DIVINE REVELATIONS TO NIGERIA FOR 2023
The Lord says I will do a new thing in Nigeria and I will make a way for Nigeria to flourish again.
There will be breakthrough politically, socially and economically, let my people pray fervently against the sudden end of transition from one democratic administration to another cause by coup d’ etat.
HOW PRIMATE OSITELU’S PREDICTIONS IN 2021 CAME TO PASS
“The church does not exist in a vacuum. It is an integral part of society and therefore has the duty to speak Truth to Power, especially at times like this. Nigeria is currently facing quite a number of socio-economic and political challenges that need to be addressed with utmost importance and urgency. They include Peace and Security, Corruption, Economy and Infrastructure, Youth and Unemployment, Elimination of Violence Against Women and Children, COVID-19 Pandemic, and Restructuring and Fiscal Federalism.
ON PEACE AND SECURITY
The primary function of any government is the protection of the lives and property of its citizens. Peace is cardinal for development. The pathetic state of the nation’s security is worrisome. Insurgency, shedding of innocent blood, wanton destruction of lives and property, banditry, insurgency and kidnapping of people including innocent schoolchildren are rampant and should not be allowed to continue.
The time has come for the federal and state governments, stakeholders and indeed all Nigerians to aggressively and decisively combat insecurity in the land. Perpetrators should be brought to book and prosecuted. The security architecture of the country is due for review. The current agitation by some sections of the country to break away is an indication of loss of confidence and lack of trust in government. It is therefore important that the issue of security be addressed urgently.
I hereby urge the federal government to consider the decentralization system of policing, by introducing Regional and Community Police to deliver more effective and efficient service.
Life is precious and sacred, and no one has the right to terminate it with impunity.
Corruption in Nigeria has become endemic. The hydra-headed monster has continued to ravage and eat deep into the socio-economic and political life of society. It cuts across and includes Federal and State governments’ agencies and parastatals. The EFCC and ICPC should be strengthened and empowered, and if necessary merged together in order to fight corruption more aggressively; while putting more stringent measures and policies put in place. “Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach.” (Proverbs 14:34).
ON THE ECONOMY AND INFRASTRUCTURE
The diversification of the economy is a step in the right direction and should be implemented more vigorously, especially in the areas of agriculture and mineral resources. This will create avenues for wealth creation and massive employment. Government should embark on people’s oriented projects, and put in place structures in the areas of health, housing, education and power.
For instance, electricity all over the world is to national development what blood is to the human body. Therefore, adequate provision of power is cardinal for any sustainable development. I hereby urge the Federal Government to vigorously address the issue of electricity.
It is important to stem the tide of the rising cost of living (foodstuffs, fuel electricity, etc) and thus reduce inflation.
ON THE YOUTH AND UNEMPLOYMENT
I wish to reiterate that the time is ripe for the government to dialogue with the youth for a better tomorrow and a new Nigeria. The events of 2020 have brought to fore the need to actively dialogue with the youth and involve the youth in governance. The need to engage and empower the youth cannot be overemphasised.
The high rate of unemployment, especially among the youth remains a source of concern. I hereby urge the Government to vigorously diversify the economy and use the agricultural, mining, manufacturing and information technology sectors to reverse the trend of mass unemployment.
ON THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN
The rate of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) against women and girls is on the increase, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. Domestic violence, child
abuse and rape are rampant. Stiffer penalties backed by legislation for rapists are highly recommended. Similarly, I hereby urge all the states that are yet to domesticate the Child’s Rights Act 2003 and Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act (VAPP) 2015, to do so with utmost urgency.
ON COVID-19 PANDEMIC
The current increase in the number of confirmed cases due to the 3rd wave of the pandemic is a serious source of concern. I urge all and sundry to adhere strictly to all the United Nations protocols on COVID-19. I wish to commend all frontline workers for their selfless service. I commiserate with all those who have lost loved ones, and may the souls of the departed rest in peace. May God keep you all safe under the shadow of His Wings.
On RESTRUCTURING AND FISCAL FEDERALISM
Restructuring into Regional Governments is the prerequisite for ensuring good governance, fairness, equity, justice, peaceful coexistence as well as economic development for Nigeria, and the time is now. It is the panacea for the myriad of challenges confronting the country. I, therefore, urge the Federal Government and the National Assembly to give it due consideration in order to enhance and fast-track the development of the country. Fiscal Federalism is the major antidote for many of the woes confronting Nigeria. With Fiscal Federalism in place, all the regional violent groups will cease to exist.
I hereby urge the Federal Government and the National Assembly to promote Fiscal Federalism and regional integration, and healthy competition among the component units of the federation.
I enjoin my colleagues of other denominations and indeed all Nigerians to have the fear of God, and continue to intercede for Nigeria so that peace, security and prosperity will reign in the country. May the peace of God which surpasses all human understanding forever abide with you all, and may the good Lord intervene in the affairs of Nigeria, in Jesus name, Amen.
HIS DIVINE REVELATIONS TO NIGERIA (2022)
The country Nigeria is likened to a ship found in the middle of an ocean surrounded by a whirlwind and stagnated to a spot. All of a sudden, the hand of the Lord emerge which push the ship forward to. The Lord says, the above message describes the current position of Nigeria despite the economic recession compounded by COVID 19 pandemic, yet there is going to be a divine intervention that will turn things around for the betterment of the country. There is a ray of hope for those seeking admission because they will encounter breakthroughs.
The death of two prominent kings manifest, top functionaries among the politicians will lose their relevance. The Lord says, let the youth be warned against fraudulent practices which may lead them to jail for many years. The Lord says some politicians and famous individuals will be exposed of their ill-gotten wealth.
HIS DIVINE REVELATIONS FOR THE WORLD (2022)
The Lord says, there will be disasters, calamities and catastrophes around the world in the year, but I will protect those who are simple-hearted. Those who acknowledge me as Lord and saviour, and those who put their trust in me says the Lord God Almighty. The Lord says I will be with my obedient children in times of trouble,I will deliver them from satan’s schemes, spiritual attacks, principalities and other strongholds, says the Living God.
The Lord says, the world has turned away from the path of salvation and served other gods thereby sheds innocent’s blood. The Lord says there will be a relief towards tackling the COVID-19 pandemic that is currently ravaging the world. The scientist will come up with new discoveries which will be of great benefit to the world. Let the beloved call upon me to avert flood disaster, earthquake, economic crisis, banditry crisis, human trafficking, robbery and war between two nations. The Lord says there will be a change of government during which one of the leaders of the countries will die in office as a result of health complications.
