The General Overseer of Jehovah Power Miracle Tabernacle Church, Prophet Mike Agboola, has condemned negative declarations and prophecies against the country.
Baba Fire, as he is fondly called, spoke with TribuneChurch during the church’s monthly programme, tagged “Fire of Pentecost,” held at the church auditorium.
Prophet Agboola stated that the role of the prophet was to pray for the nation but that some prophets were fond of saying negative things about the country.
“It is really unfortunate that most of today’s prophets have left the basics but have instead pursued monetary gain,” he said.
“But let me quickly add that the present situation in Nigeria demands prayers. It is not about President Muhammadu Buhari. The Bible, in the book of Amos, states that problems would not affect any nation with the knowledge of God. So, let us know that whatever Nigeria is presently going through as a nation, God knows about it,” he said.
The cleric further urged Nigerians, irrespective of religion and tribe, to trust God at all times and in all situations.
On what he would tell President Buhari if he had the opportunity to meet him, the cleric said he would advise him to remain steadfast and put his trust in God. He advised Buhari not to surround himself with sycophants.
