General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says the socio-economic and security challenges confronting the country need spiritual solution.
Adeboye noted that the nation’s political leaders appeared to have tried their best in seeking solutions but that Nigeria urgently needs divine intervention.
The clergyman stated these when he paid a courtesy visit to the Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani, at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, the state capital.
Governor Sani, however, noted that President Bola Tinubu needed the prayers and support of clerics like Adeboye to place the nation on the path of greatness.
Governor Sani said, “We also believe that from the remarks you made just now that our country at this critical time requires intervention from people like you who are tested and who have in the past intervened and helped us to find solutions to our problems.
“We believe you won’t be tired. We also need an intervention at this critical time.
“Many Nigerians are loosing hope and they have been very cautious about the future but like I said, we are going through difficulties because of what happened in the past and right now we have a President who is determined and focused and ready to take the country to a greater height and I have no doubt, with your intervention and prayers, our President will certainly get it right.
“So far, Mr President has taken some very important steps towards moving our country forward but most of these steps are things that might be difficult at this critical time because they are major reforms we need; both economic reforms, as well as social reforms.”
Adeboye, who said he was in Kaduna to offer prayers in order to give people hope on the current condition in the country, said he trusted in God that the problems would soon be overcome.
He said, “I am delighted to be here again. I was here about two years ago with the former governor. At that time, I came to pray for some of my members who were kidnapped and were miraculously rescued. I came to encourage their families to let them know that all will be well.
“I have come again this time around because it has become more clearer to us that the problems our nation is facing is more than political. Our problems will require quite a bit of spiritual solution.
“We as a country are blessed. We are blessed with people with great intelligence. We are blessed with all manners of resources and yet we have so many problems.
“It is not as if people in authority are not trying their best. They are doing as much as humanly possible and then we found out that when you have problems that are beyond human ability to solve them, you call on the Almighty. The reason we call Him Almighty is because He has the power to solve all problems.
“So, we have been going round in our own little ways to support the efforts of all the various governments and parastatals to call on the Almighty to come to our aid because we need help. We need help and we need it urgently.”
