Lent, Ramadan‘ll assist Nigeria

Jimoh Ahmed, Owo

Coincidence of the Ramadan and the Lenten period is an attestation to the fact that prayers will do a lot in transforming the country.

These were the words of a cleric who is also the Vicar of Baptist Church, Okeagbe Akoko,  Rev David Balogun, while speaking at a programme marking this year’s Lenten period in Okeagbe.

Rev Balogun said with fervent prayers, honesty and sincerity of purpose on the part of people in government, prosperity peaceful and progressive Nigeria is possible.

The christian cleric therefore urged Nigerians not to lose faith in prayers as solutions to all challenges facing them and the country. 

Rev Balogun described Almighty God as a father who is ready to forgive sinners and wrongdoers whenever they repent.

On security challenges in the country, the Vicar called on government to do the needful and religious leaders to be fervent in their prayers for the security issue to abate.

He condemned the abduction of school children recently in Kaduna State, saying children’s rights to education as proclaimed by UNESCO must not be allowed to be tampered with in the country.

Balogun urged all the tiers of government, traditional and religious leaders to do more in the area of security challenge, which, according to him, is one of the factors leading to food hike and scarcity in the country.
