SAGAMU, OGUNâ€”PRELATE of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr. Sunday Ola Makinde, has asked leaders to rule with the fear of God to justify the confidence of the electorate on them.
Archbishop Makinde who made the appeal at the formal stone laying of the Prelateâ€™s Guest House of the Methodist Theological Institute, MTI, Sagamu in Ogun State, which is sponsored by the Diocese of Remo, said the countryâ€™s unfortunate situation stemmed from the bad and faulty foundation erected by former leaders.
He asked for prayers for the success of President Goodluck Jonathanâ€™s administration, adding that the President should address the epileptic power situation in the country.
Makinde said the President should make God his ultimate at all times, adding that he should effectively and promptly address the insecurity of lives and property, the complete overhaul of the electoral reforms process, as well as the problem of youth unemployment and the Niger Delta issue.
In his remarks, the Bishop of Remo Diocese, Rt. Revd. Babatunde Abiodun Taiwo, urged Nigerians to plant the society on genuine righteousness so that the nation could experience peace and stability.
Bishop Taiwo said that vices perpetrated by previous leaders should be avoided so that the nation can bounce back, adding that those in authority should regard their appointments as service to humanity.
