Vice president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, made the statement at the ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of Nigeria Prays group in Abuja on Friday 14 October 2016.
The senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), professor and senior pastor at Redeemed Christian Church of God, said:
“If we want to be a nation that can feed its people, we must turn from evil ways and work for righteousness.
“When our pulpits preach righteousness, our people will rise up and become salts of the earth; Christians will stand up and be honest if we preach righteousness in the pulpit.
“The principles of hard work, integrity and innovation are things that made other countries great and they are all in the gospel and if we follow the principles, we can be great.”
