The General Overseer of House of Redemption International, Archbishop Kalu O. Kalu has beckoned on Nigerians to pray tirelessly for the nation and its leaders, assuring that an end will soon come to all forms of anti-social upheavals in the country.
Acording to The Vanguard, Archbishop Kalu specifically predicted an end to Boko Haram menace in the North Eastern part of the country, arguing that it was politically motivated and since that purpose has been achieved there will naturally be a truce.
In an interview at the end of his church’s 4-day convention in Surulere, Lagos the cleric who founded HORI in 2009 after several years with St. Joseph’s Chosen Church of God, said Nigeria is passing through a phase, at the end of which the citizens will rejoice.
The 4-day convention was themed: ‘My day, my time, my season of turnaround.’
Kalu said that the current insurgency in parts of the North was organised for a political purpose, but now that that purpose has been achieved the backers of the dream will back off soon.
He said: “If the insurgency ended immediately after the elections everybody in the country would have been left with no alternative than to believe the rumours that have been flying around,” adding “but for its end, it will end very soon.”
The cleric who hails from Abia state, believes that Nigeria, as a nation, had been established by divine arrangement, stressing that every attempt by individuals or groups to tear or ‘balkanise’ the nation will come to void.
Kalu explained that: “This nation’s unity is by divine arrangement. Every nation goes through a phase and Nigeria is not an exception. Britain, America and all the developed nations of the world had gone their different phases and today, America is the most powerful nation of the world. Life is in phases and Nigeria is going through its own.”
With that pointed out, he enjoined every Nigerian to hold on to God, arguing that a nation that holds on to God will naturally be lifted up, decrying that despite the upsurge of worship places in the country, there is no righteousness in our governance.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why Nigeria now has increased capacity to fight Boko Haram insurgency.
The president delivered his point on Friday, July 31, during a meeting with Mohammed Ibn Chambas, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Office for West Africa.
He (Buhari), expressed confidence that with the formation and full activation of the Multi National Joint Task Force (MNJTF), terrorism would soon become the thing of the past.
