- Former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, wants Nigerians to be serious with praising God as a way to end the country’s many challenges
- Obasanjo says apart from praise, Nigerians should engage in prayers to God and have faith in Him
- Citing historical instances, Obasanjo notes that prayer, praise and faith in God can reshuffle the country and make it prosper
Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has asked citizens to adopt the three strategies of praise, prayers and faith in God in order to resolve the many challenges facing the country.
Speaking through his former aide, Doyin Okupe, at a church programme held at the Molete Baptist Church, Ibadan, Oyo state, Obasanjo noted that praising God, prayers and faith in Him are the three factors that could heal Nigeria, reshuffle and make it prosperous.
Daily Sun reports that the event was organised by the Gospel Musicians Association of Nigeria (GOMAN) under the leadership of Evangelist Funmi Aragbaye.
“With praise, prayer and faith, God will surely heal our land, reshuffle it and prosper this nation,” he said while disclosing that he loves praising God.
The former president urged Nigerians to draw lessons from the life of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, as stated in the religious books of the Christians, who went into battle using singers in front of his soldiers.
Obasanjo charged leaders and followers in Nigeria not to joke with faith in God, who has been so merciful to the country.
“I believe in the sovereignty of God and helplessness or lack of capacity of man to gratify the enormity of His grace and mercy over us.
“For everything that God brings to us, 90% of it, we are not even aware of. But the only thing we can give back to Him is praise. That is all He demands and desires from us,” he said.
Legit.ng earlier reported how the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) reportedly started investigating the $16 billion power project of the administration of Obasanjo.
The exact cost of the project has been a source of controversy as some people put it at $16 billion while others say it is $13.8 billion.
