And in this government, Lord, may your name be glorified.” Also Bishop Akamisoko of Kubwa diocese prayed for unity of the nation. “For our country, to the East, West, North, and South, let your blessings reign on this country, let your glory reign.” The Bishop prayed God to grant wisdom, good health, sound mind to Osinbajo and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, to be able to administer the country successfully.
