Enugu- Rev. Innocent Chukwujindu of St. Paul Anglican Church, China Town, Enugu, has said that the country will survive the current economic challenges in spite of the seeming doubtful circumstances.
Speaking during an Independence Day mass wedding in the church, Chukwujindu said that the current challenges were not worse than most situations that had come and gone.
He said that Nigerians had proven to be resilient in the face of similar situations, adding that what was needed were clear-cut policies to navigate the country out of the woods.
The cleric called on Nigerians to support the current administration by embracing its policies aimed at correcting the wrongs of the past.
“Nigeria is surrounded by so many doubtful circumstances but if we have confidence in God, the challenges we see today will soon be gone.
“The country is not a mistake. God knows about the creation and He has plans for it but we need to go back to God.
“In years to come when we must have gotten out of the current situation, Nigeria will be the best because our children will learn from our mistakes,” he said.
Chukwujindu urged the couples to always remember the importance of the Independence Day in their lives.
“The wedding is not a coincidence to have been organised today. It is to serve as a memorial for the couples and Nigerians that Independence Day commemorates the joy we have to be free from colonialism,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that four couples were wedded to mark the Independence Day celebrations.
