Cleric urges Nigerians to surrender to God for economic, others revival

The General Overseer, God is Able Evangelical Mission, Rev. Timothy Akinola Agbe has called on Nigerians to return to God

The General Overseer, God is Able Evangelical Mission, Rev. Timothy Akinola Agbe has called on Nigerians to return to God for the country to enjoy peace, assuring that there is no problem that is beyond God’s solution.

He made the call during at a media briefing which took place in his Church in Ketu, Lagos where he announced the church’s 30th anniversary scheduled for November 1 to November 7, 2021.

The event with the theme: “His workmanship” will be celebrated alongside his 70th birthday, which falls within the period.

Agbe, who also lamented the absence of God’s fear from the heart of many Nigerians, remarked that where there is no fear of God, the enemy takes over.

He traced the origin of Nigeria’s problems to when parents could not train their wards to fear God and when the government also removed religious knowledge from the school syllabus, adding that what we are experiencing today are the ripple effects of those mistakes.

“Nigeria leaders too have closed their ears to God. They refused to be counseled. We should all return to God and admit our mistakes. When we own up to our errors and turn to Him in full repentance, our economy, education, health sector, transportation, among others, will receive a boost as God is well able to restore life and peace to all sectors,” he said.

Agbe outlined this year’s conference to feature various activities including, celebration of the General Overseer’s 70th birthday on Monday, November 1, 2021; the remaining days activities include, a symposium with the theme: “The Responsibility of the Church to the Community as well as the Community’s responsibility to the Church”, to feature a panel of discussants to be led by Pastor Muyiwa Adebirigbe; Praise Night to feature Bukola Bekes; revival; ministers’ conference, night vigil and thanksgiving service, as well as giving out of awards.

The cleric advised that youths should be giving a chance, remembering that Gen. Yakubu Gown (rtd.) became the Head of State at the age of 32 while he was single, while many of the leaders today got to their various positions as youths.
