Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha yesterday attended an end of year thanksgiving service in Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja.

In separate comments, they acknowledged that God had been merciful to Nigerians in diverse ways, stressing that in spite of the challenges in the country, Nigeria was still one united entity.

Speaking after the service, Osinbajo noted that God had more in store for Nigeria even as the year comes to an end, saying that God was ready to bless the country beyond the imagination of skeptics.

Osinbajo had in February this year survived a helicopter crash while on a campaign tour in Kogi State.

He was on a campaign trip of the All Progressives Congress (APC) prior to the 2019 general elections, which returned President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term when the crash occurred.

On his part, Mustapha urged Nigerians to always show gratitude at all times, saying, “My message to Nigerians all over the world is that we should have a heart of gratitude to God.

“For everything and in every situation, we must give thanks to God, the heart of gratitude is always very pleasing to the Lord, that you show gratitude in the little things you see in your life.

“Looking back, we are just 30 days to the end of the year, if you see how God has taken us from the first of January 2019 to this present moment, so many people have not been able to see this day, but as a result of God’s mercy and grace.”

Responding, Omo-Agege said apart from the averted mishap, the fact that the President was hale and hearty and that the cooperation between the legislature and executive arms of government enjoy convivial relationship called for thanksgiving.
