LAGOS SEPTEMBER 4TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The need for religious leaders to use their platforms to preach peace and harmony will be the focus as some prominent past and present Nigerian leaders and their counterparts across the world are expected to meet at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) soon.
Those expected at the event include Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former president Goodluck Jonathan, former president Olusegun Obansanjo and other past and serving presidents of other African nations. The occasion is meant to herald the golden jubilee and thanks giving service ?of the founder of Living Christ Mission Incorporated, Professor Daddy Hezekiah.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Monday, October 2, the chairman national planning committee of the event, Professor Obiekwe Nwanolue, said the golden jubilee celebration is put together to discuss how peace, which the celebrant stands for, could be achieved.
While urging Nigerians to rededicate themselves to God so that the country can attain its pride of place in the world, Professor Nwanolue also advised Christians to delve into all legitimate spheres of human endeavour in order to turn the fortunes of the country around.
He advised church leaders to stop pauperizing the people by asking them to ‘sow seeds’, stressing they should instead focus on preaching holiness and how to make their followers succeed. According to him, dignitaries across the globe will be gracing this occasion including serving and former presidents of several countries. Zambia, Central Africa Republic (CAR), delegation from America, Britain, among others, adding that the celebration has transcended beyond the activities of the church.
Speaking on the celebrant, Professor Nwanolue said the man of God has trained and empowered many people in several professions who have made serious impact in the society.
His words: “He is a man who has predicated his teaching and aspirations on truth, holiness, righteousness and salvation. He does not hear any other language other than being transparent and proven integrity.
“Contrary to what some men of God preach, he is a man that genuine children of God should not be politicians, soldiers, policemen, lawyers because such professions should be saturated with genuine children of God so that they can simply sanitize he ills that have bedeviled those participating professions.”
Professor Nwanolue also used the opportunity to give a note of caution to some of religious leaders using their pulpit to score cheap political favour.
“We have many men of God using religion to deceive people just to score cheap political goals. Religious leaders should face their pulpit and pray for the country. If they use their pulpit to advice the leaders of this country, the country would have gone far even though the political leaders don’t listen to advice.
“What they are doing is wrong because politics should be for politicians while raw responsibility of the men of God is to pray for the country. They should call you order with sincerity of purpose the political leaders that are not doing well,” he said.
