Don’t allow the challenges of the times depress you

As we go about carrying out our daily activities, I wish to appeal to all Nigerians, especially those facing very unpleasant situations, that they should not allow the challenges of the times to depress them. Rather, we must all remain steadfast in prayer and optimism, knowing that tough times do not last, but tough people with faith and trust in God do. The current economic downturn and widespread insecurity notwithstanding, being alive alone to witness another day is a sign that we are victors.

And so, we must embrace this period with the positive attitude of victors, knowing very well that we have the hope that the future will be better for us as individuals, as families and as a nation. Our leaders should ensure that they keep all the concerns of the youths and entire citizens on the front burner. These concerns cannot be neglected without serious consequences for the welfare of the people and the future of the country. The people must not come to a conclusion that they have been deceived in the promise of the government that they have been heard loud and clear.

• Most Rev. (Dr.) Alfred Adewale Martins, Archbishop of the Metropolitan See of Lagos
