The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja the second, has called for national peace, unity and tranquility, saying they are pillars with the capacity to strengthen Nigeria’s bid for socio-economic development.
Oba Ogunwusi stated this in Ile-Ife today while speaking at the Grand-finale of a New Year Prayer Programme organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria , Ife Chapter.
He acknowledged the goodness of God for the gift of life and the opportunity to witness the day urging Christians to let their thanksgiving supersede their requests from God.
The royal father called on Christians to always pray for peaceful coexistence before, during and after the forthcoming elections across the state and the entire country advising them to support the present administration in its efforts to make the country a better place for businesses to thrive and for peace to reign.
Preaching earlier on the topic: `God of host is a consuming fire’, Pastor Samuel Akinsulure, the Christ Apostolic Church, Ife District Coordinating Council told the congregation that God will fight the battles of their lives, town, state and country as a whole this year.
He, however, urged Christians to abstain from all forms of immoral activity and rededicate themselves to service to God urging them to prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ, adding that only those, who believed in His resurrection, would be saved.
