Yinka Kolawole in Osogbo
A clergyman, Bishop Seun Adeoye of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry (SGTM), Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State has stated that the nation’s economy is failing and the standard of living of people are drastically falling because Nigerians trusted in men rather than God as an agents of change.
The cleric who stated this in Osogbo on Sunday noted that Nigeria’s present situation is beyond one man or one party to provide the solution, saying President Muhammadu Buhari should invite more financial experts no matter their affiliations to help put the nation’s economy in the right perspectives.
“While the specialists are working, all of us will be crying to the Almighty God for intervention in the nation’s affairs for Him to bring about a turnaround in all spheres of our country. All I know is that President Buhari is not a super human being; he cannot be God but he is a man like all of us.
“We also need to pray to God for forgiveness. Of course, God will be sad about the massacres of hundreds of innocent souls and the flowing of blood across our land. We must pray for our leaders most of who are arrogant, deceptive, thieves and liars for change of hearts if we want to come out of this mess”, Bishop Adeoye said.
Quoting from the Books of Jeremiah Chapter 18 verses 5 to 7 and the Books of Psalms 108 and 146, the cleric admonished Nigerians to put their trusts only in God while urging President Buhari not to close his ears to advises of prominent Nigerians on how to move the nation forward.
According to him, “Religious leaders and individuals who have opportunity of meeting the president should not appear only as good ambassadors but should tell him the gospel truth of the untold hardship, hunger and suffering in the land.”
