President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday played host to the leadership of Cherubim and Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria at State House, Abuja, and commended the group for upholding the administration and the government in prayers, particularly as the general elections approach.
He noted that, “I am very grateful for this visit. God will answer our prayers. With your prayers, we will go into the field, and be victorious.
“Your good intentions and prayers are appreciated. This is what is expected of institutions working for God.” he said
Buhari, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said he was glad that the church lauded the good work being done by government in the areas of infrastructure, anti-corruption, and security.
“It will encourage us to do more. We have no other country than Nigeria, and we must do the best for her. I said it more than a generation ago. Thank you for identifying with our objectives.” he said
Leader of the delegation, His Most Eminence, Prophet (Dr) Solomon Adegboyega Alao, told President Buhari to remain resolute, particularly in the war against corruption.
He said: “We anticipate that corruption, which is killing Nigeria, may fight back, but you will prevail because majority of Nigerians are with you.”
The visitors asked the President to use his good offices to ensure the release of Leah Sharibu, being held captive by Boko Haram for refusing to renounce her faith; canvassed a level playing field for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct free and fair polls; and a consideration of the clamour for restructuring of the Federation.
Speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, the Spiritual Father of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide Prophet Samuel Abidoye said “To see our president and to wish him a pleasant 2019. And to offer our own suggestions on how to govern the country because if he succeeds we will all succeed and to offer him our prayers.
On the advise given to the President, he said “First of all we are aware that Mr. President is very passionate about credible and fair elections, we assured him that we will back him up to that extent.
“We told him to pursue the Anti-Corruption vigorously we assured him that we will back him up on that. Corruption is killing Nigeria and we know unless we kill corruption very urgently it will destroy this country. We assured him of our support at all times.
“For the coming elections, we urge Nigerians to go and obtain their PVC and come out and vote for the candidate of their choice and avoid anything that could lead to violence. And to pray for the umpire, INEC so that they will give us credible elections.
“For the economy of the country to grow, we need to cooperate with the government. For those who feel the golden flee is abroad, there is nothing abroad, Nigeria s the best county anybody can have, we should stay back and salvage it together” he stated
