No fewer than 6,000 worshippers are at Galilee of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide to offer prayers for the President-Elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The worshippers are also praying for the hitch-free inauguration of the president-elect come May 29.
They added that the prayers of all led to the success of the 2023 general elections, reports The Nation.
Speaking with reporters at the international headquarters of the church along the Ilorin-Ogbomoso expressway, Supervising Prophet, International Council of Prophets of the church, Dr Zacheus Emmanuel said that the annual fiesta is principally to pray for Nigeria, families, the church and the world at large.
Emmanuel added that the prayers of the churches in Nigeria worked wonders in ensuring successful general elections that were devoid of blood-letting and violence.
According to him: “The prayers of the church worked well for the just concluded general elections in the country. The elections went well without unnecessary killing and maiming. Ours is for the country to enjoy perfect peace.
“I advise the about-to-be-sworn-in President Tinubu not to forget about God. It is only God that will guide him aright.
“His right heart with God will give him the wisdom on how to go about running the affairs of the country because the challenges facing the country are enormous. We believe that God will take control. We believe as he seeks the face of God for direction, God will unveil the solutions to those challenges.”
The supervision prophet lamented that the recently postponed census exercise reduced drastically the number of attendees at this year’s weeklong conference.
“We believe also that the Tinubu presidency will see to the economic challenges and things will work out better.”
Lending his voice, the council’s General Secretary Prophet Abiodun Ogunsakin said that “the purpose of the conference is to pray for Nigeria. What Nigeria needs now is spiritual intervention. We should are close-rank and pray for Nigeria. We should stop apportioning blame and finger-pointing.”
