“I believe in Nigeria and that is why I am still here, and still praying for Nigeria. But I consider it a demotion if I am invited to become the president of Nigeria. I am called for a global impact. I saw this since 1984.
“Even the devil knows that you can’t be genuinely sold-out to serving God, and not stand out in life.
“Since 1976, I have never missed a change of story. I was 19 years old when I prayed to God not to let me leave a village the way I met it. So I was 19 when I encountered destiny. I have not been tired going out for God since 1976”.
He urged members of the church to pray for grace to be released on them for global impact for Christ.
