Nigeria: Cleric Urges Leaders to Eschew Evil

A cleric, Prophet Oliver Mbonu has called on the leadership of the country to shun wickedness and embrace God by providing accountable and transparent leadership to the people.

Mbonu who is the General Overseer of the Christ Universal Family Chapel (CFC) Bible Ministry a.k.a Universal Chapel, while addressing journalists during the annual thanksgiving of his church based in Suleja, Niger State, noted that the Holy Bible in Psalms 11 said if the foundation is destroyed what can the righteous do.

He said: "There is only one being that can correct these entire problems that are bedevilling the country and that person is God who is the creator of the universe. Since he is the creator, it is only him that can intervene and solve the problem we are going through."

According to him, the occasion of the thanksgiving of the church is the celebration of the winning of souls to the kingdom of God. "This is the gospel we are preaching day-by-day. We are evangelising and hitting the world with the word of God," he said.

Mbonu advised Christians to embrace Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour to better their lives spiritually.
