Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has raised hope that Leah Sharibu, the Christian girl still in the custody of Boko Haram terrorists, would be set free.
THEWILL recalls that Sharibu is still being held hostage after the release of 105 other students of Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, earlier abducted by the terrorists group.
Osinbajo gave the assurance while addressing participants at a “Cross Concert 2018” in commemoration of the Easter Celebration.
While describing the Cross, on which Jesus Christ was nailed as a symbol of “victory” for those who believed in Lord Jesus, Osinbajo said victory was always assured in every challenge.
“As I understand the Cross, I believe that what happened was so unique. Apart from the death, there was a trial before victory.
“Christ was accused of many crimes and given a death sentence. What Christ went through was beyond dying. He had already taken the pain that is why we can proudly say that the Cross is an evident of our own victory.
“Leah has stood up to stand by her faith and truth. O! I am certain on my mind the Cross is able to deliver her. I am excited that we Christians are praying for Leah who is still being held captive by insisting she will stand by the Cross of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“The most exciting thing that a man can have is the knowledge here on earth that we are Victor and in Heaven we will be counted among those that will reign with Christ in Heaven. There is nothing better than that. It is a win-win situation.”
