Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed optimism that Nigeria will soon be better regardless of the country’s present situation and condition.
Obasanjo said for Nigeria to be better, it would require the assistance of men with integrity to pilot the affairs of the country.
Obasanjo, who said this at a Global Crusade organised by the Deeper Life Bible Church in Abeokuta, noted that Nigeria needs people like Noah and Job whom God described as men of great integrity.
The former president said that considering the situation of things, Nigeria and the entire world required God’s visitation, advising all children of God to seek His face for visitation.
“There is no time in the world that things have been bad that it is not the children of God that stood out.
“Nigeria needs such men of integrity at this present moment.
“I believe that because of these kinds of men and women of such virtue in Nigeria, God will open his eyes and have mercy on this country.
“Unless those who don’t want to be honest with themselves will say that all is well, but if we trust in God and believe in Jesus Christ all will be well.
“Children of God, whatever may be our situation, whatever may be the condition, let us have faith in God, and all will be well,” Obasanjo said.
The General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, who had earlier paid a visit to the former president, prayed to God to grant him many more years to contribute to the progress of the country.
Kumuyi stated that his visit was to show respect to Obasanjo and to also invite him to the crusade where he could share his words of wisdom with the people and the global community.
The general overseer, in his message, said that God had prepared complete dominion over the circumstances of the world through Jesus Christ.
Kumuyi said that the only way to have complete dominion over problem and other circumstances was to live in holiness and consecration to God through Jesus Christ.
