The President of North-East Baptist Conference, Rev. Musa Likita, has called on Christians across the country to rise up and seek God’s intervention to the security challenges confronting the country, saying enough of kidnapping, banditry, bloodbath and others in the land.
He stated this while speaking at the ordination of new pastors into full gospel ministry in the Church held at First Baptist Church, Bauchi.
Likita admonished Pastors to always preach peace and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians irrespective of ethno-religious differences.
He said what the country needs now is truth, honest leadership and obedient followership which he opined are lacking presently.
According to him, “This is the time for the Church, the body of Christ, to come together, raise voices of intercession to God for divine intervention in the affairs of Nigeria. Enough of bloodbath, bloodletting, kidnappings and banditry.”
He opined that peace can only return to the country when Nigerians resolved to see themselves as one indivisible people united by culture and traditions and brought together by divine providence.
Speaking on the insecurity pervading the country, Likita declared that “the solution is with God, we need to return to Him, ask for forgiveness for our sins and repent. God is interested in the Nigerian project that is the reason we are still together as a country.”
He charged security agencies in the country to rise up to the challenge by going after the bandits and insurgents who, he said, “are not ghosts but human beings living among decent, innocent people and can be traced.”
