The Acting President Prof Yemi Osinbanjo, SAN. stated, in a speech dated 24th May 2017, titled “ It's hard work that makes a nation great”, that “no matter how much you pray or fast our country cannot grow...’’

The above buttress the core point of our campaign that change will not occur by just resorting to ONLY fasting and prayer, while suffering and smiling. Also, depending on foreign aids from countries/ individuals from abroad does not help matters either, it only put us in bondage given that we live in the land of abundance.

The references to religious leaders, exercising of faith, fasting, praying and end of the world in previous posts appears to have offended some. The truth should not cause offence but rather should sets us free. When those who knows the truth fails to live by it, particularly, those in position of leadership, either elected, appointed, divinely or self anointed does contrary then that is an offence. James 4 v 17- “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn't do it, it is sin for them".

Some argue that you don't bring God into politics, really! Given that God is the author of politics, why then exclude Him? The white man brought religion to us and in spite of numerous fault in their system, to a very large extent there is, transparency and accountability.

The case is different with Nigeria. The way of greatness to Nigerians particularly those in position of leadership is to reach the top by every means at the expense of all others, contrary to the way of God and the Constitution which is to be humble, become least and servant of all. As the Jamaican saying goes 'crabs inna bucket'. Crabs in a bucket will never get out even if there is no lid on the bucket because they pull each other down.



The entire speech of the Acting President raises several questions and we hope he would provide answers to these questions in the spirit of transparency, accountability and oath of office of the vice president (now acting president) which he swore to, to preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
