Better days are ahead – Catholic Archbishop tells Nigerians

The Catholic Archbishop of Metropolitan See of Lagos, Most Reverend Adewale Martins has assured Nigerians that there are better days ahead despite the hard times currently facing the country.
The archbishop, who spoke yesterday at the solemn admission of about 1,000 faithful into Association of Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, admonished Nigerians to keep faith in God and offer prayers for the government to surmount the current challenges.

He stated that there is no problem that is too big for God to solve, noting that the current challenges facing the nation were a reminder for people to move closer to God and seek divine intervention in solving the challenges.



Martins told leaders not to overstretch the patience of the people, saying they needed to seek divine guidance in their efforts to bringing lasting solution to the current challenges. He maintained that justice and fairness must be the government’s guiding principle to lead the country out of hardship.

According to him, “We should hope for the better in face of present challenges. I believe there is light at the end of the tunnel in. But, we need to be patient and remain in prayers for the country. Our leaders should not take our patience for granted. Governments at all level need to listen to all complaints from the people and address them.

“The people need to have assurance that something is being done to solve the challenges we face in our economy, with the falling of Naira and key infrastructure. Our leaders should seek divine intervention in taking the country out of its challenges and they must be guided by principle of fairness and justice.”

The cleric made this known at the event which took place at St. Luke’s Military Catholic Church in 174 Battalion Army Barracks, Odogunyan, Ikorodu.
