The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has called for the immediate and drastic overhaul of the nation’s security system.
Adeboye, who led his flock on a protest march against insecurity in the country on Sunday said the prayer walk in which members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) participated in other parts of the country, would usher in a new dawn in Nigeria.
In a post on his Facebook page, with pictures from the prayer march, Adeboye said the march was also to declare “that Jesus who is the Prince of Peace is our Lord and King.”
The post read: “Today, Sunday, 2nd of February, 2020, members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God led by me embarked on a prayer walk that will usher in a new dawn in our dear country, Nigeria.
“The prayer walk was aimed at offering prayers and supplications unto God to save Nigeria from being consumed by insurgents, terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers, militants and ritualists in all our states.
“Furthermore, we declared that Jesus who is the Prince of Peace is our Lord and King. We carried and displayed several placards saying ‘No’ to further killings and demanding that the Federal and State governments should rise up to their civic responsibility of securing the lives and properties of her citizens.
“In addition to this, we suggest that the security infrastructure in our nation be overhauled and improved drastically.
“It is our prayer and burning desire that peace will reign in our land. It is our heart-cry that our current security challenges will be a thing of the past.”
He added two hash tags to his post – #NoToKillings and #CANAgainstBloodshed”
