Osinbajo To Nigerians: Buhari Will Eradicate Corruption



Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has reiterated that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would eradicate corruption in the country.

Speaking Saturday, May 30, 2015, at a Thanksgiving Service to mark the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, Osinbajo said God has plan for this nation and as a God of time and season, it is time to set things aright.

He said as  contained in the inaugural speech of President Buhari, corruption would be eradicated and there would be rule of law, stressing that anyone who breaks the law would be punished as God is no respecter of persons.

Osinbajo was full of thanks to God who controls all things and rules in the affairs of man.  He said God plans to set things right and to make Nigeria a nation to be respected among the nations of the earth.

The service was laced with series of worship sessions and prayers. Thanksgiving giving were offered  on the peaceful campaigns, release of the election results and acceptance of it and ultimately, a peaceful inauguration of the administration on the 29th of May, 2015.  There were four Bible readings taken and the first two readings were taken from Daniel 2 : 20 – 23, the second from Psalm 124 : 1 – 8.

Delivering his sermon, Bishop Wale Oke of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, extolled the impeccable record of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who rose to the peak of his career at a tender age. He took the text of his sermon from 1Samuel 2: 13, reminding of the life of Prophet Eli and his children.

Bishop Oke recalled that Eli was punished not because he was unrighteous but because of the sins of his children whom he did not correct and by implication he Eli committed sin by proxy and God punished him.  He urged the VP not to condone corruption by anyone who works with him, noting that he should set standard and with this he will remain a friend of God like Abraham.

In her vote of thanks, wife of the Vice President, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo thanked the Almighty God for being with them throughout the campaign period. She also thanked all the friends and well-wishers as well as the clergymen who came for the thanksgiving service.
