The problem of Nigeria has been identified as spiritual.
This is the position of lead Bishop of Worldwide Anglican Church in Nigeria and Spokesman of World Bishops Council, Africa Chapter, Seun Adeoye.
He said Nigeria’s problem is spiritual and President Muhammadu Buhari does not possess the spiritual capability to tackle it.
The presiding Bishop of Sufficient Grace Truth Christian Church, Okinni, Osun State, who spoke from the Book of 1 Samuel Chapter 5 noted that just as Dagon had no answer to the Ark of the Covenant of God, President Buhari’s spiritual level cannot match Nigeria’s woes.
The cleric, who claimed he has been in the presence of God since the past 82 days, said he saw Nigeria raging in battles against demons from the kingdom of darkness in his vision.
Narrating his vision, the bishop said Nigeria has a weak leadership who were overwhelmed by those 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.”
