General Evangelist of Cherubim & Seraphim Church Worldwide, Joseph Otubu has called on Christians to unite and pray for the peace, security and stability of the country esp-ecially as the nation prepares for general elections in a few weeks time.
According to reports, Elder Otubu made the call while delivering a sermon titled: “The office bearer of the church,” at the enthronement of Israel Akinadewo as the new Baba Aladura for Motailatu Church Cherubim & Seraphim at Ajah, Lekki, Lagos.
He enjoined Christians to intensify their prayers for a peaceful and an egalitarian society in every part of the country, stressing the need for Christians to intercede for Christians in the nation’s North East, noting that thousands of lives are being killed in the area, while others live in fear.
Otubu explained that God is the only way out of Nigeria’s predicament, adding that Nigerians must strive to stand on the path of truth, respect for human dignity and love towards all God’s creation.
Vanguard reports that Bishop of Christ the Light, Dr. Gabriel Faleye, Bishop of Goodnews Miracle Bible Church, Bishop George Amu, Chairman OAIC, Dr. David Onanuga, ordained Baba Aladura of Motailatu Church Cherubim & Seraphim, Elder Israel Akinadewo (Omo Eri) and chairman, CAN, Lagos chapter, Apostle Alex Bamgbola during the enthronement service.
“What we need now is the unity of Christians to pray fervently for peace to reign in the country, especially in the northern part of the country,” he said, “Southern Christians should listen to the plight of our northern compatriots where majority of Christians cannot hold normal services in their churches.
“It is pertinent for us in the southern part of the country not to forget our brethern in the North East by fervently praying and caring for them,” he appealed.
Otubu noted that the frequent attacks on innocent citizens in the North and other parts of the country are the handiwork of enemies of Nigeria, intended to plunge the country into turmoil.
Speaking after his enthrone-ment as Baba Aladura of the church, Elder Akinadewo urged members to pray for him for God’s divive grace and mercy for him to lead aright and finish strong and for him to impact positively in the church.
