Bro. Nnamdi Akujor is popularly known as an Evangelist with prophetic global records. This outspoken man of God in this world class exclusive interview with EVEREST EZIHE, an erudite Journalist with swag gave God’s sterling revelations against 2023 elections in Nigeria. To him, it’s sacrilegious to invade worship center. He gave Biblical road maps towards tackling insecurities in Nigeria, as a known Social Crusader, it’s simply a knock and thumbs up to President Muhammad Buhari and Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State Administrations. This interview, is simply an evergreen, religiously diluted prophesies with politically gnashed messages. Honestly, it’s a must read with archive minded records.
SIR, MAY WE MEET YOU ?
My name is Brother Nnamdi Akujor, am a Priest or Reverend Minister serving under Overcomers Evangelical Church Mission, Owerri. I have been the Leader of the Prayer Force and the Director of the popular Friday Miracle Services.
CERTAINLY, THE ISSUE OF INSECURITIES IN NIGERIA IS BECOMING WORRISOME, BARELY,TWO WEEKS AGO THERE WAS A DIMENSION OF ATTACKING CHURCHES AND WORSHIPPING CENTRES, A CASE IN POINT IS THE OWU CATHOLIC CHURCH MASSACRE, FEW DAYS AGO, THE BANDITS HAVE AN EFFORTRY AND WROTE TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE, PUTTING THE NATION ON ALERT FOR THEIR PLANS TO AGGRESSIVELY ATTACK MORE WORSHIP CENTRES, AS A REVERED MAN OF GOD WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ?
Truly, the rate of insecurity in Nigeria today is becoming alarming and worrisome. Nigerians no longer sleep with their two eyes closed. People are enveloped in fears of unknown. It’s really terrible. No one or place is considered safe any more. It’s nauseating, it’s a sacrilege that places of worship are being descrated with attacks by sons and daughters of Jezebel. For me as a preacher of the gospel, it will be biblically and religiously wrong for us Christian’s to fold our hands in self pity and allow this abomination to germinate into culture. It will be unfair for the Christians to fold their hands by anticipating God to do everything for them and humanity. The gospel truth is that there are things God does and there are things we human beings must do as a mandatory social responsibilities. Moreso, there are things the government should equally do. There’s division of Labour. Am a firm believer that God gave us brain so that we could give Him rest. The book of Mathew Chapter 24 verse 6 says that whatever that happens in this world have been said and foretold by our Lord Jesus. Almighty God prophesied that in the last days, there will be rumours of war, tribulations, wars, insecurities among other vices but the ones in Nigeria have taking different dimensions, however the Bible instructed us to watch and pray according to Mathew 26 Vs 41 . The biblical words “watch and pray”, means alot. Thus, praying is one thing, watching is another thing. You can not say you are praying and you are not watching, definitely the enemies may cut off your head. The message is that in the cause of praying you must be vigilant, as your praying you must be security conscious. In the course of praying you must be observant. During my preaching few days ago, I told the congregation that before they kill them and go for confession, may God kill them as they want to kill us. Emphatically, I have said it in some many fora that the government have lots of roles to play in sincerely addressing insecurities and as individuals and corporate organizations, we equally have great complimentary works to do. Certainly, everything cannot be handled by the government alone. The pertinent question is, what are we supposed to do ? You must guide your territory and protect yourself and your territory. The truth of the matter is that am not instigating people to go and source for weapons. Emphatically, no. All am saying and canvassing for is that people should be wise, even Jesus Christ said it in the scripture, that’s Luke 22 Vs 36, according to our Lord Jesus Christ, He said a time shall come when you will need Sword more than your garments. He instructed that any person who doesn’t have sword should sell his garment or properties to buy sword. The truth is that Jesus already knew that a day like this will surely come.
BUT MAN OF GOD, IS IT NOT THE SAME BIBLE THAT SAID THE BATTLE IS OF THE LORD. IF YOU ARE SLAPPED IN THE RIGHT CHEEK TURN THE LEFT, DOES IT MEAN THE BIBLE IS SELF CONTRADICTORY?
If you are a Bible scholar, you will understand that there are reasons in which certain things where said, in a literally context Jesus said if they slap your right cheek turn the left cheek and never revenge. Jesus here is teaching us the need for humility, meekness and forgiveness. It’s just like when we said back to sender, there’s a place the Bible said that it’s a righteous thing for God to compel revelations to the howers of wood. Yes ! The battle is of the Lord but God cannot fight your battle if you don’t engaged Him in that your battle. One thing I always tell people is that heaven will certainly not give you things you deserve until you demand them. Luke 18 Vs 11, when Jesus was about to be arrested by the Jews, Peter angrily drew his sword and cut off the ear of Marcus, you remember what Jesus told Peter, Jesus said to him, put back your sword in your sheath. The message is that Jesus asked him to put back the sword in its sheath, a time shall come when you will need it most. Jesus did not asked him to throw away the sword rather he said put back thou sword in thou bag. All it means is that for now, the sword is not needed but don’t throw it away, because there are many Angels who were guiding Him and a time will come when he will need the sword for better and effective operations. It calls for all and sundry to be vigilant so that we don’t go to the Sanctuary and end up in a Mortuary. It’s really disheartening that people no longer accord needed respect to the House of God, all am saying is that prayers are needed because this country is great. This is in line with Psalm 116 Vs 6, the Bible says pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Nigeria as a nation needs prayers. It doesn’t matter how you are trying to protect or defend yourself. Thus, both the political and religious leaders even Dick and Tom should come together and pray for Nigeria as a nation. If God did not protect a city the security men are watching in vain. We equally have to watch, for those invading the House of God or worship centers. It’s really unfortunate that mere mortals or people are no longer afraid to descrate where the name of God is being exalted, Mathew 6 Vs 9, Jesus said, Our Lord’s Prayer, Our father who at in heaven, hallow be thou name. Hallow be thou name means a lot, it means any where the name is been called, must be treated with respect, equally treat the place the name is being called with equal respect and dignity. Just like Court. I would have read Law in the University, just like in the University under General Studies, GS we were taught that the Court represents the name of a person and it also represents a place., the Judge is the Court and any place in which Judgement is given is also a Court. It’s an obvious truth that the House of God where the name of God is been mentioned, exalted, praised and testified should be sacred and should be treated like a sacrosanct. It’s important to recall that one of the fundamental reasons God disgraced the Biblical King Nebuchadnezzar is due to his lack of respect to the House of God. Honestly, for people to invade the House of God, it’s a height of disrespect and an abomination to God, to His name and to His place even to His people and to His kingdom. It’s condemnable and the culprits should definitely watch out for the wraths of God.
BRO. NNAMDI WITH THE RECENT THREATENING LETTER FROM THE BANDITS TO THE NATION’S INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE, AS A LEADER IN CHRISTENDOM WHAT DO WE EXPECT THE CHRISTIANS TO DO, HENCE THE BATTLE LINE HAS BEEN DRAWN ?
Now than ever is the biblical adherence of praying and watching should be maintained. Don’t be deceived that you are a Christian is not enough for you not to beef up your security intelligence. All kinds of security both men and technological should be employ and adequately deployed. We are living in a world full of tribulations. We must be careful and vigilant, more so, we must ask God for a discerning spirit to dictate and abort evil plans of men, men’s mind are deceptive and apparently wicked, for instance somebody may dress up religiously, unknown to people that he or she is a suicide bomber or spy. I remember in the recent past of a big church where a man of God was holding a crusade and God ministered to him that a suicide bomber is within the crowd and the spirit of God fished him out with the bomb, the church eventually detonated the bomb in safe area. This incident infact happened at Late Prophet TB Joshua Church. It was through the virtue of Grace and spiritual revelation that the young man was located. It’s important that men of God should spiritually and mentally alert. Every Christian should be watchful and be security consciousness. It’s humane and biblical.
THE HEIGHT OF THE INSECURITIES HAVE MADE A LOT OF NIGERIANS SCEPTICAL ON THE CHANCES OF ELECTION HOLDING IN 2023 EVEN SOME SEERS HAVE PREDICTED OTHERWISE, AS A PROPHET OF MOST HIGH GOD WHO HAS IN RECENT PAST CORRECTLY PREDICTED THINGS IN NIGERIA AND IT CAN TO PAST, WHAT’S THE REALTY OF ELECTIONS HOLDING IN 2023 ?
For now am speaking from the scriptural point of view and as an oracle of most high God, that definitely the 2023 elections will hold. This is not the first time we are passing these stresses and hiccups. We have had it before, elections hold, we have had all these suspense before, yet the elections hold. This nation for now is not going to disintegrate or split by the grace of God, however I don’t want any person or group to feel offended, it’s simply what the spirit of God is saying and that remains a gospel truth. Elections will hold, it will hold by the grace of God. Truely God’s hand is upon the nation called Nigeria. Nigeria is a country highly blessed with rich human, material and mineral resources. There will be crises, catastrophy, mayhem and rumours of war, despite all these and more, the elections will still hold peacefully and people’s votes will definitely count. Despite the ripples, crises and wranglings just like the storming ocean, Jesus Christ will still lay hands on the storming ocean and pronuced, peace be still. This is God’s message.
WHAT THEN IS YOUR ADVISE TO NIGERIANS OVER THE ON GOING VOTERS RE-REGISTRATION EXERCISE?
People should go and get their PVC, certainly people’s votes will surely count. PVC is like the bullet in a gun, when you have a gun and you have no bullet, it makes the gun useless, meaniless, powerless and ineffective. For people who fear gun, it’s the bullet they are afraid of not the gun. Thus a gun without a bullet is like a house without a fence. My candid advise is that Nigerians should arm themselves with their PVC. It’s the instrument that gives us the opportunity to excerise our franchise. Let everyone gets his or her own PVC as an instrument to choose the right leader and install purposeful governance. In Nigeria, our fundamental problem is that we have rulers as against leaders. We have been having rulers and not leaders. For now, the nation needs leaders who are patriotic and compassionate. A leader understands the plights of the people and work towards an amicable solutions. We don’t need selfish politicians all we need are leaders who are humane, disciplined, patriotic and people oriented. Thus, the PVC empowers you to empower the person who is going to be a leader. As christians, we can not afford to sheer away from this burden of reality.
YOU ARE FURY , WHEN IT COMES TO SOCIAL CRITICISM AND AS A MAN OF GOD WITH INDOMITABLE COURAGE, IF NATURE ALLOWS YOU TO MEET WITH PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI TOMORROW, WHAT ARE YOU LIKELY TO TELL HIM, IN THE OVERALL INTEREST OF NIGERIANS ?
(Laugh) what am going to tell Nigerian President ? (Cut in) Yes ! Nigerian President is a man with peaceful dispositions. I will tell him that he has done well and good as his best but we need God to give us somebody who will do better than him, Nigeria is a big ! Nation. Very verse. A country with so many ethnic nationalities and diverse religious and ethnic interests. Different believes. Different type of people. It’s not possible to please everyone. My candid mission is to tell him he has tried but let God give us his successor who will be better. He has tried in his own way but we need God to give us somebody who will do better than him so that the name of the Lord will still be glorified.
IT WILL BE WRONG ENDING THIS INTERVIEW WITHOUT HAVING YOUR VIEW CONCERNING IMO STATE GOVERNMENT AS A CRITICAL STAKEHOLDER. WHAT IS YOUR ASSESSMENT OF SHARED PROSPERITY AND 3 R GOVERNANCE OF SENATOR HOPE UZODIMMA ?
Imo State Government ! (he giggled), for me, Imo state is our state, Imo State needs prayers for God’s intervention. It’s my fervent prayers that God Almighty should give wisdom, strength and grace to Governor Hope Uzodimma in pioneering the affairs of the state. Am a leader in my reverred church. Honestly, it’s not easy to be a leader because uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. There are bound to be distractions, founded and unfounded coming from oppositions. The truth about Life is that if you focused on your oppositions, you will definitely loose your position. He should ignore the antics of the opposition’s, they are geared towards distracting his purposeful governance and leadership. The Governor should always go to God for counseling so that he will always do the needful. It’s God that gave him power and for a purpose. It will be to his credit that after assessing his records for 4 years, Imo people will be glad to return him for the second tenure, hence one good tenure deserve another. My prayer to the Governor is that the Almighty God that gave him power will never abandoned him, more so His grace and mercy will always strength him. Certainly, e no go spoil
