Igbos Have Nothing to Fear, God is the Owner of Nigeria – Prophet Abiara

The General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has said Igbos have nothing to fear as God is the owner of Nigeria even as he urged northern leaders to talk to the youths in the region to avoid another civil war in the country.

Abiara called for peaceful coexistence and unity among the various tribes in the country for national development.

The cleric spoke at a 30-day revival programme which held in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, a statement said on Thursday.

The interdenominational programme, tagged, ‘While men slept’, was to pray for Nigeria.

Abiara, in his message, called for prayers for all political office holders and religious leaders, saying the 36 states of the federation also needed divine intervention.

He said, “I want to call on all Nigerians to keep their minds at rest, especially our Igbo brothers and sisters who have been asked to leave the northern part of the country. God is our father and he owns Nigeria. He will help us as long as we obey Him. I admonish all the easterners not to panic at all. God is in control. They should not react negatively to this matter.

“I also want to appeal to the northern youths to allow peace to reign. I call on the northern elders to calm these angry youths.  We must know that there is no peace in chaos. They must remember that Nigeria has yet to recover from the last civil war that claimed millions of lives and destroyed property.”

The cleric noted that any plot to overthrow the Nigerian government through a coup would fail, and advised the military to focus on the protection of the country from external aggression.
