Samson Ayokunle, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says that Donald Trump was positioned by God to curb the high rate of immorality in America.
Mr. Ayokunle said this at the 29th General Assembly of the Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN) held on Thursday in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.
It was a 3-day programme themed- God of Life: Lead Nigeria to Justice, Peace and Dignity.
Ayokunle is certain that the new US administration was backed by God in order to tame the immorality in the United States.
The man of God went down in history, recalling that the United States had been found on strong Christian tenets and by Christians. It was called God’s Own Country for that reason. But sadly the nation is a typical opposite of what it used to be. He described the America of today as Sodom and Gomorrah.
He warned that secularism plays a role in disregarding the role of God in the leadership of a nation.
Ayokunle did not ignore the fact that his home country equally needed to sit up against corruption and insecurity.
“By the result that corruption has given us presently, I think it is high time we all rose and fight the demon; without fighting it, it will cripple us.”
“If we are not very careful we will end up becoming a crippled giant because we have allowed corruption to enter into our system”
He urged Nigerians to be security conscious with regards to the fight against Boko Haram. He noted that the fight against the insurgent group has been largely successful but with the death of Nigeria top military personality Lt. Col. Abu Ali and some soldiers last week in Maiduguri, he says there is still work to be done.
“It is not over until it is over; the fact that a top army officer was killed is a signal to the fact that we have not defeated them.”
“It was also an attestation to the commitment of the Federal Government to fight this demon called Boko Haram.”“So, everybody should be more committed so that the souls of those who died might not be in vain.”– Ayokunle.
He also solicited for oneness among all Christians in Nigeria.
