The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Youth Development, Hon. Segun Adekola has charged Nigerians to pray for the country for her speedy economy recovery as well as for general healings of the land.
He also stressed the need for Nigerian leaders to make a selfless service their watchword, saying people must be ready to make sacrifices now than before in order to bring about meaningful development to the electorate.
Hon. Adekola, who gave the submission in a release made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti on this year Democracy Day celebration, pointed out that, “this time in our national life calls for a great sober reflection and support of all and sundry for the survival and rejuvenation of Nigeria’s economy as a nation in the face of the current economic challenges facing the country.
“The dwindling in the nation’s economy is a great concern and what we need to get out of the present development is to run to God and seek his face for redemption and healing of our Land.
“According to proverb 14 (34) “Righteousness exalted a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. But God gave the grace in the book of 2 chronicle 7 (14) by saying “if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; Then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” Adekola said.
