A former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that Nigeria needs divine intervention to tackle myriad of challenges facing her today.

He made this known at the recent Carol of Nine Lessons held at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto Abeokuta, said Nigeria is in need of divine intervention.

Obasanjo, who sought God's intervention through praise and worship, said: 'The governor and I have agreed that all what Baba Adeboye said here tonight is what all of us have said. There is no more word, but you will assist me to sing this song. Nigeria needs something new, this time around. The song goes like this: 'Do something new in my life and do something new in this country…'' While he was still singing, shouts of 'Sai Buhari' reverberated.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye delivered the Christmas message, saying God is the only way out of Nigeria's predicament.

Other dignitaries in attendance included, traditional rulers led by their state chairman, the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Michael Adeniyi Sonariwo; Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba (Dr.) Aremu Adedotun Gbadebo; the Olu and paramount ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle; politicians; and various social, religious, cultural and political groups in the state. Student groups, artisans and market men and women were also in attendance.
