Akure—THE Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd) yesterday described  as unfortunate the myriad of crisis bedevilling the country.

He then called for fervent prayers by Nigerians ”for us to overcome the problems of unity of the country.”

He spoke with newsmen in Akure  after leading members of the Bible Society of Nigeria, BSN, on a courtesy call on Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

According to him; ”It is unfortunate that the country is facing series of crisis in some parts in the recent times.

Gowon said: “It is unfortunate that some of these things are happening. After the civil war, I have hoped and prayed Nigeria will never again go through the experience we had gone through and you can know how disappointed one is that all these sorts of things are happening now.

“In the Northeast, Southern Kaduna and the militants in the South. I will help the government in putting some of these things into prayer

Gowon, who is a patron of the Bible Society of Nigeria expressed optimism that situation of the country would soon change for better.

“I read in one of the newspapers that the name of Nigeria is no more on the list of countries in economic recession, that shows that things are getting better, so we should not stop praying for the country,” he said.

Also speaking during the visit, the National President of the BSN, Dr. Aron Nuhu who solicited the support of the Ondo State government for the association said that the association had translated the bible to 24 Nigeria languages.

Responding, governor Akeredolu commended the former Head of State for ensuring oneness of the country since the time he was the head of the affairs of the country.

Akeredolu prayed that the efforts of the former Head of state  to ensure the unity of the country would not be in vain.

He said that it is unity that there can be progress.

People like Gowon should be bold enough to speak the truth instead of always calling for prayers.

I don't know what people like this take God for.

Of course Nigeria, like all other countries on earth, needs prayers; but in cases where we refuse to do the right thing -the type of thing that God identifies with, it amounts to an insult on God to keep calling on him to bless you in your leprous state.

Naaman the leper (the Syrian general in the Bible who needed Elisha to cure him or leprosy), had to heed Elisha's specific instructions to go and dip into the "lowly and humble" River Jordan SEVEN TIMES before his leprosy would be healed.
Naaman did not try to change the facts of his leprosy, neither did he try to bypass Elisha's instructions.
He did EXACTLY as Elisha instructed him, before his leprosy disappeared from him and his lineage.

God is not mocked.

Nigerians -all of us - know EXACTLY what needs to happen in Nigeria before God can visit us with blessings of peace and progress.
ALL Nigerians reached a deal in the 2014 National Conference, and it is a well documented conference.
Its findings and recommendations should simply be implemented first before we start praying.

And when we must have done this, God will answer us even before we ask, and while we are yet praying, he will hear!
That is how God works!

Is good to pray but we must follow through our prayers with action.
