Oyogist has learned that the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo has charged world leaders to remain calm even in the midst of adversity.

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, said the vice president virtually-delivered a keynote address at the 25th year anniversary conference of the Redeemer’s International Leadership Academy (RILA)


The theme of the conference, which was organised by RCCG was titled “Winning in Adversity.’’

According to Osinbajo, it is in times of adversity or difficulty, or hardship that leaders are most relevant and most needed.

“The leader cannot afford to lose his cool or his focus. He must calm himself down and calm the people down as well.“When all is well, there is no need for guidance, encouragement or instruction, but it is especially in the midst of wars, conflicts, insurgency, famines, danger, and fear, that people look to leadership.

“He made reference to the story of Moses and the Israelites in the Bible.The vice president said that Moses looked up to God for help and God spoke to Him..

“But note that Moses first gave the people confidence in the power of God to deliver and fulfill His promises.“He had not yet heard from God on this particular problem, but because he knew the God he served, he was able to say this with confidence.

“In adversity, especially where the future looks bleak, people want to give up, retreat, go back and they certainly don’t want to go forward.’

’Osinbajo, tasked Christian leaders, to act in faith and not fear when they were faced with a crisis, especially existential crisis.

God knows all things; we must obey in faith even when we are afraid.“This is the burden of leadership, especially leadership according to the principles of scripture,” he said.
