Fape said this in his presidential address presented to the 1st Session of the 14th Synod of the Diocese held at St. John’s Anglican Church, Ijoku, Sagamu.
Speaking on the theme of the 2023 Synod “Examine Yourself Whether You Are In The Faith ” 2 Corinthians 13: 5.
The President of the Synod submitted that the country would remain a truly great nation among the comity of nations if competent hands are engaged to manage its affairs.
“We plead with those who have been elected for good representation at the various levels where their services are needed.
“Economic recovery, adequate security, and infrastructural development should be on the front burner. There should be no blame game at the national level any longer since the new administration in view is an off-shoot of the outgoing one.
“Nigeria can be truly great. It only requires putting the right people in the various positions for the glory of Nigeria to show forth. Appointments must not be seen as a mere reward for political activists during electioneering campaigns.
“The President-elect must put together a cabinet that would enable him to fulfill his electioneering promises. The good Lord will guide our leaders in the path of greatness locally and nationally,” the Bishop added.
