2022: DON’T LISTEN TO PROPHETS OF DOOM, PROPHET ABIARA TELLS NIGERIANS 

Lagos Has a Bright Future, Says Sanwo-Olu 

Governor, Deputy, Clerics Lead New Year Prayers 

The General Evangelist, Worldwide of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Prophet Samuel Kayode Abiara on Saturday told Nigerians, especially the people of Lagos State to shun those he described as prophets of doom.

 

 

 

He gave the charge during the New Year Service held simultaneously by Christian and Muslim faithful in Lagos House, Marina at both the Chapel of Christ the King for Christian faithful and the State House Mosque.

Prophet Abiara, at the Christian worship prayed for Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his family, members of the State Executive Council and Lagos State. He urged people not to listen to prophets of doom against Nigeria and her leaders at the national and state levels.

“Don’t listen to prophets of doom against Nigeria, our nation and the leaders. Don’t listen to prophets of doom against Lagos State. The future of Nigeria and Lagos State is bright,” Prophet Abiara declared.

The renowned cleric who commended Governor Sanwo-Olu on his compassion for the downtrodden and the masses implored public office holders to emulate the governor and be passionate about the people they are serving.

In his sermon, former Vice-Chancellor of the Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo and Bishop of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Revd (Prof.) Dapo Asaju, said Governor Sanwo-Olu has shown good leadership in Lagos State.

Bishop Asaju, who titled his message, “God, the rulers and the people,” declared that Governor Sanwo-Olu has done very well and prayed that the governor will finish well and be celebrated like the late first civilian Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande.

“The Bible tells us that when the righteous are in power, the people will rejoice. We are rejoicing in Lagos State because we have a Godly governor. If I can assume the role of the good people of Lagos State, I will like to pass a message across to Governor Sanwo-Olu that we love you, we appreciate you and we are proud to be your subjects. We thank God for what He is doing in your life.

“Mr. Governor, you have been running this administration very well. You have done very well but your tenure is going gradually and as another election is coming, there shall be a new song. You will finish well and you will be celebrated. Like Lateef Jakande was celebrated, you will be celebrated and the glory of the future would be greater.

“People will decide the kind of Governor that they have. So people of Lagos should better open their eyes and pray for another governor like this and I pray that God Almighty will give you the grace even to continue in the name of Jesus Christ. If it is a political statement, I say it with every sense of confidence that God Almighty will give you the possibility to perfect what you have started in Jesus name”, the Bishop prayed.

Speaking during the Christian service, Governor Sanwo-Olu in his New Year message said Lagos has a brighter future and urged his cabinet members to work toward achieving the Greater Lagos agenda.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who read the second lesson from Philippians 3:12-16, charged members of the State Executive Council to lead with the fear of God, make good things out of their life and ensure that people remember them for good things.

He said: “Let us open a new chapter and know that the new chapter is about togetherness. They have said to us that we all have a brighter future.

“Our State has a bright future. But it is really for us to open our eyes very well and see the bright future. We should connect to God Almighty and ask for His direction in everything we do.”

Speaking at the Muslim Service, Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, while assuring Nigerians of a better life in 2022, asked all religious leaders to continue emphasising religious tolerance.

He said only unity, peace and love can engender prosperity in any society.

“It is practically difficult, if not impossible to achieve prosperity where insecurity permeates in any society. I, therefore, urge every Nigerian to support the government in her quest for socio-economic and political development.

“The THEMES agenda of Sanwo-Olu administration encompasses every aspect of the life of every Lagos resident. Therefore, we solicit the support of everyone so that our noble objectives may be a reality,” he said.

During the Christian and Muslim New Year prayers were attended by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat; First Lady, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu; Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola; Lagos State Command Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu; commissioners and special advisers to the governor, among others, clerics prayed for Nigeria, Lagos State and public office holders.

Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has reflected on his ordeal after he lost one of his sons, Dare Adeboye.

 

Dare Adeboye, the son of the clergy, was also a pastor of RCCG in Eket, Akwa Ibom State. He died in his sleep in May 2021.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daddy GO, as he is fondly called, spoke about his ordeal on Tuesday night, during the 70th Annual Convention of the church, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The programme with the theme, ‘Perfect Jubilee’, began on Monday, August 8th and would last through Sunday, August 14th, 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The preacher spoke on the second day of the programme on the topic, ‘Born Free’, and said God carries His children who make themselves carryable.

Adeboye said God carried him when he was in the saddest period of his life in May 2021, after the death of his 42-year-old son, Dare.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Some of you have heard this before: when I was in the saddest period of my life, with so many questions and I know that even in my deep sorrow some people were still laughing at me, I got a text from one of my daughters.

“All she said was: ‘Daddy, let God carry you.’ And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith”, he stated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dare, the third child of 80-year-old Adeboye, died on May 4, 2021, in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family. He was married to Temiloluwa and they had three daughters before his unfortunate demise. He was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death.
