The Senior Pastor of House on the Rock, Paul Adefarasin, has warned Nigerians not to misuse the opportunity to call “Nigeria back to patriotism” in 2019.
Adefarasin, who spoke at the Experience 2018 (#TE13), a musical concert held annually in Lagos, called on Nigerians to vote for their values when they go to the polling booths in 2019.
On the leadership of the country, the clergyman stressed that he would not want to be ashamed to be called a Nigerian when in a gathering with other nationals of the world.
His words: “When I stand beside a Canadian, an American, a Britain, a Belgian, I don’t want to feel ashamed because of what miss leadership and miss governance over the nearly 60 years of our existence has done to what a beautiful lady called Nigeria, have now been so emaciated and needs specialised intensive care if she is to make it out of the sickness.”
“Do not misuse an opportunity like this to call Nigeria back to patriotism. When you go to the polling booths, vote for your values,” he added.
Before the event comment, the clergyman had said the theme of the event is “Jesus, Our Peace” with 500,000 in attendance and millions said to be watching online. The event is taking place at the Tafawa Balewa Square.
“Peace (as I know it) is not the absence of tension but the presence of Justice,” Pastor Adefarasin had said.
