The Archbishop of Ondo Ecclesiastical and Bishop of Akure Anglican Diocese, Most Rev’d Simeon Borokini has charged the President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu to step on toes if need be, in order to revive the country.
He said the President should exonerate himself by doing anything possible at his disposal to reduce corruption and to return the country’s good image to the entire world.
The Bishop made the call while delivering his Charge at the Second Session of the 14th Diocesan Synod themed “ Do Your Best for the Lord ” held at St. John’s Anglican Church, Oba-Ile at the weekend.
He also urged the president not to be sentimental in taking certain decisions at this time, if need be, as the world is looking at him.
“When you take a position of leadership, you have to step on toes.
“He must not be sentimental, if need be to offend some people, he should do it, to give the nation a good image at this time, as all eyes are now on him expecially as far as corruption is concerned,” he said.
Borokini urged the President to quickly discard the euphoria of political victory and face responsibility of the task of building the nation and the states.
He also called on Tinubu to settle down fast and gather the best brain we have in the country so as to put an end to the various problems challenges facing the country.
The Bishop advised Christians to be perfect and the only way to be perfect is to do their best to please God.
“As the propensity for mediocrity in service to God is now a cancer that is fast threatening the existence of the church, God is expecting the best from us, as there is no half truth.
” What God is expecting from us is perfection, and the only way to be perfect is for us to do our best in everything that is good.,” he urged
The Bishop, however appealed to parents to do their best in looking after their children not to involve themselves in internet fraud and homosexuality, which is now rampant among the young ones.
At the synod, Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu appreciated the church of God for their love and intercession for his quick recovery.
The Governor, represented by his Special Adviser on Union Matters and Special Duties, Dare Aragbaye said their prayers have been doing wonders.
