Seun Adeoye, the Lead Bishop of the Worldwide Anglican Church in Nigeria and Spokesman of the World Bishops Council, Africa Chapter, stated Nigeria’s crisis is spiritual, and President Muhammadu Buhari lacks the spiritual capacity to address it.
President Buhari’s spiritual level cannot meet Nigeria’s troubles, according to the presiding Bishop of Sufficient Grace Truth Christian Church, Okinni, Osun State, who preached from 1 Samuel Chapter 5 of the Bible.
In his vision, the clergyman, who claims to have been in God’s presence for the last 82 days, saw Nigeria blazing in battles against demons from the domain of darkness.
According to the bishop, Nigeria has a weak leadership that has been swamped by these forces.
“I saw only Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo trying to fight back,” he said.
“I am a man of prayers, God had told me to be before him for 100 days, today marks 82 days. In the process of praying for my beloved country.”
The cleric said President Buhari only places emphasis on the physical aspect but, according to him, Nigeria’s problem is far more than that.
Continuing, he said “The man at the helm of affairs in Nigeria is the father figure of the country. He is expected to fight all battles at all fronts on behalf of the country but Buhari’s spirituality is inadequate to tackle our problems”, he stated.
He, therefore, asked Osinbajo to mobilise men of God across Nigeria to gather for prayers for the country, “maybe the Almighty will be merciful and help Nigeria”.
The cleric urged Nigerians to start praying fervently too on the 2023 general election because the country needs “a David, a man in the heart of God” to take over and lead a new Nigeria.
Bishop Adeoye noted that, “As it is, no one should think of any change until 2023. We will need to endure the present situation and pray for the emergent of a wise man from the East as our new president.”
