President Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians to
pray for him so that he can acquire wisdom to lead the
country aright.
Jonathan said this on Thursday, December 18, this
during the 2014 Christmas Carol ceremony in the Aso
Villa Chapel at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The president also lamented the fact that he always
receives contradictory advice on important issues and
decisions.
“We pray that God should give those of us who are in
charge the grace to do things with the fear of God. If
we begin to do what is right in our own little way, this
nation will survive. God knows why we are here.
Nobody will place himself in any position without God.
So, God that gives all of us the opportunity, will see us
through,” Jonathan said.
“For me, your servant today, I will continue to request
for your prayers that God should give me the wisdom
to do what is right in His sight. Because it is quite
challenging for a leader; for every subject that you want
to take a decision on, you will have multiple
suggestions. Some contradictory, some to the left,
some to the right, some to the centre. But you must
take a decision.”
“It is only God that can guide you to take the right
decision that will not bring suffering to your people. We
will try our best and we will continue to do our best.
We promise that any opportunity given to us, we will
use it to serve mankind,” the president added.
Jonathan also noted that Nigeria was not alone in the
spate of disasters which had befallen it in recent times.
“I appreciate all of you, Christians and other religious
bodies, that have been praying for this great country.
You will all agree with me that you rarely listen to any
good news globally. Either people are killed, people are
slaughtered, people are kidnapped, bomb exploded here
and there,” he said
“Of course, our country is not spared in this world ugly
history. Every day, we hear ugly stories in this country.
It could have been worse than this but for your
prayers,” Jonathan added.
