The Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha, says “the righteous” must be more active for Nigerians to rejoice.
Mustapha said this on Saturday while speaking at the northern Christian youth economic and political summit in Abuja.
The SGF said there is a need for righteous persons to proffer solutions to some of Nigeria’s problems.
His words: “If we want to see people rejoicing in our land, the righteous must step out with actions and get into places of authority at different levels irrespective of party affiliation,” he said.
“We need to build a platform that would help push what we have received as a mandate from heaven to ensure good governance because it is very important what you are doing.
“There are challenges and I keep telling people that I do not want to downplay challenges that are confronting us particularly in the northern part of the country. We are the ones that have spiritual mandate to bring solution to these problems.
“And unless we abide, these challenges will count to deepen. It is my responsibility and yours to arise from our slumber and begin to take our rightful places. So that when we speak, we will be speaking the mind of God and his authority will be established in our lives.”
The SGF also called for more youth participation in political activities beginning from the various political parties.
According to him, “this is the way to go. Youths should get involved with issues that are very important to our people. We are the ones that can cause the desired change in this nation. If you are not in any political party you cannot effect any change”.
