Nigeria not stagnant, says Olumakaiye


Rt. Rev. Dr. Humphrey B. Olumakaiye

The Bishop of the Diocese of Lagos and Missioner, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. Humphrey Olumakaiye has stated that Nigeria is not stagnant.

During the prayer walk on the centenary city of the diocese yesterday to mark the nation’s independence in Lagos, he called on leaders to eschew materialism, selfishness, and move closer to God so that the country could be the “dream of every Nigerian and comfortably occupy its rightful position in the comity of nations.”

He appreciated the spirit of perseverance among Nigerians, urging more commitment to God for better effect.


His words: “We can agree that the country cannot be said to be stagnant since it got independence 59 years ago, though the level of progress could be considered to be slow.

“We can also deduce that we have found ourselves in the state we are because our leaders have refused to get it right that unless they fear God who put them in their various positions, respect Him, distance themselves from ungodly practices and move closer to Him, they will never be able to take the country to the next level.”

The cleric submitted that In a country like Nigeria that God is very much interested in, judging by His “inexplicable investment, the nation would not be able to move forward unless everyone holds tenaciously to the Creator.”
