THE General Secretary/CEO of The Bible Society of Nigeria, BSN,  Pastor Samuel Sanusinhas advised Nigerians to imbibe the principles of integrity for a quicker transformation of a decayed society like Nigeria.

Pastor Sanusi noted that every advise that would put a nation on a right footing has been prescribed by the Holy Bible.

Speaking in a release made available to Vanguard Newspaper through BSN Public Relation Manager, Benjamin Mordi to announce the celebration of National Bible Day holding today, the cleric said that the socio-economic and security challenges facing the nation will be greatly reduced if Nigerians adopt and live by godly values prescribed by the Bible.

On the national Bible Day, Sanusi said: “Since the global community could celebrate Workers’ Day, Independence Day, Water Day, Literacy Day, and other days, set aside to be remembered, it will be ideal to also use a day to celebrate the Bible, a gift from God to humanity and pray for the peace, prosperity, and well-being of the nation”, he said.

National Bible Day is celebrated annually across Nigeria by churches, schools, and other Christian organisations. It is an opportunity to highlight the importance of the Bible and encourage its study and application in our daily lives.

The Bible Society of Nigeria is a not-for-profit interdenominational Christian organisation that translates the Bible into Nigerian languages, publishes, and distributes the Holy Scriptures, as well as raises funds for the Bible work and executes programmes that help people to engage with the Word of God to transform their lives. So far, we have the full Bible in 27 Nigerian languages with ongoing Bible translation/revision projects in 10 (ten) Nigerian languages at their respective stages of completion. It costs the organisation a minimum of ₦120,000,000.00 to complete a Bible translation project if achieved in eight years.
