Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said at the weekend that President Muhammadu Buhari was purposely chosen by God to fulfill his divine plans for Nigeria.
Buhari and Osinbajo were inaugurated as president and vice president on Friday, May 29 in Abuja at a colourful ceremony attended many world leaders, past Nigerian presidents and important dignitaries in the country.
Speaking at the national thanksgiving ceremony in celebration of his inauguration in Abuja on Saturday, Osinbajo said God’s time of setting things right has come for the country.
“After three failed attempts, God made Muhhamadu Buhari win his fourth attempt at becoming Nigeria’s president because it is the time for God to heal this nation.
“God’s plan is to make Nigeria a nation that will be admired and respected among the nations of the earth; and this he intend to do by establishing truth and integrity, ensuring that corruption is eradicated, and resources meant for all are not cornered by few but used according to law, justice and equity to the benefit of all.
“The Lord wants a nation ruled only in accordance to law and justice, where the guilty are punished and the good are rewarded.
“Listening to President Buhari deliver his inaugural speech, I am sure you will agree that he emphasized these three clear desires of God.”
Osinbajo also thanked God for choosing him to assist the president in fulfilling the divine plans and purposes for Nigeria.
He said he is committed to the task by God’s grace.
