“We are passing through a season of decay into another season of blessing,” he added.
“I wish to assure Nigerians that in the midst of what is happening we shall succeed because in First Samuel, Chapter 18, verse five, when God made David to be successful he was promoted.
“A time of promotion is coming for this land (nation) irrespective of what we are passing through.
“I pray for Nigeria’s success, we will succeed; I am singing a song of success. After all these we will succeed.
“In First Samuel, Chapter 14, in verse 14, in everything that David did, he was successful.
“So in everything He will do Nigerians are going to succeed,” Mbaka said.
Speaking on the purpose of his visit, Mbaka said it was to commit the country and its entire leadership into the hands of the Almighty God as well as pray for peace in the land and establish a permanent blessing on the citizens as they enter into the Yuletide.
