Land, spies that were sent in came back with reports of how impossible it was to take the city and enter the Promised Land. But God used Joshua & Caleb who had a different spirit to take down the well-fortified city of jericho with just a shout.

“The Almighty God is the builder of nations and the Bible tells us that he promised the children of Israel that he would take them from bondage, suffering and slavery into the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
“When God spoke about the Promised Land, spies that were sent in came back with reports of how impossible it was to take the city and enter the Promised Land. But God used Joshua & Caleb who had a different spirit to take down the well-fortified city of Jericho with just a shout”.
“God has promised us a new Nigeria, a peaceful Nigeria, a prosperous Nigeria, a united Nigeria, where the different tribes and tongues are not wedges of separation, but the joyful textures of our togetherness.”
The country, he noted, is also blessed with different resources capable of developing it.
“But like Caleb & Joshua, we declare that these problems are merely bread for us, we will enter the promised land.
“God almighty has taken away the protection of the enemies of this nation. He has taken away their powers, the noise we hear, the turbulence we experience, are the last gasps of a defeated foe. The day of freedom is at the door.
“I shared all of this and more at the 59th Independence Day interdenominational church service. Nigeria will prevail. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said
Nigeria’s 59th Independence Day is billed for Tuesday, 1st October.
