Cleric urges Nigerians to always stand by the truth

He said people should not be afraid to say the truth and do things rightly because they would be disliked by others, adding that ``if people do not talk about you, then you are nobody.''

Rev. Fr. Raymond Tyohemba, the Assistant Parish Priest of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Akwanga, Nasarawa State has urged Nigerians to always stand by the truth no matter the circumstance.

Tyohemba made the call while delivering a sermon on Sunday, which he read from the books of Jeremiah 1: 4-5.17-19, First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians 12: 31-13; 13 and Luke 4:21-30.

He explained that he had discovered that most people who were insulted and rejected in the society were those who stood by the truth because most people were either afraid or not ready to tell or accept the truth.

He encouraged people to change and join the sincere ones, noting that ``the society will still move on, despite the numerous challenges it is facing,because of the few sincere ones.''

He also advised people to be friendly and accommodate one another in order to make progress in life, saying being unfriendly would retard progress.

He attributed the rising rate of vices and crime in the society to the lack of sincerity and advised those indulging in the act to desist in order not to face the wrath of God.
