Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that Nigerians are not preparing for the Kingdom of God.
According to Obasanjo, people behave as if everything starts and ends here on earth.
Obasanjo, who spoke as a Guest of Honour during the dedication of the St. Moses Orimolade Holy Land, the Cenotaph of C&S Founder, noted that the developments and happenings in Nigeria show that people aren’t concerned about God’s Kingdom.
“The situation we have in the country today does not show we are preparing for the kingdom of God but we have to be prepared.”
“There is always a day of reckoning. Christianity was brought to us and many of our people made great contributions and they are unsung heroes now. Missionaries came but we have our own missionaries and leaders and Moses Orimolade was one of them.
“It is because of the church that you and I have the assurance of salvation. Our own church leaders who paid their own prize also helped in spreading the gospel and we pray their efforts are not in vain,” he said.
He revealed that he stopped the removal of Orimolade’s tomb during a road costruction, adding that he never knew the action he took in the past would result to what is been witnessed today.
“When I was told the road work would affect the tomb of Baba Orimolade and even the church set up there in his memory, I agreed that the road is bent to accommodate the preservation of the tomb and the church.
“If I had insisted that the road should not be bent or the contractor insisted and I agreed, the body of Orimolade would have been exhumed and the church may not be here.”
“The action I took in the past, I don’t know it would result in what we are witnessing today and this edifice we are dedicating being here,” he said.
