“Be patient in all things, though it is not easy to be patient; you will be tested, but you will have joy when you are patient.
“Why are we always in a hurry? We are impatient with our husbands, wives, neighbours and even our country; patience comes with action.
“When certain things befall us, we should be patient; we have abandoned some spiritual exercise that would make us to know when God is trying to speak to us because we have been impatient.
“So, I urge Christians to put their trust in God because He will not let Nigerians down,’’ he said.
