Bishop Oyedepo urged Nigerians to therefore pray to God to send Nigeria a deliverer so people could have a rest of mind.
“I think I am prompted by the spirit we need to pray for this nation. I warned this nation in 2015 that we were heading for crisis and trauma, many were washing their mouth. They are off today.
“God does not require consensus to raise a prophet. I saw a nation going down the drain, I cried. There are many prophets of politicians who speak what they want to hear.
“I have been very silent, what we need now is not a leader, it is a deliverer. Almost nothing remains except the church that can be called a nation.”
Legit.ng gathers that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, attended the programme on Thursday night.
