Matthew Morakinyo, the lead Pastor of God’s City International Church in Abuja, Matthew Morakinyo, has called on Nigerians to seek the face of God in choosing their leaders. Nigerians should seek God’s intervention over security and economic challenges in the country.
He stated these during a press briefing on the church’s forthcoming Power Touch Night scheduled to hold at the Velodrome, National Stadium Abuja.
The clergyman was responding to a question relating to clerics endorsing candidates for public office from the pulpit.
“Nigerians cannot afford to ignore the intervention of God in picking leaders with conscience that would govern the country.
“Self-appointed leader is not advised, God who knows the heart of a man can give us a leader that will heal the land”. On our part, we have been praying and we continue to pray and God will answer us.
“God is the creator of man, and he is the one that knows the mind of man so it is better to turn to God who knows man and to ask him to give us a leader. A self-appointed leader is not advised. It is God that gives leadership. God will give us a leader of his choice.”
