The President of Tijaniyat of Yorubaland, Usman Sabitu Akanfe, has proferred solutions to the myriad of problems bedevelling the nation, emphasising the need to go back to God in repentance for all misdeeds of the leaders and the governed.
He also appealed for peace during the coming elections, stressing that all the candidates must know that only one person would win any position being contested for adding that “it should not be a matter of life or death”.
His admonition was contained in his address in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital at the launch of his book entitled “Correction On the Way Out of Our Crises” and public presentation of “End Time Correction” magazine.
The cleric said he had privately sent warnings to those at the helms of affairs who turned deaf ears to his recommendations on the way out of the challenges of terrorism, unemployment and corruption bedevilling the nation.
Akanfe said: “Our present problems started from our deviation from the path of God through our disobedience. Our leaders misled us to idol worship ostensibly claiming it was cultural revival in the name of FESTAC 77.”
He argued that the idols brought into the country had been the bane of the nation, adding that “God is ever ready to forgive us if we forsake the sin and genuinely repent and come back to Him.”
Answering questions from newsmen, Akanfe who claimed to be a correction prophet advised Nigerians to forget any respite from any new or old government if the fundamental problems were left unaddressed.
He called on all religious leaders to pool their resources together and pray unto God that there would be no bloodshed or any violence during the coming elections.
The President of Tijaniya said, “Power belongs to God and nobody must attempt to desperately snatch it or sustain it.
“This position I have passed out in my private messages to all those in power and contestants as well as traditional rulers,” he said.
