Former Nigeria’s President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has dropped the hints about the type of president Nigeria needs in 2023.
Speaking at a Global Crusade organised by the Deeper Life Bible Church, in Abeokuta on Tuesday, said the nation needs men of integrity like Biblical Noa and Job.
The former president, who advised Nigerians to seek the face of God in critical time like this and to have faith in Him, said Nigeria and the entire world required God’s visitation.
Expressing optimism that whatever the situation and condition is, all will be well with Nigeria, Obasanjo, said: “If you consider what is going on in our cities, our states, our country, our region of West Africa, our continent and indeed our globe, our world required crusade of this nature.
“Some people accused us, Christians of `religiosity’ without spirituality. Yes, that has been the position of the world even in the time of Jesus Christ, but should we lose hope? No.
“There is no time in the world that things have been bad that it is not the children of God that stood out.” Noah stood out in his time and also Job, who God described as a man that feared Him and shun evil and a man of great integrity.
“Nigeria needs such men of integrity at this present moment. I believe that because of these kinds of men and women of such virtue in Nigeria, God will open his eyes and have mercy on this country.
“Unless those who don’t want to be honest with themselves will say that all is well, but if we trust in God and believe in Jesus Christ all will be well. Children of God, whatever may be our situation, whatever may be the condition, let us have faith in God, and all will be well.”
The General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, in his message, said that God had prepared complete dominion over the circumstances of the world through Jesus Christ.
According to Kumuyi, the only way to have complete dominion over problems and other circumstances was to live in holiness and consecration to God through Jesus Christ.
