‘There is cause to worry about Nigeria’
Abia State marked the independence anniversary with prayers and fasting lasting from 6 am to noon. Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, who spoke at Okpara Auditorium during the event attended by many people, urged Nigerians to hold on to God for solution to the numerous challenges confronting the nation at a time like this.
The governor who noted that there is cause to worry as the country has found herself in a near-hopeless situation, said but for God, Nigerians would have little or no hope.
“We should thank God for the grace upon Abia that despite difficulties, the state has witnessed relative peace and security and has also made appreciable progress compared to other states.
“Anybody who is not worried in Nigeria today is either dead or spirituality blind. There is cause to worry because it is a curse if you begin to feel that your yesterday is better than your today and that your today is, perhaps, going to be better than your tomorrow,” Ikpeazu said.
