*I’ll keep fighting for humanity till I die – OBJ
*Tone down your criticism of political leaders, Okorocha tells pastors
By Luminous Jannamike
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said there can be no peace in the country without justice and equity.
Osinbajo stated this, as former President Olusegun Obasanjo promised to continue to fight for humanity till he dies.
This is even as former governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, charged clerics to tone down their criticism of leaders to avoid derailing them.
The trio spoke as they received the Sapphire Award of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Abuja weekend.
Other recipients include Emeritus Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Pastor Enock Adeboye, Cardinal Olubunmi Okogie, Chief Arthur Eze, Mummy Esther Ajayi, while kidnapped Dapchi school student, Leah Sharibu was given the Young Christian Achiever’s award.
Osinbajo, who spoke on behalf of other recipents, said: “As we have seen in the past few years, there’s a growing ethnic and religious chauvinism, and almost intemperate, vehement and violent dismissal of the views of people of other persuasions and faith without adequate consideration.
“At the same time, there is also the rise of cultural and identity politics. The answer to hate and intolerance and conflicts is the gospel of Jesus Christ. We must believe enough in it, to live it out as our article of faith.
