The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, has assured public workers in the country that the inability of state governments across the country to pay their salaries will soon become a thing of the past.
The governor gave the assurance on Sunday at the 13th Anniversary of the Prayer Centre Church of God in Akure, the state capital.
Mimiko identified the inability of state governments to pay workers’ salaries as the greatest challenge facing the country today. He urged the citizens to continue to pray for the country.
The governor submitted that despite the numerous sins committed in the country on a daily basis, “God has continued to show uncommon mercy to Nigeria,” adding that “when the whole world thought that it’s over for the country, God comes to our rescue and our country is now at peace.”
He said, “We should all be thankful to God in this country, because many people thought that by today our country will be in a crisis but I’m glad to say that each time we thought that it’s all over for Nigeria, God always come to our rescue. Where we are today is because of the prayers of saints.
“God promised that there will be peace and prosperity in our palaces, what we are going through today in this country will soon pass away, even the inability of state governments to pay salaries.”
In his sermon, Pastor Ade Ojo called for spiritual rebirth among Nigerians, noting that Nigerians must remain committed to the service of God for the nation to experience transformation and breakthrough.
