The General Overseer of the Household of God Church International Ministries in Lagos, Rev. Chris Okotie, has suggested solutions which according to him, could help safe Nigeria from its current crises, if implemented.
In a statement titled, ‘Major Crisis Imminent, Okotie Warns’, the clergyman said the restructuring of the country to accommodate fiscal federalism and a total replacement of the 1999 Constitution are the two remedies to save the most populous black nation on Earth.
He however, added that Nigeria will experience rebirth after a major crisis.
“Nigeria is at the cusp of a major crisis which is a precursor to it’s rebirth. Pristine forces which have been a perennial impediment to the fulfillment of Nigeria’s prophetic destiny are about to be pulverized”.
Okotie also called for more practical measures against the spread of violence in the country.
The cleric identified the parious state of the economy, corruption, and endemic poverty as the root causes of the nation’s security crisis.
Taking about reconstructing, he said he supports the “calls for restructuring as one of the key solutions to the problems of nationalities, inequality and ethnic divisions that inhibit national cohesion”.
According to him, “the battle between centripetal and centrifugal forces would continue to fuel instability, unless the constitution is changed to reflect national diversity”.
