General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he knows a name that could change Nigeria for good.
He said this on his Facebook page, attaching an image of himself with a text – Jesus.
“I know a name that can change the current state of Nigeria for Good,” he posted.
He said this hours after reacting to the killings of Christian worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State.
Adeboye in a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday, expressed sadness over the attack, saying every soul counts before God.
He wrote, “My heart goes out to everyone who has suffered from this gruesome attack. I am unable to grasp the evil that motivates one human being to deliberately take the life of another.
“Every soul counts before God, and I know that He is greatly displeased with this wickedness. I pray that God comforts the loved ones of the departed, and the people of Ondo at large.
May we never have cause to send such greetings again. And may Nigeria never know such bloodshed again”.
Earlier, the President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Rev. Israel Akanji, said the “carnage” in Owo is the height of the desecration of a place of worship.
In a message he signed on Monday, Akanji said, “The act is despicable, unacceptable, regrettable and sad. We can only look to God at such a time as this to have mercy on our land.
“These are negative signals indicating that there is no part of this country that is safe and that there are intentional designs to engender the collapse of our nation.
“We all must arise to ensure the discontinuation of this evil trend in our nation.
“This is also a negative omen and a mark of environmental unsuitability in our national preparation towards the election of 2023.”
Also, the President of the Evangelical Church Winning All appealed to the Federal Government to adopt modern technology to fight insecurity in the country.
