Do not criticise the President unnecessarily says Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, on Sunday.
Okowa directed this to Nigerians, especially political leaders. He urged them to stop undue blames and criticisms of President Muhammadu Buhari for Nigeria’s woes.
He gave this advice in Benin at the end of a seven-day convention of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly International (RACAI).
He pleads that Nigerians should support the President, at all times.
The Governor stated this while speaking on the Theme: “Too Faithful to Fail”.
Christians should pray for Nigeria to overcome the numerous challenges it have, he said. He also told the audience that Delta State also has its own challenges, as he took over leadership of the state, but he overcame it with prayers.
“I refused to be disturbed or regret being in power at that difficult moment. Apart from plans made to tackle the problems, we embarked on prayer, especially the one we organise every May 29, since 2015.
“This is a way to say thank you God, we still believe and trust in you. The church must continue to pray for this country.
“If you do not pray and you continue to complain about the nation’s woes, you are not a Christian.
“When our nation is sick, we as a people are also sick. We should take the burden of the country as that of ourselves,” he urged.
While speaking at the event, the Pastor of RACAI, Mr Charles Osazuwa, said that Nigerians should take responsibility of providing solutions to the nation’s numerous challenges.
Continuing, “In the course of this conference, knowledge has been imparted on the people; when the people apply it, it will make a significant difference in their lives and that of the country.
“ It is time for individuals to rise up to take responsibilities rather than complain,” the Pastor concluded.
