The National President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Dr Samson Ayokunle on Monday in Lokoja said until the nation leaders imbibe the spirit of sincerity and fear of  God, the country may not receive the desired change.

Dr. Ayokunle made the assertion on Monday at the official inauguration of government House chapel for Christian worshippers built by the present administration under the tutelage of Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

He said the lukewarm attitude towards the construction of Abuja -Lokoja highway remains a sore thumb in the life of various  leaderships at the federal level, stressing  that  until the nation leaders imbibe the spirit of sincerity and fear of  God, the country may not receive the desired change.

“Lokoja-Abuja highway is a shame of the country. Do something and remove this shame, 15 years constructing a 200kms road is a shame”,  he expressed.

He said Nigeria is a complex nation with different ethnic, religious and socio-cultural backgrounds, adding that with its endowed human and materials resources, if properly harnessed, the country would join comity of great states, and dust off the present hardships that has bedeviled the nation.

He said a society devoid of justice, oppression will take the centre stage, noting that for the country to be great, it’s needed justice, fairness, and the mutual respect for one another in all segment to be guided in the society.
