I’m In Government To Serve The People And God, Says Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said his primary assignment in government is to serve the people and honour God.

Prof. Osinbajo stated this on Sunday during the 65th birthday and retirement thanksgiving service for a notable Nigerian pilot, Capt. Usman Saleh Yahaya, which held at ECWA Goodnews Church, Maitama, Abuja.

The VP said, “The scriptures says that we are the salt of the earth. Every time people ask me, they say, oh, why are you in government? And I say, why not?

“The calling of God upon our lives is that we must be in service. What is the point of light if it is kept under a bushel? What’s the point of salt if it does not go into the soup? If it is afraid of soup, what kind of salt is that?

“The scriptures say that we are the salt, so we should play the role of the salt. Now, salt is to make things better.”

The VP then extended the issue to the church as an organization, saying “It is the duty of the church never to lose hope. As a matter of fact, the only reason why hope is one of the central pillars of the church is because the history of mankind, the history of people, started from hopelessness. That is why we are there to give hope.”
