The General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, on Thursday, said Nigeria needed a deliverer and not a leader.
The cleric, during a sermon at the ongoing Shiloh programme at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, lamented the current security and economic crises, adding that he warned Nigerians in 2015 that the country was heading for trauma.
He urged the people to therefore pray to God to send Nigeria a deliverer so people could have a rest of mind.
He said, “I think I am prompted by the spirit we need to pray for this nation. I warned this nation in 2015 that we were heading for crisis and trauma, many were washing their mouth. They are off today.
“God does not require consensus to raise a prophet. I saw a nation going down the drain, I cried. There are many prophets of politicians who speak what they want to hear.
“I have been very silent, what we need now is not a leader, it is a deliverer. Almost nothing remains except the church that can be called a nation.”
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi was also spotted at the night section of the Shiloh 2022 Programme on Thursday.
