“We are essential stakeholders as those in government in the building of a vibrant Nigeria. Take criticisms with a huge sense of thanksgiving and appreciation instead of anger.

“We need to counsel those in the government to give room for criticism. Criticism doesn’t make one the enemy of the government. If we are practicing democracy, let those in the position of authorities be sensitive and responsive to the yearnings of the people.”

“We need to reiterate that we are not only going to pray but we shall watch also because the injunction of the Bible to us is to ‘watch’ and pray.“
