Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo has said Nigeria is bound for greatness despite the current difficulties and challenges.
Osinbajo, who is on a four-day visit to the United States, made the statement on Sunday while addressing the congregation during a service at a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Bronx, New York, Punch reports.
The vice president said difficulties precede greatness and it is impossible to progress without a phase of challenge as currently faced by the country, adding that the word and spirit of God are already coming into fulfillment over Nigeria, and they would do something significant that would make the world to be in awe.
“Our country is bound for greatness. Whenever you hear that ‘oh, there are conflicts, oh there are difficulties’, just know that it is impossible to be great without difficulties.
“Even from the foundations of the earth, when God created the heavens and the earth, the scripture says on that first day, according to Genesis 1, there was confusion, complete confusion.
“The Bible says it was bleak and dark, and there was confusion on the surface of the earth, everything was void.
“But despite the fact that everything was void, the spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
“Then God spoke and said let there be light, and there was light. The scripture says he separated the light from the darkness, and saw that the light was good.
“That is what is going to happen in our own country. All we hear is there is confusion here, confusion there, but the word of God is there also.” He said.
He called on the congregation and Nigerians to keep praying for the nation as they prepare for greatness.
