THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has said the present state of the country would soon experience a paradigm shift, as God Himself was ready and willing to take the nation higher.

But he warned that the Nigerians must be ready to do the will of God.

Also, Primate of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh said that misuse of grace of leadership given the Nigerian leaders had accounted for under development and related crises bedeviling the country.

While delivery a sermon during the 60th annual convention anniversary of the Church at the Redemption camp in Lagos at the weekend, Adeboye reiterated that the decision either to move to the level God had proposed for the nation depended largely on the what Nigerians would do with the available opportunity.

With his text taken from John 5: 2-9, the cleric pointed out that God had made up His mind to heal the nation of all infirmity, deliver it from its oppressors and release His abundance on the people.

He however emphasized the importance of obedience to the dictates of God and total adherence to His principles before God could   fulfill His own part of the bargain.

Adeboye charged Nigerians not to be deterred by the experiences they were going through at the moment, noting that it was just a passing phase which would be over in a short while.

He added that all nations of the world would soon celebrate Nigeria as a place where God had deposited His glory.

This year’s annual convention with the theme: “Come up higher” also marked the 60th year of the church.

Okoh in his sermon at the 102nd anniversary and dedication of the rebuilt gothic cathedral of Saint Barnabas Anglican Church of Kwara Diocese in Ilorin  warned that the grace would not continually be available especially when abused, adding that both the leaders and the led should return to God and place Nigeria where it should be among the comity of nations.

Meanwhile, the United States had earlier refered to Nigeria as a muslim state.

ON July 10, America’s top diplomat and the Assistant Secretary of State for African affairs Johnnie Carson at the Centre for Strategic International Studies in opening remarks before a congressional sub-committee hearing said

"Nigeria has the second largest Muslim population and in a few years will surpass Egypt to become the largest “MUSLIM STATE” in Africa.

Interestingly,  the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who leads Nigeria’s estimated over 80 million Christians sat barely three feet behind him as he made this powerful statement. It was jarringly symbolic of the administration’s near total black out and slight on the plight of Christians in Africa’s largest country who have been bombarded by a mass-murdering Islamist insurgency.

It is no more rumour that the western world categorizes Nigeria under Islamic states. This makes Nigeria's situation more pitiable.

Which way out?

What next?

Poster, I beg to disagree with ur heading.  Adeboye is not joining Bakare, he is advising on the way forward not with anger but with a manner for Nigerians to correct dia ways and be set for God's hand, the other guy is the exact opposite.  Thank u
