Pastor Sola Odumosu, the Oyo State Overseer, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Bible Church, has urged delegates to the national conference to be sincere and debate issues that would move the country forward.
Odumosu gave the advise in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ogbomoso on Friday.
He said that the country’s dream of becoming a prosperous nation would be realised if the delegates would be sincere in their deliberations.
“The president is sincere to say we should come round and sit to discuss together,” he said, and called on the delegates to make use of the opportunity availed them to contribute meaningfully.
Odumosu said that the issue of corruption was beyond government and human power but spiritual, adding that people needed to be transformed and move closer to God.
Speaking on the 2015 general elections, the cleric urged the people to be committed to a violence-free poll and pray for its smooth conduct.
“The incumbent president since inception kept saying that his presidency does not worth the blood of anyone.
“So, people should see reason why they should not risk their lives unnecessarily for anybody because of election,” he said.
Odumosu said that the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, always offered special prayers for the people in government and the country at large.
He described the signing of the law prohibiting same sex in the country as one of the good things that had happened to the nation.
Odumosu said that it took courage and conviction on the part of the president and the National Assembly to take that decision.
“Nigeria is a sovereign nation, so nobody can intimidate us. I will just encourage the president and the National Assembly to stand by their decision.
“When you stand on the right side. God will continue to be on your side irrespective of where threats are coming from,” he said.
He enjoined parents and religious organisations to guide the youths to the right direction to reposition the country.
“So, that is why we help them. We give the youth specific attention and just about two weeks ago the church organised a special youth conference.
“We do that from time to time, that is for the last quarter, I believe God that in another quarter we are still going to do it. We are really interested in the youths,” he said.
Odumosu said that the church would hold a three-day crusade in Ibadan at Depeer Life Camp Ground, Km. 10, Deeper Life Bus-stop, beginning from April 11 to April 13 at 5p.m daily.
