Nigeria’s forces of evil more determined now than ever: Osinbajo

“The forces of evil and of hate are more vehement than ever. The battle between light and darkness is more intense than ever, but we will prevail.”

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday, led some clerics to pray for God to grant Nigeria victory over “forces of evil” he described as being “vehement than ever.”

The prayers were offered during the dedication of two Churches in Abuja.

The Churches were the All Saints Anglican Church Wuse Zone 5, and the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) City of David Parish, Utako, Abuja.

Speaking shortly after the dedication of the new church auditorium at the Anglican Church, Mr Osinbajo urged church members to see the occasion as a call to the greater work of transforming the entire society.

“The dedication of the physical building called the church must only remind us that the real work of building the church is that of bringing up men and women in the knowledge and nurture of the Lord,” said Mr Osinbajo. “The forces of evil and of hate are more vehement than ever. The battle between light and darkness is more intense than ever, but we will prevail.”

According to the vice president, as President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime continues to work hard at finding solutions to the challenges confronting the nation, clergymen and congregants should pray for the nation to overcome them.

Mr Osinbajo first visited the Archbishop Metropolitan and Primate of all Nigeria Anglican Communion, Henry Ndukuba.

Mr Ndaukuba, assisted by the Bishop of Kubwa Diocese, Duke Akamisoko, led the prayers for Nigeria’s security, peace, and prosperity.

Mr Ndukuba prayed to God to give Messrs Buhari and Osinbajo the wisdom to lead the country.

He prayed that God would grant “all who serve in the federal government the wisdom from above.”
