The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr. Paul Enenche, has expressed anger over how political leaders take Christianity and the Church for granted in the country.
The fiery preacher, who spoke during the church’s Healing and Deliverance programme on Tuesday, said some politicians in Nigeria have pushed Christians to the wall for too long without any regard.
The popular cleric stated this amidst condemnation in many quarters against the announcement of Muslim-Muslim ticket by the All Progressives Congress, APC.
It was reports that the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu on Sunday announced his fellow Muslim, Kashim Shettima of Borno State as his running mate.
Speaking on Live Dunamis TV as monitored by our correspondent, the cleric lamented that the same people who have ruined the nation for years are still the ones presenting themselves for leadership.
He warned that anyone planning to rig or kill and force his way into power against the wishes of Nigerians will end up like King Nebuchadnezzar.
“Anybody who wants can spend one quadrillion naira to rig an election, but the will of God in Nigeria will be done in this season.
“Any amount of money they want to spend will not be enough to rig the election in the favour of evil.
“Is it not a shame, people say they don’t want you, yet you spend money to impose yourself on them?
“You should lead because people want you, but in this case, they say they don’t want you yet; you want to compromise the election to be in power by force. Is it not a shame that you are rejected and yet you are imposing yourself on them? If they don’t want you, clear out, don’t contest at all.
“Don’t rig to lead. Don’t kill to come into power, it is the people that should determine whether they want you or not.
“The same people who destroyed our land, who misruled the land are still presenting themselves for leadership including those who are architects of terrorism in Nigeria. It won’t happen under the watch of God. Something must give way, and it is evil that must give way.”
He strongly believes that God will never allow evil to continue to rule over the affairs of Nigeria.
His words, “If a nation like Nigeria is headed towards disaster, the God who answers by fire will bring instant alteration and you will see the answer.”
He also recalled how those in power who promised Nigerians ‘change’ ended up reducing the once celebrated ‘Giant of Africa’ to a midget.
He said, “You know, some seven to eight years ago, some people arrived and said they wanted to give us change. I am sure you have seen the CHANGE – Loss of lives, flow of blood. All manner of banditry, kidnapping, unbelievable insecurity, unbelievable level of poverty, unbelievable level scarcity and shortage, lives being cut short like water and all manner of terrible things that have continued to confront us as a nation till this present moment.
“Servicemen, soldiers die in the hands of criminals like water, that is the CHANGE that people talked about.
“Nobody should be afraid of the mess that is going on today in the political circle because we have a God in heaven that will answer us by fire.
“Anything they want, let them do now, but when Jehovah steps in, there will be a drastic CHANGE.
“Don’t be worried about who somebody picked as president or who they picked as vice president, it doesn’t matter, that is just the decision of man.
“There are people who don’t think the church matters. They have taken the Church and Christianity for granted for too long, but the God we serve is about to answer them by fire and He will show them who owns the land.
“Let the people come out and speak; stop playing coward. Silence most times means consent, you must not agree to be silent anymore. Evil shall not rule our land.
“The people of this country have been docile for too long, as if they have been charmed. You know that a goat does not bite, but when you push it to the wall, it will show you its teeth.
“In this season, any attempt to subvert the will of the people will be met with a shocking response. Any attempt to further impose evil on our land, they will be shocked at what they will see.
“Imagine where they have brought us: Nigeria is now number one country for religious intolerance globally, almost top in poverty, terrorism, and yet, they want everyone to keep quiet as if everything is normal, never!
“The Giant of Africa has now been almost turned into a despicable nation without respect. In some countries of the world today, when you arrive and mention that you are from Nigeria, you lose your respect immediately. First, they put you aside; they finish with others and check you like a criminal. It is ending now!
“It must be right with Nigeria because if it is right with us, it is right with Africa and with other nations of the world.”
