President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday likened the current challenges facing the country to the hardship encountered by the Israelites on their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land.

Jonathan spoke during his foster daughter’s wedding thanksgiving service at the Cathedral Church of the Advent, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Life Camp, Abuja.

He told the congregation that just as the Israelites eventually made it to Canaan despite the numerous challenges that confronted them on the way, Nigeria would get to its desired destination.

The president urged Nigerians to continue to support the government and pray for the country, adding that government would keep doing its best to overcome the challenges.

“This is a period in which the whole world is being challenged, just like some of the passages we read.
“Whenever I think about all these happenings in Nigeria it makes me remember the journey of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land.

“When God promised they were going to be given a land full of milk and honey, ordinarily one would have expected them to just walk in and get the milk and honey.

“But they had to cross the Red Sea; that was a challenge. They had to meet people like Annas and others. That was a big challenge, but because God wanted them to be there they were able to get there.

“Surely, we will get to where we want to go as a nation. We may have the road bumps, we may have the obstacles but we will crush them and pass them.

“All we want to request is your continued support and your prayers, and we promise we will continue to do our best.’’


The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the thanksgiving service followed the wedding of the president’s foster daughter, Inebharapu Paul, with Simeon Onyemaechi, on Saturday.
The ceremony, which held at the Ecumenical Centre, Abuja, had attracted important dignitaries including former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The wedding reception was later held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

While thanking God for success in the entire marriage process, Jonathan asked the congregation to join him in prayers for peace and happiness to reign in the couple’s home.

The president was joined by his wife, Dame Patience Jonathan; his mother, Eunice, and some of his aides.

NAN also reports that special prayers were offered by the Primate of the Anglican Church, the Most Revd, Nicholas Okoh, for couple, the first family and for the nation.

He later presented a carton of the Anglican annual devotional as a gift to the president as well as the church’s hymn books and calendar to the couple.

Your own President is letting you to know that you are UNGODLY and DISOBEDIENT. To be compare with the Children of Israel is a SHAME unto anyone who Believe in God. The PARENTS never made it but the CHILDREN did and many of the tribes never receive their inheritance after the death of Joshua. This man have no Knowledge of the things he speaks about. Darkness is truly a Fool's world. Hugs

PS: Nigerians who enjoy displaying the FOOL you are when I write don't bother to response. I have gotten to know that many of you are ILLITERATES "Can't read and write" even though sporting Degree. So I have no time for your OPINIONS and FACTS. I speak with TRUTH because I am not afraid of MEN. I only FEAR Jesus Christ the Lord our God whom I am His Servant. Let the LIGHT SHINE so those who are not perish as you Man worshipping ones can read and draw closer to their God.

After listening to Jonathan speech in lagos campaign. I can only compare him to a market woman. An opportunist. A symbol of Nigeria failed educational system.
