The General Overseer of Christ the King Rescue Global Ministry, popularly known as Rescue Camp, Oke-Aro in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, Prophet Gabriel Olusola Onaolapo, has said that his church would be praying for Nigeria for peace and prosperity.
Dwelling on the state of insecurity in Nigeria and the role of the church, Onaolapo submitted that it would be suicidal to solely depend on prayer in tackling the country lingering security challenges.
In his submission, all hands must be on deck in ensuring that Nigerians would be able to once again sleep with their two eyes closed.
While advising government to take more pragmatic steps to arrest the ugly situation, he noted that conscientious and responsible parenting was also imperative in building a crime-free society.
His words: ” Relying on prayer alone will bring more deaths. As a nation, there are many things to be done to address this. We must take care of our senior citizens very well. This will help to reduce the level of corruption and stealing, especially by those in public office.
“The governments at all levels should tackle the high level of unemployment in the land. I was happy when this administration came on board and promised diversification and focus on agriculture. But all of a sudden, the herdsmen rose and began to kill farmers preventing them from going to their farmlands. Let’s not forget that the agriculture sector has the potential of creating massive jobs for our teeming youths who are roaming about the streets.
“The carrying capacity of Nigeria’s tertiary institutions is far lower than the number of students that are sitting for JAMB every year. This is one of the reasons that internet fraud is on the increase because an idle mind is the devil’s workshop. There are so many breeding grounds for criminality to thrive in Nigeria.
“Our political class must govern with conscience and should be promise keepers. These public office holders promise heaven and earth before they are elected, but immediately the election is won, all the promises are forgotten. It is too sad.”
