MESSAGE TO THE NATION BY HIS HOLINESS THE PRIMATE OF THE CHURCH OF THE LORD (PRAYER FELLOWSHIP) WORLDWIDE THE MOST REVD. DR. RUFUS OKIKIOLA OSITELU ON THE OCCASION OF THE 83RD TABIEORAR CELEBRATION ON AUGUST 22ND 2019 IN OGERE REMO OGUN STATE NIGERIA.
2019 Tabieorar Revelations:
The LORD says, the year 2020 is a year of reward and mixed fortunes. It's a Year of regret, shame and sorrow for the wicked and evil doers, but a Year of joy, comfort and contentment for the upright in Christ Jesus. My reward is coming quickly and everyone will be rewarded accordingly, whether good or bad. I AM the Alpha and Omega, says the Lord God Almighty of the Holy Mount Tabieorar.
Quite a number of burning issues affecting the polity keep coming to the fore, calling for urgent attention by the Federal and State Governments, and indeed all stakeholders. The of God does not exist in a vacuum and therefore has the duty to speak Truth to power at times like this:
Corruption remains the hydra headed monster that has eaten deep into the socio- economic and political fabric of our society. The need to combat it aggressively has become more imperative. If we can effectively fight corruption over half of our challenges will be over. Government must not relent in it's efforts so far, as corruption will definitely try to fight back. All and sundry should be involved in the fight against corruption and Perpetrators should be prosecuted and dealt with in accordance with the law.
In conclusion Nigeria is a blessed country rich in human and natural resources.It is important
for these to be properly and adequately harnessed for the good of all through good governance.We must continue to pray for our country.All hands must therefore be on deck to move our nation forward so that Nigeria can occupy her rightful place in the comity of nations.
God bless you.
The Federal Government's policy of Diversification of the Economy, if properly implemented will go a long way in improving the economy especially in the area of Agriculture and Mineral resources.The value chain in these sectors will create employment and generally boost the economy.Similarly Provision of adequate infrastructure, power, good road network healthcare facilities are cardinal.The ongoing railway projects should be completed early, while the policy of the Ease of Doing Business should be pursued more vigorously in order to attract more investors.
PEACE AND SECURITY
The disturbing state of security in the country despite all government efforts has made it necessary for the government to review the security architecture of the country since the primary function of government all over the world is to protect the lives and property of their citizens, it behoves on the government to go the extra mile, as it is now clearly required to bring to an end the continued wanton destruction of lives and property, senseless killings of innocent worshippers and burning down of places of worship, and maiming of citizens by insurgents.
I hereby urge the Federal Government and Federal Legislators to consider the decentralization system of policing by introducing Regional/Zonal and State/Community Police to deliver more effective and efficient service.
The time is ripe for Nigeria to be restructured in order to ensure good governance, fairness, equity, justice, peaceful co-existence and economic development. Fiscal Federalism is the major antidote for many woes confronting NIGERIA. With Fiscal Federalism in place, all the Regional violent groups will seize to exist, as they will not want to destroy the economy of their Region/Zone. I hereby urge the Federal Government and the National Assembly to promote Fiscal Federalism, and Regional/Zonal integration and healthy competition among the component units of the Federation.
GOD BLESS NIGERIA!
