President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle, has revealed that the election of Donald Trump into the White House was the work of God to fight immorality in the country. Ayokunle said this at the 29th General Assembly of the Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN) held at First Baptist Church, Garki, Abuja, on Thursday.
During the the three-day programme tagged: “God of Life: Lead Nigeria to Justice, Peace and Dignity,’’ Ayokunle revealed further that Americans would be surprised as the new government under Trump would not tolerate the issues of immorality in the country any more.
“God has now positioned him to fight the immoral life in the American society; the nation that was once known as God’s own country is vastly becoming Sodom and Gomorrah.” Ayokunle stated.
He also called on Nigerians in the north to be fully alert at the plans of the enemy as he said Boko Haram had not been fully defeated, following the recent killing of Lt. Col. Abu Ali and some soldiers in Maiduguri.
“It is not over until it is over; the fact that a top army officer was killed is a signal to the fact that we have not defeated them. It was also an attestation to the commitment of the Federal Government to fight this demon called Boko Haram. So, everybody should be more committed so that the souls of those who died might not be in vain.
“We are diverse because of our doctrinal beliefs but we must be one because Jesus says the church must be one; He prayed for the church. I think the problem with us is the placing of much emphasis on autonomy where it becomes its petals when we lack respect for one another. There should be collective recognition of leadership, desire to put up the things of the world and eternity-centred in such a way that occupying position does not matter to anybody,’’ he said.
He blasted Nigerians for allowing corruption take a hold firm on them as he lamented it has become endemic in the country.
“By the result that corruption has given us presently, I think it is high time we all rose and fight the demon; without fighting it, it will cripple us. If we are not very careful we will end up becoming a crippled giant because we have allowed corruption to enter into our system,’’ he said.
