Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Nigerians to move closer to God in this troubling period for the country.
He gave this advice on Saturday in Abeokuta, Ogun state, during the 16th edition of Prayer Breakfast held virtually and organised in his honour by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ogun state chapter.
Obasanjo stated that the challenges confronting Nigeria were beyond what the citizens and leaders could handle, but they were not too difficult for God.
He emphasised the importance of prayers in problem-solving, adding that Nigeria needs divine healing.
“The situation in our country calls for all of us to cry out loudly to God in prayers and supplications,” he said.
“We seem to have been overwhelmed and unsure of how to handle the crisis in our land. But nothing is too difficult for God to do. That is why we are here. We have some challenges. These are beyond what we can handle. We have to cry out to God to help us.
“Our land needs to be healed. We have been overwhelmed, those in government, executive, legislators, public servant, civil servant, private sector, we are overwhelmed.
“God cannot be overwhelmed. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, I believe God will heal our land that is the reason we are here.”
