Bonnke to apply divine approach to resolving Nigeria’s problems
German Pentecostal evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke has expressed confidence that God is capable of resolving Nigeria’s many conflicts and the social malaise across the country, especially kidnapping, ritual killing and terrorism.
In a world press conference at the Sheraton Hotels and Towers Ikeja, the chairman, Central Working Committee of the Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke’s Farewell Crusade and Passing the Burning Torch Conference in Africa, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said the worldwide minister of the gospel is being led by God to apply divine approach in bringing solution and healing to Nigeria.
The crusade is scheduled to start from Wednesday, November 8 to Sunday, November 12, 2017 in Lagos.
“Nigeria is plagued by socio-economic corruption and spiritual pollution like the menace of the Badoo Boys of Ikorodu, ritual killings and armed robbery in some parts of the country, ethnic disturbances and secessionist tendencies,” said Bamgbola. “Jesus feels the pain Nigerians feel, and so does Bonnke. And this is why God specifically told him to go back to Nigeria one more time.”
The crusade scheduled to hold beside the Sparklight Estate, opposite OPIC Events Centre, Isheri, after the Berger Bus Stop, Lagos, is expected to attract not less than 30 million Nigerians, with at least 10 million people attending every day with participants from neighbouring countries of Ghana, Cameroun, Togo, Benin, and Mali.
Bamgbola added that the Farewell Crusade would be complemented by a sideline event called, “Passing the Burning Torch” conference, where willing ministers of God in Africa are expected to catch the Reinhard Bonnke fire for exploits.
According to Bamgbola, “He (Bonnke) had said many times that this country has great potentials but is being held down by forces militating against it. The result is associated vices that have held down economic growth. Inflation has remained high at double digits just as unemployment ensures more than 29 million youths remain out of jobs.
“We hear of a number of kidnap cases in Nigeria; rising incidents of armed robbery as well as rape and sexual harassment against minors. Youth restiveness across the country seems to have created pockets of violence in some regions, forcing the army to take measures to police the country. While these persist, we see government struggling with lean resources and rising corruption in private and public sectors.”
