The former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has taken the country’s unending crisis to God. He prayed for divine intervention in the affairs of the country, especially for the 2015 elections asking God to do something new in the country.
Olusegun Obasanjo said that the situation in the country requires nothing but divine interventions and a quick one at that.
Obasanjo made the call Monday night during the 2014 Ogun State Christmas Carol and Service of Nine Lessons held at the June 12 Cultural Centre,Kuto,Abeokuta.
The former president, gave the mammoth crowd at the venue a shocker, because when he was called to address the congregation, he started to sing praise and worship songs to the amazement of all.
“I and the governor have agreed that all what Baba Adeboye said here tonight is what all of us have heard he said.
There is no more word. But you will assist me to sing this song, Nigeria needs something new this time around.
“The song goes thus, ‘Do something new in my life and do something new in this country’,”Olsegun Obasanjo declared.
The whole hall went into jubilation as shout of “Sai Buhari” rent the air as Baba continued in his song which changed the tune of the programme.
Delivering the Christmas Message, The General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye said only God can engineer a way out of the present predicament the country is facing now.
The Man of God, who took his sermon from the Book of John, Chapter 14 verses 6, advised Nigerians to seek for God’s way as that is the only solution to our problems,either personally or collectively.
“Jesus is the way, the life and the truth,no one gets to my father,except through me. But let me take one of the three names,Way,Life and Truth, the one I’m taking tonight is the way. As we are now, we all have to go back to the Lord in terms of needy or lacks and He will show us the way. He is the Prince of Peace, all things shall be done in the name of Jesus.
“Anyone going through any storm today, I decreed that it will be still. The present situation we found ourselves as individual and as a nation,only God is the solution. Jesus is the way out, He is the way in, way forward and the way upward, and not that alone,He is the way where there is no way, the way out of trouble and the way into the joy.
“I want to admonish us all to hold God firmly as He is the only way who can heal any ailments in us. Jesus is a great promoter, He is the only one that can promote you and stand by you, promotion from any human being cannot be seen as everlasting one,as the way to lift you,they will be looking for another way or a mistake from your end to run you down completely.
“Lift your eyes and hands onto God as He alone can lift and promote you without any hindrances, human promotion cannot go beyond the limit of the tallest of the person. As a nation, only God can promote us from sorrow to joy,from difficulty to happiness,from little to plenty and from fear to peace,” Adeboye said.
The event which lasted for over five hours has in attendance all the big spiritual leaders in the country who prayed for the State, the nation and especially,called on God to take control of next year’s general elections in the country for peace and tranquility to reign.
