Pastor Enoch Adeboye has lent his voice to the #Endpolicebrutality campaign and has also called for the restructuring of Nigeria.

The clergyman who is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCG, said this in a posted shared on his Instagram page on Tuesday night October 13.

According to him, it is either Nigeria is “restructured or we break up.”

‘l“I believe that we might want to look at the problems of Nigeria in a slightly different manner. Some people feel that all our problems will be over if Nigeria should break up. I think that is trying to solve the problems of Nigeria as if it is a Simple Equation. The problems of Nigeria will require quite a bit of Simultaneous Equation and some of them are not going to be Linear either – forgive me I am talking as a Mathematician.

“Why can’t we have a system of government that will create what I will call the United States of Nigeria? Let me explain. We all know that we must restructure. It is either we restructure or we break, you don’t have to be a prophet to know that one. That is certain – restructure or we break up.

“Now, we don’t want to break up, God forbid.

“Without any doubt, we must restructure and do it as soon as possible. A United States of Nigeria is likely to survive than our present structure, this will help across every strata from the police force, military, customs, civil service as a whole. Without any doubt the present system has just made things difficult for Nigerians young and old and I’m glad to see the new era that we are entering. As we continue to pray and take actions, Let somebody shout hallelujah!

We don’t need fasting, we need to change our mentality, Samklef to Adeboye

Pastor Adeboye declared 30-day fasting over the issues in Nigeria. However, it appears Samklef is not in support of it.

He believes fasting isn’t the solution as Nigerians have been doing it for years.

“I believe in God and one thing I know for sure is that God is not that wicked. Nigerians have been praying for 60 years.”

CHRYSORA MEDIA adds, Nigeria needs thinking, proper planning and implementation. Most of the things we pray over are things that only require thinking, planning and implementing.

Eid-el-Maulud: A Time To Take a Deeper Reflection ― Orji Kalu
Spread the love

Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu has felicitated with the Muslim community on the occasion of the 2020 Eid-el- Maulud celebration.

The former governor of Abia, while commending religious leaders and traditional rulers for promoting peace and unity across the country, urged Ingrains to use the season for sober reflection and devotion.

Kalu, in a goodwill message, admonished Muslim faithful to offer prayers for unity, peace and progress of Nigeria during the period.

He also applauded religious leaders for educating their followers and Nigerians at large on the need for religious tolerance and mutual respect.

He stressed that Nigerians must imbibe the spirit of togetherness, brotherhood and selflessness despite ethnic, religious and political differences for the sake of national unity.

Kalu urged Muslims to uphold the teachings of the Holy Quran while demonstrating forgiveness, piety, charity and patriotism in their daily pursuits.

“I join our Muslim brothers and sisters to mark this year’s Eid-el- Maulud in commemoration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.

“This is not a period for merry-making but a time for sober reflection as individuals and as a nation.

“We must demonstrate the exemplary qualities of Prophet Muhammed in our daily lives.

“The citizenry and government must work harmoniously for the sake of building a united Nigeria.

“It is only in an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, that sustainable development can be achieved.

“We must resist any attempt by unpatriotic and selfish individuals to divide the country.

“Nigeria must remain one united entity for Nigerians to reap the diverse potential of the heterogeneous nature of the country,” Kalu said.

Kalu used the opportunity to call on the youths to shun all acts of violence, while admonishing Nigerians to channel their grievances against government through legitimate platforms.

He noted that the recent #EndSARS protest across the country was hijacked by hoodlums, thugs and miscreants resulting in loss of lives and property.

He emphasised that the political class must live up to expectations in meeting the yearnings and aspirations of the people.

“The peaceful EndSARS protesters have made their demands known to the Federal Government and the President deserves commendation for the immediate dissolution of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

He, however, urged the youths and the Federal Government to engage in dialogue in a bid to address other demands of the protesters.

Spread the love

The FG has declared Thursday October 29, 2020 as Public Holiday to mark this year’s Eidul-Mawlid Celebration in commemoration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola (@raufaregbesola) who made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government, congratulated the Muslim faithful both at home and abroad for witnessing this year’s occasion.

He enjoined them to imbibe the spirit of love, patience and perseverance which are the virtues of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), adding that doing so would guarantee peace and security in the country.

The Minister admonished Muslims to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran in Chapter 4 Verse 59 which says: “O you who believe! Obey God and obey the Messenger, and those from among you who are vested with authority; and if you are to dispute among yourselves about anything, refer it to God and the Messenger, if indeed you believe in God and the Last Day. This is the best (for you), and fairest in the end”

Ogbeni Aregbesola enjoined Nigerians, particularly Muslims, at this moment, to abhor violence, lawlessness, wantonness and daylight robbery as witnessed across the country most recently, stressing that Nigeria is the pride of the black race and should provide responsible leadership for the greatness and development of the African continent and all black people.

While calling for a stop to all divisive tendencies across the country, he urged all Nigerians & the youth in particular, to embrace peace & cooperate with the President @MBuhari led-Administration in its effort to build a virile nation, which all citizens can be proud of.

Ogbeni Aregbesola who described the youth as the hope and future of the nation advised them further to deepen democracy and not dampen it. For him, it is with more democracy that we can overcome our challenges, noting that the challenges of nationhood that we face are surmountable if we work through the democratic process. He wishes all Muslims a happy Eidul- Mawlid Celebration and all Nigerians a Happy Holiday.
