PResident Goodluck Jonathan has been enjoined to daily seek God’s wisdom, as Nigeria is too complex to be ruled by human wisdom.

General Overseer of the Christian Pentecostal Mission, CPM, Rev. Obiora Ezekiel who gave the advice during the third edition of the church’s “Back II Bible Conference” with a theme: “Glorious Divine Nature” in Lagos, also urged political office holders to go back to the compass of life, which he identified as the wisdom of God.

Rev. Ezekiel also accused of the Church of abandon-ing its responsibility to the society.

The cleric, who decried the many security challenges and corruption facing the country, declared that for President Jonathan to succeed, there is need for him to seek the wisdom of God and knowledge on a daily basis.

Admonishing the presid-ent to humble himself and not make any decision in a haste regarding the fuel subsidy, said “God is aware of what is happening in Nigeria. If God permits removal of fuel subsidy, it will happen. The will of God will be done. I advise the president to allow the will of God to happen.”

According to him right-eousness exalts a nation; “our leaders and all that are in authorities today should go back to the com-pass of life which is the word of God. They cannot do it by their own wisdom. The wisdom of man is useless. God’s word is what they need. If you look at this nation there are so many things missing.”

While appealing to the president not to allow the devil to sow seed of disc-ouragement, he charged the Church to let the people know the truth be-cause “if God does not gov-ern a nation the governors are working in vain. Until we turn back to God, things may not be same again. The Church has a responsibility to lead the people to the truth”.
