(By Iheanyi Ezinwo)-We are under a wicked rule and divine judgment is determined against wicked rulers in the country unless they change their ways. This is the message that was delivered by Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of the Living Faith Church world wide, in a Monday service broadcast live from Canaan land, Otta, Ogun State in Nigeria.
The man of God, who observed that a lot of things have fallen apart in Nigeria with unacceptable killings, and energetic youths roaming about without jobs as never before in the country’s history, said that Nigeria does not belong to a single individual but belongs to the Lord. He reminded leaders that they are caretakers, and that those who do not humble themselves and reconsider their ways in the midst of the mourning across the nation will be disgraced out of office.
“Those in leadership should not allow God to kick them into the forest and if they do not key into this warning of today so many of them will not live to see 2019. No agent of the devil will cause problems for this nation any more.
“Our God removes kings and set up kings. Anyone that will not allow this nation to rest will be laid to rest. No one voted for Joseph but God set him aside for special works, God remains God of strange works and of strange acts,” Bishop Oyedepo declared while reiterating that Nigeria is not a private business of anybody but God’s own nation.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his administration is making progress in the fight against corruption and that the Federal Government had recorded progress in the recovery of stolen public funds and assets despite vicious and stiff resistance.
President Buhari gave this indication in his address as Nigeria marks its 58th Independence Anniversary in Abuja on Monday. The president, who maintained that evidence of prudent use of resources by his administration is manifest for all to see, attributed positive developments in the country to “collective pursuit of a common vision through hard work and dedication, after the missed opportunities and disappointments that followed the return to democracy in 1999”, while assuring Nigerians of a free and fair elections in 2019.
