According to him, the greatest challenge currently facing Nigeria include drop in revenue and income distribution which he noted are problems inherited from the previous administration.

He said “before this government took over  workers in many states were not paid salaries for months, our economy badly damaged, there was massive looting.”

“We have a leadership that has emerged with a will to take the challenges. Of course it will take time. The president was humble enough to apologise to Nigerians for the hardship over fuel scarcity.”

Dogara reminded the congregation that Nigeria is not the only country facing some challenges in the world,  “Europe is struggling with refugees, Arab countries are in tumoil while some countries are even failed states.

“Every generation has come with some peculiar problems and also come with men and women that will help overcome those challenges. That is the message of hope that I bring to you. Working together we will be able to solve those problems”

He also urged Nigerians to persist in prayers for leaders saying: “We should all pray for the president for divine wisdom and also all leaders because when they do well, our people will do well.”

In his sermon, titled “Wise men who missed salvation”, Reverend Haruna Bukar of COCIN Gwarangah, read from the book of Matthew chapter 2 verses 1-18 and Micah 5:2 and  called on all Nigerians no matter the faith they profess to fear God and desist from primitive accumulation of wealth.

Reverend Bukar said today many people missed salvation because they misunderstood the essence of Christmas.
