As world renowned evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke’s global crusade will hold in Ekiti State from December 5. This was just as the global religious body under the banner of Christian for All Nations (CFAN), has urged Nigerians to continually pray against the scourge of kidnapping and increasing crime rates in the country, for sustainable peace to be enjoyed among the citizens.

The body of Christ also assured that God will intervene in the political leadership of the country and provide a leader that would bring the desired changes to the Nigerian populace.

CFAN advised that it was high time all Nigerians continually prayed against rising waves of crimes among youths, which the Christian body said should be a source of worry to all citizens.

 The CFAN spoke on Tuesday at a press conference heralding a 4-day crusade organised by the church which will have Bonke’s successor, Pastor Daniel Kolenda, ministering to millions of participants.

The event will hold along Ado-Iworoko road in Ado-Ekiti metropolis between December 5 and 8.

The chairman of the Local Organising Committee for the crusade, Bishop Oluwadiya Clement Abifade, who addressed newsmen, said the body of Christ are not unaware of the challenges afflicting the nation and that the crusade was part of the ways to seek spiritual solutions to them.

“We pray that God will take care of our political situation. This crusade is part of the ways for God to mould the hearts of our leaders. When God dwells in our hearts, we will do what we think will be in the interest of the nation.”

Abifade added that the crusade would afford Christians the opportunity to counsel the Nigerian citizens to refrain from crimes, especially the youths.

“We are not ignorant of the fact that crimes are on the increase everyday and as Christians, we must show concern through constant prayers. 

“We are taking that into consideration and I believe that the security apparatuses are working with us. The police, NSCDS and the DSS. We are ensuring security of lives and property during this programme.

Abifade said “the religious programme is targeted at fulfilling the mandate of God for Christ and to spread the gospel in line with Matthew 28 Versus 29. 

“We hope that the angels of God shall descend. There shall be deliverance and Nigeria shall be in peace”, he said.

Abifade revealed that the man of God and his entourage will arrive the state on Wednesday and will visit Governor Kayode Fayemi, whom he said has been playing pivotal roles for the success of the religious event.

The parliament had their first sitting where issues relating to inclusiveness and the need to be given a chance to contribute to national development were deliberated. (NAN)
