A firm commitment and promise has been made on behalf of President-elect Bola Tinubu that the commonwealth of Nigeria and Nigerians is safe and will not be pilfered but used for the common good to set the nation on the right path, incoming First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu has pledged.
Persecondnews reports that Oluremi, a serving senator, spoke on the altar of God on Sunday at the 2023 Presidential Inauguration Inter-Denominational Church Service.
The service was held at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, as part of activities for the inauguration of President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as the 7th elected President of Nigeria in the fourth republic.
“Nigeria’s wealth is the Commonwealth of all and it belongs to everyone. God has blessed my family.
“We don’t need the wealth of Nigeria to survive but to do the right thing and I promise you on this altar that with your help, the help of God, we will set this nation on the right path,” Oluremi said.
She called for prayers for Nigeria to succeed under the Tinubu and expressed the hope that with the help of Nigerians and God’s help, the new government due to be inaugurated tomorrow (May 29) will set the nation on the right path.
According to Mrs Tinubu, God has been merciful to Nigeria, and for two years Nigerians prayed to God to do a new thing as contained in the Holy Bible in the book of Romans Chapter 8.
“But unfortunately when the new thing came, Nigerians kept arguing with God.
“I will begin from the Word of God in Romans 8 which says God will have mercy on whoever he will have mercy and show compassion on who he will show compassion.
“It is not he that wilIeth or he that runneth but is God that showeth mercy.
God has been merciful to us. I can tell you on my own that we never believed this could happen.
“But thank God for giving us hope, for giving us the resilience to continue in the race of life.
“Asiwaju is 71 and I will be 63. I bet I will be one of the oldest First Ladies Nigeria would have. We need the grace of God and we need everyone to do what Nigerians are expecting.
“Today, God has really proved himself as he did on the night of the APC primaries and put his seal on it. Because, when I saw the votes count to be 1,271, I said God it means you are here.
“I was humbled to my rock bottom. And to believe that this is the 7th consecutive democratic transition Nigeria will be experiencing shows that this is a time of perfection for Nigeria.
“Perfection in the sense that, in the word of God, I remember for over two years we have been praying in our churches, according to Isaiah 43:18-19, that we should not remember the former things, that God is going to do a new thing. A new thing came and we still kept arguing with God. Who can argue with his maker? No one.
“I know in Ecclesiastes 3:14, God said whatever he doeth is forever, we cannot add to it, we cannot take out of it. God does it so that men will fear before him and the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom,” Oluremi, a Deaconess in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), said.
She also stressed: “Today, we have heard in Psalm 133:1-3. Except there is unity, lessons cannot flow down. This is the time for Nigeria to come together, for us to be renewed in our hope again.
“To hope in Nigeria as our young children I’ve sang here today. They are expecting the best for Nigeria.”
Describing herself as a silent achiever, she said: “We need your prayers. We need your prayers. I can tell you, I for one I’m a silent worker. I’m not a noisemaker but I listen and I hear. It is not out of pride but it is about what the journey as meted on us.
“We have been bruised, our bodies is not like the same again. But once the spirit is strong and the Bible said, if the spirit is there, it will sustain your infirmity. But when the spirit is gone, who can stand? But the Spirit of God is in us and we will do the right thing by the grace of God.
“We need your prayers, we need the prayers of the church, we need the mosque. We need everybody to pray to that one God who we just read in Ephesians that He is one God of all, He is a God of all flesh, He is sovereign and He sits in heaven and He does as He pleases.
“In conclusion, I think I will end with that last verse of Ephesians 4:6. He is one God, Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all, and in you all. He is in every of His creation.
“We want to thank you all for coming out today. We thank our fathers of faith and our mothers of faith. God bless you. God will continually renew your strength. You have prayed for this nation and so it shall be.”
Oluremi used the occasion to also pray for the nation Nigeria for peace to return and to be great once again.
“But with the little oil that God has placed on my head, I pray over this nation that there shall be peace in our borders and this land shall be prosperous and it will grow in leaps and bounds.
“Nigeria will be the cynosure of all eyes, and Nigeria will take its place among the comity of nations in the name of Jesus. Thank you so much for your time. God bless you all, God bless our nation, Nigeria,” Persecondnews quotes Tinubu as saying.
