Chris Okotie reveals vision for Nigeria
The Nigeria televangelist and founder of Household of God International Ministries, Lagos, Rev Chris Okotie, has expressed his vision for Nigeria as he clocked 64 years on Friday, June 26, 2023.
The cleric who was a former presidential candidate of Justice Party in 2003, in a statement on Friday by his media adviser, Ladi Ayodeji, spoke for the first time after the inauguration of President Bola Tinubu, expressing his concern over topical national issues.
In a statement at 64th birthday, the Restructuring Campaigner said, ” It is hubristic naivety to envisage the emergence of a new Nigeria from a moribund political cocoon corrupted by duplicity, political criminality and the travesty of the electoral-social etiquette. “The current presidential system of governance has again manifested itself as a hydra-headed monstrousity.
“No matter the outcome of the adjudications of the cases brought before the Nigeria assizes, by opposing political parties, nothing tangible will be achieved under this debilitating system. “We must be willing and courageous enough to abandon this circadian rhythm of political disaster and leadership deficit.
“I am fully persuaded that aboriginal democracy is the only way forward. Let us make hay while the sun is still shining. To do otherwise is tantamount to mindless illogicality and clueless ineptitude.
“At sixty-four (64), I envision Nigeria standing on the brink of the River Jordan anticipating an Aquarian miracle to facilitate our entry into the promise land. The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Nigeria will make a way where there seems to be no way. He has heard our cry. He is faithful. Delay is no denial.”
Rev Okotie, however, said he would continue to pursue his dream of getting the country restructured to pave the way for Aboriginal democracy.
