Renowned cleric, Bishop Sunday Garuba, has declared that all the conspiracies against President Muhammadu Buhari and the country through the EndSARS protests will end in futility.
Bishop Garuba made the proclamation on Friday at Day 2 of the ongoing 21 Days Special Prayer and Fasting organised by National Inter-Faith and Religious Organizations for Peace (NIFROP).
Bishop Garuba, NIFROP’s National Coordinator, noted that demonic forces indeed ganged up against the country using the EndSARS protest to accomplish their evil desires against Nigeria.
But for divine intervention, he said the nation would have been history by now with the destructions and loss of lives from the violent mass action.
Bishop Garuba also revealed that ” forces of evil also succeeded in hijacking a genuine aspiration by Nigerian youths to see to an end to police brutality”.
According to the Christian cleric, the prayers is intended to set the wrath of God against all those that have constituted themselves into principalities to destroy Nigeria.
At the end of the exercise, the preacher assured that “good shall triumph over evil, and Nigeria shall experience peace and tranquillity to the shame of those demonic agents that have ganged up against our country”.
NIFROP’s National Coordinator added that those that hijacked the EndSARS shall be exposed and put to shame.
He, however, called on all citizens to stand-in for Nigeria in this critical point of our existence.
Read full speech below:
I bring Calvary greetings to you all.
It feels great to be in our midst again as we fellowship in worship and prayers to God for our dear country against the forces of evil that haven’t relented in their desire to see that our country disintegrates into chaos.
God indeed kept Nigeria. God indeed proved Himself faithful once again in the light of the EndSARS protest that led to some unpleasant events across the country. Events that were orchestrated from the pit of hell against Gods own country.
My brothers and sisters, one of the strong points of this gathering is our diversity and our unity of purpose. We have indeed proved to the world that religion and ethnicity have no place in our collective desire to ensure that Nigeria experiences sustainable peace, growth and development.
The EndSARS protest has come and gone, and I want to use this medium to tell us that our gathering here is to take the battle to God against all the demonic forces that have conspired against Nigeria.
As children of God, we are duty-bound to intercede for the good of our land. We are also duty-bound to ensure that the evil desires of those that do not want Nigeria to experience peace are truncated.
My brothers and sisters, this 21 days of prayers is intended to set the wrath of God against all those that have constituted themselves into principalities that want to see to the destruction of Nigeria. For the Bible reminds us in the book of Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
The Bible also reminds us in the book of Psalms 35:2-4 “Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. Let them be confounded and put to shame that seeks after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.”
My brothers and sisters, we shall use the occasion of this 21 days of prayers to draw our spears through prayers to wage war against all the evil forces against the soul of Nigeria. And by the grace of God, they shall all be put to shame.
My brothers and sisters, we must all know that demonic forces indeed ganged up against our dear country using the EndSARS protest as a smokescreen in their evil desires against Nigeria. But for divine intervention, Nigeria would have been history by now with the destructions and loss of lives that occasioned the EndSARS protest.
These forces of evil also succeeded in hijacking a genuine aspiration by Nigerian youths to see to an end to police brutality. But they instead turned it into an avenue to wreak havoc in the polity through the senseless killing of law enforcement officers, as well as the destruction of public and private properties.
As we gather here to pray for Nigeria, let us have it at the back of our minds that indeed this is time to bring to an end all the evil machinations against Nigeria because we shall pray fervently without seizing for 21 days, and the God that we serve shall consume all those that are plotting evil against our country.
We must understand that the battle for the soul of Nigeria has been taken to God in prayers. At the end of the day, good shall triumph over evil, and Nigeria shall experience peace and tranquillity to the shame of those demonic agents that have ganged up against our country.
My brothers and sisters, I am glad that we are have come out in our numbers to join hands and in one voice to seek for divine intervention in addressing the threats posed by some demonic forces against our country.
I tell you all gathered here today that indeed the end of the road has come for those demonic forces in individuals, groups and associations. They shall indeed be put to shame to the glory of God.
My brothers and sisters, we shall be praying and fervently too. We shall commit Nigeria to the throne of heaven, holding our hands and in one voice to pray for divine intervention in the affairs of Nigeria.
The Bible assured us in the book in Psalms 125:2 “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forever.” God is not a man that He should lie for His words are yes and amen.
I tell you all gathered here that all the conspiracies against our dear country shall fail woefully. In the book of Exodus 14:13, “Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.”
This is indeed the hour of liberation for Nigeria against the forces of darkness that have vowed to destroy our great country. We know that they have held nocturnal meetings plotting the downfall of Nigeria. But our hope and strength are in the book of Psalms 91; 7 “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
My brothers and sisters, I want us to shout in joy because God is on the throne. He has promised us great victory, and we are confident that at the end of the day we shall shout a great Halleluiah to the Host of Heaven for his faithfulness and if God is for us, who can be against us?
My brothers and sisters, I must tell us gathered here that no one can stand against our great country, and no evil machination against the peace and stability of Nigeria shall succeed. Consequently, we shall pray fervently in different languages to God for our membership cuts across religion and ethnicity for we are united in one strong voice and with a passion to intercede on behalf of Nigeria.
I want to especially thank you all for coming out in numbers in our characteristic manner to pray for Nigeria. And the God that we serve shall come to our rescue for we are indeed victorious in Christ Jesus.
My brothers and sisters, these are indeed dangerous times, and we must stand-in for our great country in this critical point of our existence; hence this 21 days fasting programme. As we pray to God, we must also pray for the repose of the souls of all the law enforcement officers that lost their lives during the hijacked EndSARS protest that resulted to the condemnable burning down of police stations and units in parts of the country. Our prayers are with the families that they left behind, and may God grant them eternal rest in Jesus name.
I want to thank you all for your outstanding display of commitment to the Nigerian cause as evident in our previous intercessions in seeking divine intervention for the myriads of security challenges in the country. God has indeed been faithful, and His mercies endure forever.
My brothers and sisters, this is indeed another occasion for us to cry to the Host of Heaven to show His mercies upon Nigeria and put to shame all those demonic forces that have ganged up against our peace and stability.
I prophesy that at the end of the 21 days of prayers, all those that hijacked the EndSARS shall be exposed and put to shame. For what a faithful God that we serve. The God of signs and wonders, the God that neither sleeps nor slumber and the ever-faithful God.
My brothers and sisters, as we settle for the task at hand, I pray for God’s grace upon us throughout the duration of this programme. I also charge us to pray for continued peace, unity and stability of our great country.
God bless us all.
I am yours in the Lord’s vineyard.
COVID-19: Coalition Salutes FG, NPHCDA Overall Early Arrival Of Vaccine
With the expected arrival of coronavirus vaccines into the country on Tuesday, the National Coalition on Vaccine Awareness and Administration (NCVAA) has applauded the Federal Government and National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).
The group, at a press conference on Monday in Abuja, noted that this is a big step in containing the rampaging contagion that has consumed millions across the world.
Nigeria will become the third West African country to benefit from the COVAX facility after Ghana and the Ivory Coast when it receives 3.92 million doses of the vaccine.
And the convener, Gabriel Agogo, speaking on behalf of the coalition, said Nigeria can not be left alone in the global immunisation against the disease, especially with the conspiracy theories and propaganda being peddled around.
He urged all Nigerians to become agents of this public awareness and actively partake in the immunization to protect ourselves, our families and the public health of the nation.
The NCVAA, however, called on all Nigerians irrespective of partisan, religious and ethnic affiliations to come out en mass to mobilize their families and friends for the Covid-19 vaccine administration as a way of totally defeating the spread of the coronavirus disease and saving humanity from its destruction.
Read the full statement below:
The leadership and members of the National Coalition on Vaccine Awareness and Administration (NCVAA) salutes and welcome all of you to this press conference. We also salute the courage and perseverance of Nigerians in the firm determination to fight Covid-19 to a standstill by observing the Government protocols to curtail its spread. Our case would have been worse, had Nigerians failed to imbibe self-discipline.
As all of you are aware, we have lost thousands of our brothers and sisters to the pandemic since it broke out in Wuhan, China in February 2020 and became a world health threat. And many more people infected by the virus are still hospitalized in different hospitals in the country. We prayerfully wish them a speedy recovery.
But the good news is that majority of Nigerians are uninfected by the Covid-19 pandemic. It is this larger population of Nigerians free from the venom of the Covid-19 pandemic that our Government is more interested in insulating from the deadly disease. It is in this light that we have decided to create public awareness of the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccine for immunization through this press conference and other necessary public enlightenment activities, to attract massive public awareness to it.
Therefore, we have decided to address Nigerians and draw their attention to the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccine in the country and the kick-start of the Covid-19 vaccine immunization exercise nation-wide. The vaccine is a proactive public health safety measure, which we believe will automatically arrest the spread of Covid-19 and put a halt to the other public inconveniences it causes if all of us avail ourselves to the immunization which is free of charge to everyone.
We wish to let all Nigerians know that the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has acquired and taken possession of millions of dosages of the Covid-19 vaccine. It is a scientifically approved immunization vaccine, certified by the World Health Organization (WHO) for onward worldwide circulation to fight the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
Nigeria cannot afford to be left out of this global trend. Nigerians should therefore emulate other very religious nations like Saudi Arabia, Rome, India, Australia, Sweden and a host of other countries worldwide which have accepted the Covid-19 vaccine and immunized their people with it. These countries have overcome the Covid-19 pandemic as a result of the intake of the Covid-19 vaccine. And with our collective resolve now, we shall also overcome it.
We find it imperative to emphasize this point because of the underground campaigns, conspiracy theories and propaganda peddled by perpetual anti-progressive forces in the country, who have aligned the Covid-19 vaccine to some unproven and barbaric death claims. There is no scintilla of truth in these negative assertions on the Covid-19 vaccine
Permit us to sound it loud and clear that the Covid-19 vaccine is approved by WHO, the global health body, after several scientific and clinical tests, before certifying it as safe for all humanity. So, in Nigerian, we must guide against repeating the same mistake which opposed the idea of launching a G5 network for telecoms in Nigeria. We are too enlightened to be deceived by those who wish us no good.
Nigeria is a very strategic country in the African continent, which cannot afford indifference or antipathy in the global fight against the deadly Covid-19 epidemic. NCVAA is aware of the campaigns of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) on the Covid-19 vaccine and has decided to add its voice to it. We expect all Nigerians to become agents of this public awareness and actively partake in the immunization to protect ourselves, our families and the public health of the nation.
NCVAA is hereby calling on all Nigerians irrespective of partisan, religious and ethnic affiliations to come out en mass to mobilize their families and friends for the Covid-19 vaccine administration as a way of totally defeating the spread of the coronavirus disease and saving humanity from its destruction. We must resolve today to victoriously conquer the Covid-19 pandemic, in the same manner, we defeated Ebola, bird flu, SARS which occurred years back.
The Covid-19 vaccine is advantageous in several ways. Socially, the immunization against Covid-19 will secure us against contracting the coronavirus disease and ensure greater chances of our freedom from other allied ailments which comes with the Coronavirus and restore our social and communal interactions.
The Covid-19 vaccine is not only capable of saving the lives of the entire humanity, but it can completely prevent hospitalizations’ and the mass deaths we have experienced in the past over Covid-19. It will save us from agonies and pains associated with it. All conspiracy’s theories against the vaccine should therefore be discarded.
Also, medical scientists and researchers who have painstakingly worked and developed the Covid-19 vaccine have attested to its nearly 100% effectiveness at preventing other related severe illnesses related to it, like the common cold amongst others. Taking the vaccine is akin to the popular African proverb which alludes to someone using one stone to kill two birds.
Furthermore, a general public immunization against Covid-19 nation-wide in Nigeria would ease the Government lockdowns and other disproportionate or stifling public health measures, which causes us varying disruptions in our everyday operations. This is why we have found it expedient to endorse the NPHCDA Campaigns. It is now a direct invitation to every Nigerian not only to take the vaccine but become the chief propagandists of this good message of redemption from the grip of Covid-19.
NCVAA profoundly thanks the Almighty God for His Grace upon us; we salute the medical scientists for their wisdom in developing the Covid-19 vaccine and finally, the FGN under President Buhari for securing the vaccines and their early delivery to us. It shows we have a Government and a leader who is sensitive to the public health of Nigerians. We immensely thank all of you.
Thank you all and journey mercies to your various destinations.
Insecurity: Group Demands Collective Action By Governors
The Coalition for Truth and Justice (CTJ) has charged state governors to rise to the occasion as chief security officers of their states and stop playing politics with human lives.
The coalition, which made the call at a press conference, on Monday, in Abuja, also noted that collective action is required to end the tide of insecurity across the nation.
In his address, the head of the secretariat, Comrade Ohene Dominic, said the lackadaisical attitude of some governors has escalated criminal activities in the country, adversely causing untold hardship on the people.
Dominic said their failure to commit resources to security has made schools and other places of importance more susceptible to attacks by unscrupulous criminal elements.
According to him, these governors should be treated as saboteurs whose interests is on how they can amass wealth by dipping their hands in state coffers to sustain their lavish lifestyles.
The Coalition for Truth and Justice therefore called on all well-meaning Nigerians to henceforth begin to demand accountability from the various state governors.
On their part, the coalition, however, urged the governors to wake up from their slumber and do the needful as this is not the time for playing to the gallery.
Read the full statement below:
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to this press conference standing on the existing protocol.
The peculiarities of time occasioned by the unwholesome activities of criminal elements across that country have once again brought out the national question on how state governors have abdicated their responsibilities as Chief Security Officers of their states.
It is indeed worrisome that this trend has continued unabated and largely responsible for the escalation of the activities of criminal elements across the country which has indeed caused untold hardship on the people.
The various cases of kidnappings and armed banditry in some states are consequences of the lackadaisical attitude of some governors that have been engaged with playing politics to the detriment of human lives.
It is unacceptable for this trend to continue because of the larger consequences which if not abated could spiral out of control and Nigeria might be engulfed with acts of criminalities, so much so that might lead the country on the path of regression.
The Coalition for Truth and Justice as a critical stakeholder in the country is aware that some governors have deliberately allowed criminal elements to have a field day in their states because of what they aim to achieve politically. Consequently, we must ask questions hence this press conference to put issues in proper perspective before the generality of Nigeria towards making the country safe for all concerned.
It is our considered view that if the various state governors had been alive to their responsibilities, the embarrassing incidences of kidnappings of school students in public schools would not have been possible.
It is indeed shameful that some state governors would commit huge resources to pursue endeavours that do not have a direct impact on the lives of the citizens while ignoring the need to provide adequate security for schools and other places of importance that are susceptible to attacks by unscrupulous criminal elements.
It is gladding that this much was highlighted by a fellow governor wherein he stated that governors have failed in providing security in their states in their capacity as Chief Security Officers. It remains despicable that the song on the lips of most governors is that they are not in charge of the security of their states; we beg to ask what they have been doing with the security votes that are accruing to states monthly. How have these monies meant for security spent by the various state governors?
If the governors also claim not to have the required funds to provide security in their states, we also beg to ask where they get the funds with which they pursue their political agenda during times of elections.
It remains a sad tale that this anomaly has thrived over the years and the various state governors have been playing politics with human lives and they seem to have no grouse with how innocent school children are abducted from their dormitories. They also have no grouse with how under their nose, militant groups are grouping and entrenching acts of violence that have led to scores of death and destruction of properties.
It is thus our stand that the various state governors can be regarded as saboteurs whose interests lie in how they can amass wealth by dipping their hands in state coffers to sustain their lavish lifestyles.
The Coalition for Truth and Justice is using this medium to call on all well-meaning Nigerians to henceforth begin to demand accountability from the various state governors with how they have been utilizing the security votes that run into billions of naira monthly.
It is also our stance that the federal government must begin the process of holding state governors accountable for avoidable security breaches in their states and taking steps to ensure that monies meant for security are not diverted to private pockets.
The Coalition for Truth and Justice is using this medium to appeal to the federal government to withhold allocations to states whose governors have been found wanting in the discharge of their responsibilities as Chief Security Officers of their states.
This is our opinion would make the governors wake up to their responsibilities and ensuring that they live up to expectations in this critical task at hand because if funds are continually made available to these non-performing governors, it would be tantamount to economic waste.
The Coalition for Truth and Justice is of the considered opinion that Nigerians must begin the process of tasking the various state governors on accountability and commitment to entrenching good governance for the task at hand requires all hands to be on deck.
The state governors must also wake up from their slumber and do the needful as this is not the time for playing to the gallery. Nigerian Governors must wake- up to their responsibilities and stop playing politics
Thank you for your attention in this regard and we expect to see results in the coming days, weeks, and months in Nigeria.
God bless Nigeria.
