National Presidents of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Reverend Supo Ayokunle, and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Wale Oke, have declared that Nigeria will bounce back regardless of the country’s many challenges besetting its progress.
Ayokunle and Oke gave the assurance at the flag-off of the eight-day 39th annual Holy Ghost Convention of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, with the theme: “Abundant Rain”, which held at the Precious Cornerstone University (PCU) campus, Garden of Victory, Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
The clerics urged Nigerians not to lose hope in the corporate existence of the country.
Ayokunle and Oke also bemoaned the nation’s state of affairs that has led to insecurity, agitation for self-determination, banditry, kidnapping and insurgency, blaming it on the ungodly ways of the leaders as well as the led in the country.
According to the CAN president, ungodliness and corruption have become ways of life in the country, calling for repentance. He added that the prevailing situation in the country was caused by people’s neglect of God’s words.
He stated that corruption has become a way of life in Nigeria, lamenting that Christians have joined the people engaging in corrupt practices in holding the country down.
PFN president Oke, who is also the Presiding Bishop of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Ibadan, quoted from the Bible to buttress his point.
The renowned cleric prayed for an end to the problems currently affecting the nation, saying, ‘We terminate corruption in Nigeria. We terminate Boko Haram insurgents; we terminate kidnapping and all manner of crimes in the land. There shall be peace in Nigeria’.
