MINISTER of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, has said the Federal Government will not be deterred by the security challenges in some parts of the country, but will remain focused on implementing its transformation agenda to grow the economy and create wealth and employment.
The minister spoke in Abuja when he received a delegation from the International Leadership Conference of Ministries College of Bishops on a courtesy visit.
He noted that the transformation agenda of the Federal Government was aimed at transforming Nigeria into a modern economy, through strategic policy implementation and reforms in critical sectors, which had begun to yield positive results.
Maku urged the religious leaders to continue to pray for peace, stability and unity among Muslims and Christians in the country, to create the needed environment for development to thrive in the country.
He said: “Nigeria has come a long way because of our prayers, because people are always crying to God concerning our nation and God has been listening to our prayers as a country. And because of God’s strong hand in this nation, we have continued to move from crisis to crisis and the world is amazed. Sometimes, people predict that Nigeria is finished, Nigeria will collapse, there is nothing the world did not predict in our country, but they are always disappointed because there is the hand of God in this country and Nigeria will continue to endure.”
