Nigerians have been advised not to travel abroad because of the worsening security situation across the country.
The advice came from the senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, on Tuesday, May 11, The Cable reports.
Okotie told fellow citizens that just like the Biblical David who withstood Goliath, Nigerians should face the nation's security menace instead of choosing to abandon their motherland.
The Christian cleric admonished Nigerians that with the armies of heaven marshalled for the safety of God's people, they should stand their ground.
“The armies of heaven are marshalled forth on our behalf. Remember, the taunting of Ishmael will not cause Isaac to lose the inheritance. So, stand your ground. Having done all, stand!
“Our God is Jehovah Sabaoth, the mighty God Almighty. Of whom shall we be afraid? Jesus Christ, Jehovah-Victor is the ark of God and leads his army. Arise! Arise!, soldiers of the cross. Time to take the battle to the gate!”
Meanwhile, the head of the House on the Rock Church, Paul Adefarasin, had labelled the country a scam, adding that something must be done about it. The respected cleric made this declaration in a video posted on Youtube.
According to him, the problem of the country is not because of Nigerians but because of the constitution. He noted that many Nigerians abroad were doing very well in all their areas of endeavours. Adefarasin said Nigeria could get better, do better and could actually win.
"We are suffering in Nigeria. In our hundreds of millions. Nigeria can easily be one of the three top countries in the world with kind of resources we have. And it is about time we let the international community know."
Going further, he said this is not about protecting democracy, nor about free and fair elections but about the people.
