Osinbajo made this statement on Sunday at the 56th Independence Anniversary Interdenominational Church Service at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.
According to the VP, the promise of God, included building a new Nigeria where there would be peace from North-East to the Niger Delta, and where there would be jobs for the unemployed.
He said, “We are on our way out of the wilderness. We should not be like the children of Israel when He took them out of Egypt and after few problems, became grumblers-in-chief.
“As children of God, we must declare this nation will prosper, we must be like our father who is the great encourager. Our message to Nigeria is ‘be strong and be of good courage; do not be dismayed’, every Nigerian will benefit from the new Nigeria.
“God saw our nation and decided to put this leadership in place; this leadership will take us across the Red Sea to the new Nigeria.”
