Obasanjo Preaches Love, End To Killings

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - By Ke­hinde Olatunji

FOR­MER Pres­i­dent Oluse­gun Obasanjo has again de­cried the coun­try’s so­cio-eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion, say­ing gov­ern­ment should be proac­tive in tack­ling the chal­lenges.

Obasanjo said this, yes­ter­day, at the cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tion and 42nd an­nual in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence of The Apos­tolic Church La­gos and Western/north­ern Ar­eas Ter­ri­tory (LAWNA) an­nual tagged: “The Im­mi­nence of His Com­ing,” held at the Church’s Head­quar­ter in La­gos.

The for­mer pres­i­dent, who spoke through chair­man of the Po­lice Equip­ment Trust Fund (PETF), Mr. Kenny Martins, urged var­i­ous eth­nic groups to adopt the spirit of love to­wards one an­other.

He said: “The lead­er­ship of the church has been dy­namic, pro­gres­sive and fruit­ful and that is why the fol­low­er­ship is ex­pand­ing. I am prayer­ful that the gov­ern­ment of the day will also be sin­cere to move the na­tion for­ward.

“Mark­ing hun­dred years as a church and as a na­tion is not an easy thing. Our faith is to preach love. As a na­tion, love is miss­ing, if not, we will not just be killing our­selves.”
