State Of Nation: Jesus Would Not Be Silent If He Were In Nigeria – Obasanjo

Published

on

Former Head of State and Nigeria’s first civilian president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has come out once again to speak on the situation of the country, urging Christians to stick together or risk being devoured.

Obasanjo, 82, while at the 64th annual national convention of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria held at the church’s campground in Ajebo, Ogun State, urged all Christians to speak truth to power just like Jesus would have done if he were in the country today.

The church event also featured the appointment of the new General Overseer of the church, Rev. Samuel Aboyeji, who took over from the immediate-past General Overseer, Rev. Felix Meduoye, and thousands of people gathered at the church to see the former military dictator speak about Christ.

He said to the congreagation; “As Christians, we have to be like Christ as we are transformed into the likeness of Christ or little like Christ.

“So, in all positions, situations, and events, we should be guided. “If Christ was in this position, in this situation or in this event, what would he have done? “We have a lot to do in the situation we found ourselves in this country today. And make no mistake about it, if we don’t get together and stay together, we would be devoured and that we should not take lightly.

For me, if Christ was in Nigeria today, He would not keep quiet. He would say it as it should be said. He would speak truth to power. He would have no fear and He would have no intimidation.

“Children of God, you have a responsibility to do and say what Jesus Christ would have done and said if He was in Nigeria today.”

fire

The Acting Permanent Secretary, Benue State Ministry of Energy, Science and Technology, Mr Seker Akaa, his pregnant wife and two kids were on Monday burnt to death in a fire incident in Makurdi.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Benue, DSP Sewuese Anene who confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said the fire started at about 2.40 a.m at Kwarafa Quaters, Makurdi.

NAN reports that three other flats were also burnt including the resident of Evangelist Daniel Unongo, Chaplain of Benue Government House, who is also Senior Special Assistant to Gov. Samuel Ortom on Religion. Anene said Mr Akaa, his pregnant wife, Linda, two children; Sender and Tertsegh Akaa, all occupants of Flat 1 were burnt to death during the fire disaster. She said that the dead bodies had been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Makurdi mortuary.

The police spokesperson stated that the cause of the fire was yet to be known, adding that “investigation into the matter had already commenced”. Reacting to the development, the Deputy Governor, Mr Benson Abounu, who visited the scene, expressed shock at the level of destruction and loss of human lives. According to Abounu, it is black day for Benue and the state has lost a prized asset in Mr. Akaa. He prayed God to give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“We cannot undo what has happened. At the moment, the government will take responsibility for their burial and assist the other families to relocate. We warn against any looting of property.” Abounu said The Commissioner, Energy, Science Technology, Dr Godwin Oyiwona also confirmed the incident and expressed the ministry’s deepest condolences.

NAN also gathered from an eyewitness who refused to be named, that the fire started in flat 1 the residence of the late acting permanent secretary. He said the perm sec and his family would have been saved but because of the incessant cases of armed robbery recorded within the neighbourhood the neighbours thought it was armed robbers that were operating again.

Actually the fire started at Mr Akaa’s house, we would have saved him and his family but we thought it was armed robbers that were again attacking us.

You see armed robbers attack us here regularly. So, we have adopted ways of self-defense by providing burglary protection on the doors to prevent them from getting easy access inside, that too caused delay of getting to them on time,” it said. The witness said firefighters from Benue Government House, Makurdi, came to the scene on time but they had little to do to save them. Eyewitnesses said it might have been caused by an electrical fault as it razed down the entire house and extended to three other houses.
