Use opportunity of 2023 elections to transform Nigeria, Venerable Fakiyesi tells politicians

The Venerable Charles Fakiyesi, Archdeacon Idi-Oro, Diocese of Lagos Mainland has called on Nigerians of all shades and colour to use the opportunity of 2023 elections to transform the country.

 

This, he said, will serve as a panacea for the youths running away to Canada and other western part of the globe, and, in fact, many returning to the country in no distant future.

 

The Venerable who was preaching on the occasion of the 2022 harvest of the Chapel of Christ The Light tagged ‘Harvest of Blessings of Going Forward’ said politicians should use the opportunity of 2023 elections to transform the country said that those who are desirous of traveling out are usually trapped by the spirits of stagnancy or frustration.

 

The harvest and thanksgiving service was graced by the Lagos State Governor Babatunde Sanwo-Olu and his wife who were represented by his Special Adviser on Religion, Adebukola Adeleke and his wife. Others in attendance were Venerable of Harvest Chapel of Christ, Ezekiel Oluwadare, Revd (Dr) Dele Ajayi, Chairman of Harvest Planning Committee, Chief Henry Olofingorite, and Rev. Deji Koko among others.

 

According to the preacher, it was the refusal of David, Joseph, Abraham and Moses in the Bible to bow to frustration that made them succeed as men of God, saying that every true man or woman of God should be asking himself what is the next step.

 

Gov. Sanwo-Olu in his speech at the occasion urged Lagosians to pray for the peace co-existence of Lagos State and Nigeria as we go into the forthcoming elections, even as he enjoined them to ensure that they exercise their civic responsibility during the polls.

 

He posited that God is great and that with Him being on our side, there is no way that the state and country will not succeed going forward, noting that we should never under-estimate the power of God.

 

Abike Sanwo-Olu on her part stressed the need for Nigerians to have faith in God despite the challenges we face currently in the country.

 

Fakiyesi going further told his listeners that to be able to go forward in life that should be on they should be on the righteous side of God, also the person should be deligent and prayerful.
