Goodluck Jonathan has called for prayers and more support for the country to get out of the present challenges facing the country.

He spoke at the third session of the tenth Synod of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion in Abuja even as the head of the church, Primate Nicholas Okoh lamented the absence of good political leaders that Nigerians could look up to.

Speaking at the occasion, President Jonathan said,

“As a nation, from the beginning, we’ve been passing through a lot of challenges; the issues of kidnapping and armed robbery. Even to travel to very near cities such as Kaduna is becoming a nightmare to Nigerians. With constant prayers, the country will get through all its challenges.

“For me, who you all gave privilege of being President for five years, the little achievements we made were through your constant prayers. Whenever, I have opportunity, I thank you for the support you gave me.”

The head of the Anglican Church in the country, Primate Okoh on his part while lamenting the absence of servant leaders who could inspire trust in the people said:

“Under the servant leadership model, power comes from gaining the trust and support of people, and is given freely as a gift. Power is a means for helping others, and not an end in itself.

“It’s to be exercised on behalf of others. It’s only a tool, and its true test is determined by the improved welfare of people.

“Do we have agents of government who believe in being guided by the servant-leader spirit in relationship with their constituencies? Do they really serve their people or use them and dump till another election time?

“We must pray for servant leader politicians at federal,  state, and local government levels as well as traditional ruler.
