Popular United States of America based Preacher, Apostle Courage Igene, the leader of ‘All Nations Church Int’l’ has express concern over the recurring killings, social-economic problems and other challenges going on the country.
In an interview with LEADERSHIP, the preacher explained that Nigeria’s 60th Independence anniversary should serve as a unifier, forging oneness and a continued hope for tomorrow’s generation.
He said so much still need to be done, especially in the area of security in Nigeria which has been a recurring decimal and wants collaborative efforts in ending insecurity in Nigeria.
“Many have lost trace of family members and their ancestral homes and have become refugees in their own country. I pray God will raise men that will transform the nation inside out. Too much wasted resources everywhere. But I pray for a change which will soon occur.
“Nigeria should build a coalition with neighbouring Nations and partner with the International community. Major terrorist organizations have been dissipated around the world. Boko Haram is too small not to be stamped out with strong International force.
“If the Church of God is united, we can withstand anything. No matter what anybody is saying, call it herdsmen, call it insurgency or Boko Haram, if the church can sit in her office as a church, the church will be able to decide what happens in the nation. Many countries don’t pray like Nigeria yet, they have no terrorist organisation because they have a strong security operation. Everything is not prayer. If the some government officials weren’t corrupt and the Military ill-equipped, by now Boko Haram would have been a forgotten issue,” he stated.
Apostle Courage Igene also said Nigeria@60 is worth celebrating because the country may not be where the citizens want it to be now but not where it used to be.
