US-based Nigerian, Supreme Archbishop of the Global Congress of Bishops and Apostles, GCBA, Emmanuel Ojo-Powerson, has called for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He noted that, the insecurity situation in the country has overwhelmed the control of the president.
Archbishop Ojo-Powerson made this call during the Consecration and Enthronement service of Reverend Joshua Adesola Olubadejo held at the headquarters of the Holy Ghost Power Assembly Worldwide in Osogbo, at the weekend.
The cleric ,who stated that Buhari has lost control in securing life and properties of Nigerians, urged him to hand over affairs of the country to competent leader.
According to Ojo-Powerson, the insecurity bedeviling the country was as a result of poor governance which needs urgent solutions.
Highlighting the solutions to Nigeria’s predicament, he said the country should be restructured regionally or be split.
“I am a man of prayer, but we can not hide behind prayer in Nigeria’s situation; we need actions. You can no longer sleep with your two eyes closed in your fatherland because of fear of attack,” he said.
He charged Nigerian youths to summon courage by taking over the leadership of the country and put the nation on the right path that will be of benefit to the next generation.
Speaking in the same vein, the Director of Information of World Bishop Council In Africa, Bishop Seun Adeoye, said President Buhari should leave office now.
The bishop who wondered why the president still remained adamant in relinquishing power to another leader said if it is in a normal climate, the president would have voluntarily resigned by now.
“I am not an apostle of Nigeria dividing, if we get our leadership right, nobody will be willing to leave Nigeria for foreign countries, we are better when we are together, ” he said.
Also, the newly confirmed Bishop Joshua Adesola Olubadejo urged Nigerians to have positive attitude towards the country in order for all citizens to enjoy a nation of their dream.
Bishop Olubadejo, who said failure of the country should not be shifted only to the President noted that every citizen must be up and doing in their respective profession.
