Stop pursuing selfish personal agenda, CAC tells National Assembly

The Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide has warned the members of the National Assembly to stop pursuing personal agenda at the expense of the country. The CAC said that the lawmakers should rather prioritise the revival of the nation’s economy with the appropriate laws and policies aimed at taking the country out of the present economic doldrums. The Church, which noted that the current economic crisis and hardship all over the country had not spared anyone, including the clergy, also urged the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to halt the unnecessary killings and maiming of innocent Nigerians across the nation. While speaking to an assemblage of clerics during the opening of the 2016 Annual Pastors’ Conference of the church held at the CAC Ile Aanu, Alasepe Prayer Ground, Ikire, Osun State, President of the CAC Worldwide, Pastor Gabriel Lagunju, insisted that it had become imperative to pray ceaselessly for the nation’s leaders rather than criticizing them. He said, “Our role as Christians is not to criticize or condemn our leaders over the current happenings in our dear country, but rather engage ourselves in sincere prayers for the King of Kings to look down on our land with mercy and favour in all areas.
“The political and socio-economic storm of our nation would have blown off our entire existence, if not for His solid assurance of being with His children, even when going through any consuming fire. Whatever the current political situation in our country is, our greatest role as Christians is to pray for our leaders as we all know that leadership is nothing to be toyed with.” Speaking on the state of the nation, the cleric, declared that, “The effects of our political and socio-economic conditions are really telling on all of us and only God can save us, as a mission, however, and in addition to our prayers.
“Our parliamentarians should ensure that the enhancement of the nation’s economy is always on their priority list and above any personal agenda. This is the only parameter by which they would be assessed when they eventually return home after their respective tenures.
Speaking on the crisis rocking the church, the cleric said that the matter had been left in God’s hands.
Lagunju said, “We have left it on to God; by the Grace of God, we are ready to continue to pray to God for the crisis to end. God who owns the Church knows how to handle it”
On the theme of the conference, he said, “This is the time for us as Christians to call on God to remind people to come to God. Our God is a God of peace, we need his peace”.
