UYO — Governor Godswill Akpabio  of Akwa Ibom State, has attributed  Nigeria’s backwardness  to idolatry.

Akpabio, who spoke Wednesday, when the President of Christian Council of Nigeria, Most Rev. Emmanuel Udofia, paid him a courtesy visit, said: “Our nation is tottering today because many people have turned away from God.”

The governor observed that many Nigerians had neglected God’s instructions, choosing, rather, to worship idols, saying: “Many have set up foul altars different from that of God. So many have gone to  look for powers in India and from the celestial world in order to attract people to the church. Many people are no longer preaching salvation, they are preaching prosperity. Prosperity may be sufficient for man to live in, but it is not sufficient for salvation.

“When we started campaigning, we shouted Let God’s will be done. When I won, I knew indeed that God’s will had been done in Akwa Ibom State.”
