ABUJA Despite increasing onslaught by the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, in northern part of the country and other security challenges in the country, President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, assured that Nigeria will triumph and become the great nation it was destined to be.

President Goodluck Jonathan wave to the crowd shortly after the conferment of se -lo-lia (Star of the Nation) on him during the courtesy visit to the king for the burial of the first Lady's mother , Madam fynface Oba in Okireka , River state ...yesterday

He spoke at the third service of Dunamis International Gospel Church, Area one, Abuja, where he had gone to worship.

According to the President, though the challenge of insecurity has gradually assumed a global phenomenon, Nigeria is having its “unfair” share of the menace.

”If you watch television, both local and foreign, we always have negative news as breaking news. The whole world is almost in trouble and as a nation, we are bound to have our own fair share,” he said.

With your prayers, surely we will overcome our challenges,” the President said.

He thanked Christians and other religious groups for their prayers for the country, noting that but for these prayers, the situation in the country would have been worse.

He specifically thanked the senior pastor of the Church,   Dr Paul Enenche, and his team for their consistent support and prayers for the country.

”Let me sincerely appreciate Dr. Paul Enenche and Mrs. Enenche for what they have been doing for us. Being young man and lady well trained in the scientific way of healing people but they know that scientific way of healing does not give you total healing.

“If you go for a major treatment in any hospital, they may tell you to come every three months or six months for check-ups, that means it is not total. It is only spiritual healing that is total. We thank you for what you have been doing,” the President said.

President Jonathan promised he would worship outside the State House on every last Sunday of the month from now on in order to appreciate the good work of other men of God.
