Nigeria: Insecurity - It's Time for God's Intervention - Mark

Senate President David Mark says it is time to seek God's intervention in the security challenge facing the country.

Mark, who spoke yesterday for the umpteenth time during a funeral service for Late Lady Hannah Ugboyibo Chukwudozie held at the St. Peters Anglican Church, Ubahu, Okija, Anambra State, counselled religious leaders and followers across the nation not to see the present security challenge as a religious conflict, but to resort to God to intervene because "no one can fight for God."

A statement by Mark's media aide, Paul Mumeh, quoted him as saying that the nation's trying times will be over come only when Nigerians trust God for supernatural intervention on the matter.

"As a nation, we must learn from our past civil strife which left Nigeria backward economically and politically. The citizens need to live in harmony with one another. We must learn from our past mistakes, everything that happens, God has a purpose for it. It could be a test of our faith. This trying times, I am sure, will soon be over. No matter our challenges, we must leave the fight for God and believe in ourselves as a nation," Mark said.
