State of The Nation: Primate Ndukuba Allays The Fears Of Nigerians That With God These Problems Will Soon Be Over

He said this was the time everyone should have absolute trust in God because He has never disappointed the faithful .


The Primate delivering his charge at the 2020 Carnival for Christ held in Abuja, said that the theme: ”Be Still and Know that I am God”, was a challenge for Christians to trust God and never wavered as He “will  deliver us from whatever difficulties we are facing.”

“At a time like this when people face different challenges, overwhelming fear and uncertainty, it is good to lift the spirit of the people, encourage them to hold on and trust in God.

”We must encourage one another even if it is in a very low key. The theme for this year’s carnival came really aptly. It is an assurance of God’s presence and help in terms of trouble, challenges and when there is fear.


”It is good for us to know that God is with us and he will not leave us or forsake us.

”At a time like this, Nigerians most trust in God. Do not be afraid because the Lord, who has been with us throughout this challenging times, will see us through and we will overcome.

”We are moved by what God can do and we are urging the people to keep doing what they legitimately do to get their daily bread. They must also take care of themselves and care for one another. We must stand together.”

Ndukuba, noted that the current recession was a global challenge, he urged the leaders of this country to put on their thinking caps,  do their best by pulling the country out of it.

“Recession at the moment is a global challenge. I believe that we will overcome it by God’s grace.

“We urge the government to take measures that will help us get out of recession as soon as possible,” he said.

Right Revd Edmund Akanya, Archbishop of Kebbi Diocese, in his homily, said that God was the centre of everything and would always free humanity from every challenge.

“The challenges facing the country and the people are all known to God. Christians must be optimistic that they will always over come such challenges,” he said.
