President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised not to rely on his political appointees if he must succeed in his second term.
Prophet Sam Olu Alo, founder of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Grace of God Prayer Mountain, Adamimogo Outreach, who gave the warning, said the president would be committing great error if he would put his trust on his aides.
Instead, the cleric admonished Buhari to seek the face of God to be able to deliver on his electioneering promises to Nigerians.
Prophet Olu-Alo poke in Lagos during the dedication of a new church auditorium tagged ‘Power House ‘ built by his Ministry at Baoku Close, Ogombo, Ajah-Abraham Adesanya Ajah.
The Ekiti born cleric urged Buhari to put all his hope in God, who has the capacity to turn around the fortunes of any nation.
Alo said Nigerian leaders must learn how to dedicate their leadership to God like the Biblical David, saying this remained the best way for their dreams and policies to be realised.
“President Buhari should not believe in his own capacity and that of his appointees to be able to deliver for Nigerians.
“He must consider God, who made him President after fourth attempt and at old age as very important for him to be successful,” he advised.
Alo said the church was established to propagate the gospel and increase the frontiers of spiritual rebirth for Nigerians.
He added that the country needs God’s intervention at this period to be able to overcome its multi -faceted challenges.
Those who ministered at the event included Pastor Gideon Obiwale, Chairman, CAC, Osogbo DCC; Pastor Olu Eyebiokin, Superintendent, Agege DCC; Pastor J. Adelakun (aka Ayewa), Evang. Esther Igbekele and Evang. Bisi Alawiye-Aluko, a gospel musician.
Alo said his ministry was not anchored on money and wealth acquisition, but to spread the gospel for people to be saved from their ruinous path.
“The building of this church was conceptualised to move the work of God higher, particularly to propagate the ideal of CAC founder, Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola.
“Apart from spiritual healing and rebirth which many had benefited, our ministry also believes in humanitarian services.
“Thousands of poor people, poor students and others have been empowered through scholarship and job creation and that is what the work of God is all about, to make people happy by loosening them from afflictions.”
