A Port Harcourt-based cleric, Pastor Akeem Idoniboye has advised Nigerians not to rely on only prayers, but to use their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVC) to elect good leaders in the 2019 general elections.
The Lead Pastor of Glorious Destiny Family Church (Destiny Chapel), Borokiri, Port Harcourt, Idoniboye, gave the advise while preaching a sermon at a thanksgiving service to mark the end of 2018 Men of Destiny Conference.
“2019 is coming and if you want to good governance in Nigeria; if you want good governance in Rivers State, don’t just pray, use your PVC”. He said
The cleric, who spoke on the topic: “Faith of our Fathers”, said the biblical Abraham engaged in submission, sensitivity, separation, setting of own stage and sacrifice, to emerge the greatest father of faith.
“Fathers of faith are always separate; fathers of faith are always submissive, fathers of faith are always sensitive. They set their own stage; they make sacrifices and they know when to substitute.”
“You forfeit your right to greatness; not because you do not have potentials but because you have lost your sensitivity. When you get closer to your dream, you have to know your circle. When you get closer to your dream, you have to narrow your circle because you cannot take everybody.”Idoniboye said
The cleric appealed to men to always create time to worship God as well as to serve Him, saying: “I know that men are very busy but I want to encourage you to always make out time for God.
“God is all that we have. Let us make to celebrate him. Let us not get too busy and forget to create time for God and then for your work in Church and service.”
