General Evangelist, Christ Apostolic Church, Prophet Kayode Abiara, says the call by some Nigerians for revolution is misplaced.
However, he said instead of revolution, what the country needs to tackle the myriad of problems affecting it are prayers and godly living.
He, therefore, urged Nigerians to pray fervently, saying it was prayers that had kept the country together.
Abiara said this in Lagos during a press conference to herald the church’s Power and Fire Night, with the theme, ‘He Will Do It Again with Signs and Wonders’.
The cleric said, “If not for prayers of the Christians and the Muslims, the country would have collapsed. We must thank God for the churches and mosques.
“The call by some people for revolution is misplaced. The situation in Nigeria does not require revolution but prayers.
“Instead of shedding blood through revolution, Nigerians should pray. God answers prayers. I believe God will answer our prayers. I believe in prayer, not in revolution.”
He said though the compensation would not bring back lost lives, it would go a long way in making the victims or victims’ families happy.
On amnesty for members of the fundamentalist Boko Haram sect, the cleric said the programme would not solve the problems of terrorism in Nigeria.
Abiara said, “Whether they have amnesty or not, problems would never cease. When you grant them amnesty, another group will come up.
“If you grant them, you must be ready to grant amnesty to armed robbers and other militant groups. The Federal Government must think deeply. It must seek the face of God. Violence will not cease unless Jesus Christ comes. I urge those on the committee to seek the face of God.”
He said rather than the government scratching the problems of insecurity on the surface, it was proper to tackle the problems that threw up violence such as corruption, unemployment religious bigotry, among others.
He urged the government to reduce hunger, poverty and corruption in the land.
He lamented the poor power supply situation in the country and implored the government to provide electricity to increase industrial capacity.
