“The Methodist people send their greetings of love, and we pray that this country will not disintegrate under your watch. The Lord will preserve this country.”

The vice president thanked the Methodist Church for its prayers for peaceful coexistence in Nigeria.

He prayed that the Archbishop’s tenure would be of tremendous benefit to the people of Abuja and the country at large.
