Presiding Bishop of Calvary Kingdom Church, Archbishop Joseph Ojo, has called on the new service chiefs appointed by the President to douse the tension across the country and give Nigerians hope of better security.
Ojo said this in an interview recently at the end of a Seven Days Prayer and Fasting organized by the church at the headquarters in Lagos, said that tension in the land is too high, its becoming volatile – they should douse the tension and give hope to the people that they can travel from here to Kaduna without being molested on the road. They should do that, and if they are able to do that, it will be kudos to the president.
He said l think they need to build on what they met on ground. There should be a synergy between the three arms, even four now including the police. There should be a synergy among them to douse the tension that is in the country.
Although, he lamented the delay in the appointment of the New service chiefs, said the Presidency should give them enabling ground to do their work professionally and if they are getting out of their professional mandate , they should be called to order .
“l think that was what was wrong with the other service chiefs: he left them there for too long, even after the complains. He should have changed them mid way and anybody coming in would have had some fear; if I didn’t perform I will be pushed out.
He encouraged Christian to keep their hope alive because in 2021; we are trusting God that those who seek him, God will give them satisfaction and the fullness of joy. We are trusting God that there will be peace in this country.
He said “ Irrespective of what we are seeing now, the hand of God, which is the governor of the universe according to God’s words in Daniels in still in charge”
He stated that men may have their plan but God’s plan supercedes all. So, am believing God and some ministers of like minds that irrespective of all the bouhala we are having; definately there will still be peace. God will see us through.
