Nigeria Will Still Exist For Another 100 Years, Says Bishop Adeoye
A Pentecostal cleric, Bishop Seun Adeoye has stated that the present agitations for self-rule by some ethnic groups in Nigeria won't succeed now as Nigeria will still be in existence for another 100 years.
The General Overseer of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry (SGTM), Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State said this at the end of the church's four days celebration of the Passover festival held between Friday, April 2nd and Monday, April 5th, 2021 with the theme, "When I see the blood".
Bishop Adeoye who is also the Lead Bishop, Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC), Nigeria and the spokesman of World Bishops' Council (WBC), Africa said his assertion was based on the message delivered to him by God.
"I heard God's voice very clearly. He said although Nigeria is sick but the country won't die now. God told me Nigeria will still be in existence till the next 100 years.
"Did I as a human being want to hear such message going by the enormous and unresolved issues across Nigeria and the inability of our leaders to find solutions to the myriads of the nation's problem? I will say no! But when God has spoken, what can mere men do?
"I have no issue with the agitators of self rule. I only delivered God's verdict on the future of Nigeria. They are free to believe me or disbelieve me. That won't change what God intends for Nigeria"
According to the clergyman, "God is never a liar. I heard Him said the next four generations will see Nigeria and then there will be the birth of a new nation".
On the current trends in Nigeria, the cleric said, "We will overcome as a nation if we allow love and justice to reign.
"Above all, we need a very strong and purposeful leadership that will turn our desert to watered ground. And God has prepared the Moses that will take Nigerians out of slavery and sufferings in a very short distance time and maybe 2023"
"God said to me, 'Let the wise man come from the East. The man who can see the star, recognize it and find the place where the glory of the land resides'", the clerical work added.
He called on those in position of authority in Nigeria to always seek God for guidance in the affairs of the nation, while noting that "those who trust in their strengths and wisdom without God will fail".
