‘I have total faith that Nigeria will emerge from this crisis strong, united and prosperous, this will come to fruition in the lifetime of this government.

‘Also, as Christians and leaders, we should all thank God for the opportunity to be key players at this time of economic meltdown,’ Lawal said.

He said Nigeria was founded upon water so that she can bear fruits and flourish and added that, ‘we are all instruments of transformation and our role is to make Nigeria great.’

Bako urged political and religious leaders to behave like persons who would not steal from the people’s wealth but have the interest of the people at heart.

‘Let us behave as God-fearing persons who have the interest of its citizen and welfare at heart and not behave as politicians.

‘We must be able to take Nigeria to a place of her destiny by praying for clarity of vision for our leaders who are leading us,’ Bako stressed.

He urged Nigerians to be instruments of transformation and be carriers of blessing where ever they go by speaking positively.

‘When the nation seeks God’s face then the Lord will heal our land,’ he added.

Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
