President Muhammadu Buhari was anointed to lead the country for eight years, and as such, should be given the necessary support for him to fulfill the prophecy, the National Inter-Faith and Religious Organisations for Peace (NIFROP) has said.
The inter-faith group, therefore, called on Nigerians not to disrupt the flow of God’s blessing to the land, rather, they should support the re-election bid of President Buhari, so that he could continue running the errand God has sent him.
The national president of NIFROP, Bishop Sundy Garuba, gave this charge yesterday in Abuja at the grand rally of 1,000 clerics for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari
According to the cleric, the Buhari-led government has been winning the war against insurgency and should be allowed to continue the task for another four years.
He said, “Before the National Inter-Faith and Religious Organisations for Peace [NIFROP] announced today’s rally sometimes last week, we had been led by the spirit to hold 40 days fasting and prayer.
“In the course of this exercise, undertaken on behalf of the nation, it was revealed to us that President Buhari is God’s anointed to lead Nigeria to greater heights. The message we got included the one from the Book of Isaiah 32 ‘Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice. 2 Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed, and the ears of those who hear will give attention. 4 The heart of the hasty will understand and know, and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak distinctly. 5 The fool will no more be called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be honourable’.
“The Lord revealed to us concerning Nigeria that ‘(Philippians 1:6) being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.’
“It is in similar fashion that we came to the realisation that President Buhari, who began many good things in the interest of Nigeria, will continue to improve on the good things he is doing for the country during his second term in office as ordained by God. We consequently relayed the message to Nigerians not to disrupt the flow of God’s blessing to the land, which requires that the person already anointed to lead the country, in the person of President Buhari, is allowed to continue running the errand God has sent him.
“At the end of the 40 days of fasting and prayers, we relayed this message to Nigerians so that they will be guided when the time comes to cast their votes. But we have seen that the devil is hard at work trying to get Nigerians to violate the instruction given unto them as to who to elect. It is for this reason that we have decided to rally for President Buhari”.
