The vice President, who spoke on the theme:  Together, come let us rebuild,” urged Nigerians to contribute their quotas to national development through renewed vigour.

According to him, the story of of Nehemiah and his role in building the wall of Jerusalem should be a lesson to every Christian in Nigeria, who is desirous of building Nigeria.

” The concern of Nehemiah was borne out of the love he had for his nation that prompted him to seek permission to rebuild the walls.

” We need such love to rebuild the cracks that we have in our nation. Such Nehemiah will cry to God to use the opportunities in the country to address our challenges.

“Fortunately for us our walls are not yet broken but have cracks that could break if not properly addressed.

” We need to seek the face of God to address the broken walls. The significance of wall signified purity, prosperity, peace and contentment,” he said.

He called on the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to provide leadership to its faithful in making Nigeria a great nation.

At the event were Deputy Majority Leader in the Senate, Prof. Afolabi Borofice, who represented the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Members of the Judiciary and Members of the National Economic Council among other dignitaries. NAN
