As the regime of insecurity and general economic hardship in Nigeria seems unabating, the General Overseer of Blood of Jesus International Prophetic Ministry, Gidan Mangoro Abuja; Prophet Matthew Ibadin has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to make a paradigm shift towards checkmating the high level of insecurity and hardship in the country.
According to the gospel preacher who spoke recently at the Fourth Anniversary of his church, “the state of the nation where killings, kidnapping, banditry and armed robbery have become order of the day is most worrisome.”
“I appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to hear the cry of Nigerians who are passing through untold hardship to do the needful by putting an end to insecurity, religious crises, corruption that has eaten up the present administration.
Prophet Ibadin has also charged President Buhari’s administration to do more in boosting agriculture, regulate prices of goods and services, provide healthcare services, employment and address plight of the vulnerable people who are less privileged in the country.
The General Overseer has in the same vein charged religious leaders to rededicate themselves and remain uncompromising in the face of increasing spate of financially induced miracles stressing that “he who called us, is faithful to sustain us. We must separate ourselves from this unholy act capable of destroying the church,” he posited.
As a growing ministry, Prophet Ibadin admonished his members to do more in winning more souls to Christ. In his words: “we must get out and do what God has in mind for us which is winning lost souls for Him.
“God has given us the job to do in the church, at our place of work, at home, in the community. The time has come to be strong and work hard for God,” he said.
The theme of this year’s anniversary is SUPERNATURAL SHIFTS and according to Ibadin, “the Lord gave me the theme to tell my brethren that the time has come so that he will take us from ZERO to HERO mentally, spiritually, physically, financially and otherwise.”
