Cleric faults leaders, says they should seek God’s face to save nation
The Bishop, Christ Redemption Bible Church, John Oluwadare has stated that Nigerian leaders are responsible for the woes currently looming the growth of the country.
The cleric spoke in a press briefing to intimate the public on the forth-coming annual convention of the church theme: ‘Bread of Life’ to be held on October 10th -15th this year.
Oluwadare who called for genuine national prayer to save the nation advised that if the leaders would embrace righteousness, the country would be a better place for all.
He said: “This year convention is centered around winning souls into God’s kingdom though there are many churches in the country, but we have only few people that are genuine Christians and that is why we have found ourselves in this kind of situation.
“We need to intensify on prayers in this nation. If we return back to God there will be no need for agitation anywhere. When we engage in genuine prayers God will intervene in our situation and deliver us. The Church of Christ has not failed in anyway but the problems are our leaders, Nigeria has bad leadership. The giver of all things is God and the reason why the nation is where it is today is because they have abandoned God the source of all things.”
The cleric also charged that the family has an important role to play in the society, adding that that is what formed sane community that will culminate in good leadership.
“The family has important roles to play in the society. This convention will not be completed without addressing issues regarding the family. It is the family that produces presidents, governors, senators and commissioners. If the child does not have good upbringing the society is not safe for anyone. That is why parents and guardians need to serve as good role models to the younger ones so that the future of our country can be preserved.” He said.
