The deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Okezie Kalu said that Nigerians are a part of President Bola Tinubu’s government to change the country to what all will be proud of.
The lawmaker said this at the conferment of Knight of John Wesley on a former member of the House, Sam Onigbo and his wife at the Methodist Church, Wuse, Abuja.
The deputy speaker asked for the continued support of the church for the government.
He assured the Church of a place in the President Bola Tinubu-led government, adding that Christians are part and parcel of the new administration in the country, according to the Nation.
He said: “If there are things that are difficult for you to achieve because you feel you are not part of the government, do not worry anymore, my office is open, just a little knock on the door and the door shall be open.
“The Bible says, ask and you shall receive, knock and the door shall be open unto you.
“I believe that we are part of this government that wants to grow the nation all of us will be proud of.
“One of yours in Methodist is there and I can assure you, I would provide the shield, protection, and support needed for the church.”
Kalu told the Church that by the mandate of the people of his Bende federal constituency of Abia state, the benevolence of the APC government, and his colleagues at the parliament, one of their own is now in the position of authority.
He assured the Church of his support, urging them to throw their weight behind the people-oriented policies of the federal government.
