Earlier in a sermon, Rev’d Asubiaro Abel, Ebute Meta DCC Chairman of ECWA Church, called on government to show responsibility and order the stoppage of the killings of innocent Nigerians to show that he is in charge and President for all and not for a few.
The clergy man lamented that rather than think of the growth of the nation, Nigerians have concerned themselves with what is divisive and not about growth and development.
While describing the country as unsafe to live in, Rev’d Abel described death as a necessary end for all mortals. He added that while everyone born into the world has his name written down in a book, however, only few are privileged to have their names written in the book of Life.
He bemoaned the level of sin in the lives of the people, lamented that those in positions of authorities rather than make the people their priority have chosen to make their personal pockets and accounts their gods.
He decried the state of the nation’s roads, described it as death traps. He said the security agencies in the country have lost every sense of responsibility to protect the citizens and called for a change of heart.
Rev’d Abel urged Nigerians to strive to make the book of Life, where only those who are righteous and live lives worthy of emulation would have their names found in it.
