Eminent Nigerians, including general overseers, businessmen and women, industrialists, and faith-based organisations, yesterday called for the country’s restructuring.

They spoke in Lagos, at the fourth public lecture organised by the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria to mark its 62nd yearly National Convention. The convention: Making Nigeria Work: A job for all, would hold at the Church’s Camp Ground on Ajebo, Ogun State from November 13 to 19.

Personalities at the event include former Federal Minister of Health and Human Services, Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi, who was also the chairman of the occasion, Founder and Chairman of Sam Ohuabunwa Foundation for Economic Empowerment (SOFEE), Sam Ohuabunwa, as well the General Overseer of the Foursquare, Rev. Felix Meduoye and his wife.

The general overseer said the purpose of the public lecture was to commemorate the annual convention of the church. According to Meduoye, the church believes in civil government and had over the years, demonstrated this by organising public lectures to sensitise on the need to believe in the country.

The chairman, Adelusi-Adeluyi, commended the church for organising the lecture, adding that Christians must be aware of the tools they have in to use them judiciously.

He described Nigeria as a nation that is going through distress experience in both economic and, political dimensions. He expressed concern that Nigeria had exposed its citizens to uncertainty without knowing what would happen tomorrow.

He said: “Every Nigerian must realise that heaven helps those who help themselves. If Nigeria is bad let us fix it, rather than blaming others. Ohuabunwa identified political issues, election rigging, poor governance, insecurity, inflation, endemic corruption and high rate of crime and unemployment as the bane of the country.

While calling on churches and individuals to emphasis on unity, he said: “We must weep and pray for our country and seek what to do to get the right leadership.

Ohuabunwa urged political leaders, parents and church leaders, teachers, civil servants to value honesty, charity, love and good neighbourliness.
