Stay, fight for your country, Okotie tells Nigerians



The Shepherd Superintendent, Household of God Church, Oregun, Lagos, Reverend Chris Okotie, has urged Nigerians not to take flight from their fatherland, but fight against insecurity in the country.

In a statement issued yesterday, Okotie said Nigerians should stand up to the challenges posed by terrorists, kidnappers and other criminal elements rather than abandon the country to the aggressors.


Quoting copiously from the scriptures to support his admonition, Okotie, who was responding to social media reports, in which some clerics urged Nigerians to escape from the country in view of the deteriorating security situation in the country, urged resilience on the part of the masses.

His words: “David faced Goliath. Some trust in chariots and horses, as a veritable escapist instrumentality, but we will remember the name of the Lord. The hireling runs, but the true Shepherd repels the canine monstrosity of the old fox.

“No uncircumcised Philistine will annex the inheritance of the saints in light in Nigeria. They lurk in our forests in covert stratagem. They parade our streets, by ways and high ways in subtle disguise. ”

“Yet Jehovah has discovered their witty inventions. His indignation will consume them in holy jealously. Fear not, beloved of the Lord, for there is a sound of victory.”
