On Sunday, 28th May, 2017, the acting President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo speaking at the 2017 Democracy Day Interdenominational church service tagged ‘’The Dry Bones Shall Live Again’’ held at the National Christian Centre, Abuja said that every Nigerian must make some sacrifice for the greatness of the country.
He also said that that both the leaders and the people led must be ready to give back their quota for the growth of the country.
Making suggestion to the narrative of the Good Samaritan as exhibited in Luke 10:30-37, the Acting President said Nigerians must not resemble the priest and levite in the story who demonstrated no sensitivity for the man assaulted by criminals. He admonished Nigerians to live like the Good Samaritan that took care of the casualty.
He said, “The nation requires those that can make the sacrifices to make it great, they are those whom Jesus spoke about, people that may not be of note but prepared to make the nation great again. Some are doctors, teachers, young graduates.
“There is sacrifice of integrity against corruption. When you speak against corruption, it fights back. So you must be ready to make sacrifice no matter how highly placed or small you are. Teachers who are prepared to teach, doctors who are prepared to provide health services no matter what.
“Make the sacrifices required to make our nation great whether you are a leader or a follower”.
