Nigeria under siege - Christopher Kolade
A former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Dr Christopher Kolade, says Nigeria is under siege following Boko Haram killings. Speaking at an interdenominational World Day of prayer held under the theme, 'Streams in the Desert', organised by The Salvation Army, Shomolu, Lagos, Kolade said, 'I can say without any doubt that Nigeria in which I was born and in which I grew up as a child is far better than what it is today, but the Lord has revealed to me that Nigeria's problems are not beyond His power.'
He stated that enormous resources abound in the country for which we should have no problems. 'Other countries are struggling with earthquakes, tornadoes and many other natural disasters, but God has exempted us. But with all the resources, what are the results? You and I are under siege from various directions. If it is Boko Haram today, it is Niger Delta militants tomorrow.'
Gloria Iwuamadi, Chairperson of the occasion, in her speech, encouraged women to pray for the nation as they are closer to God.
