Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo says lack of unity and love is the major problem affecting the growth of Nigeria



The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has identified the lack of unity and love as the major problems affecting the growth of the country.

The vice president stated this in Owerri, the Imo State capital, during the wedding of the daughter of Governor Hope Uzodinma.

He admonished the newlywed to love themselves as Christ loved the church.

He said, “In marriage, two different people from different backgrounds, are brought together and they become one. This should be a lesson for Nigerians.”

In his sermon, the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri Archdiocese, Anthony Obinna, lamented that insecurity was destroying the foundations of the country.

He said, “Insecurity still pervades the land. There is nothing on the ground to show that the end was close.

“We live in a land almost overtaken by insecurity and with no end in sight. Nigeria is in distress and the palpable distress also reaches us here. We have since observed that all the security personnel in the land, appear largely unable or incapable of securing the citizens. In spite of the massive security personnel around us, we still have reports of massive insecurity in the country.

“Today, Nigerians are moving faster to eternity than what it used to be before now. We have sinned terribly in this land.

“The traces of sin abound in Igboland, Yorubaland and even Fulani areas. No area is free from our terrible sins. We all have to repent, go down on our knees in total penitence and ask God to forgive us and bless our land.

“These inequalities have sadly generated a lot of misgivings in the land. Our country has been steadily going down, from 1966 till date.

“I am in love with the elder statesman, Ayo Adebanjo. I don’t know him personally. I am, however, in love with his persistent call on the Yoruba people to support Ndigbo in 2023.”
