As President Muhammadu Buhari sets to send names of his ministers to the National Assembly for confirmation, the president, Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, worldwide, Pastor Gabriel Lagunju has advised him to avoid tribalism in choosing members of his cabinet, for him to be able to lead the country to the Promised Land.
Pastor Lagunju stated that tribalism had been the problem rocking the unity of the country since independence, and thereby warned President Buhari against it.
The CAC president made the declaration while delivering the sermon to mark the 2015 Annual General Convention of the church with the theme, ‘The End Time Events’ held at the CAC, Ile Anu, Alasepe, Ikire.
Pastor Lagunju stated that the country would continue to find it difficult to take its rightful place in the comity of nations unless the fight against nepotism was taken seriously such that Nigerians, irrespective of their tribe, see themselves as one.
According to him, Nigeria is blessed by God with all that it needs to make it great, noting that the leadership of the country should make it a point of duty to work so that all issues of tribalism became things of the past.
Pastor Lagunju, whose sermon was delivered by Pastor Henry Ojo, also called on the president to give more room for church in the country to grow, stating that the church is the gate that could put a stop to the works of the devil in the country.
He said, “As the country will soon celebrate her 55th independence anniversary, I am appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to avoid the pitfalls of the past administrations by running away from tribalism and nepotism, so that the country can move forward. I believe that it is a known that fact tribalism has drawn the clock of the country back in many areas.
“It is also important for the president to give the necessary support to the church in Nigeria to rise up to play the role expected of them in standing in the gap for the country, more so when it is understand that without the church, Satan will be happy to have a field day and bring problems to the country.”
He then assured that the CAC as a church would continue to pray for the success of the present administration in the country, maintaining that the church was happy with the steps so far taken by the administration, most especially in the fight against corruption which he said had eaten deep into the fabrics of the nation.
The CAC president, however, urged the president to make the fight against corruption a total one and bring those twho have soiled their hands to justice, irrespective of their tribes or political affiliations.
