‘Prayers won’t allow Nigeria to disintegrate’
The Archbishop of Church of God Mission International, Mrs. Margaret Benson Idahosa, at the weekend, disclosed that Nigeria has not disintegrated because of the prayers by Christians.
She spoke at the second edition of the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa five- Kilometer Legacy Road Race.
The event was organised by the church to mark his 20th year memorial in Benin City.
According to her: “There is nothing that God cannot do, and I want to let you know that it is because we are here that Nigeria is still intact.
“If we were not here praying, Nigeria would have been a thing of the past. But, thanks are unto God that he is able to do that which is committed unto him and no power of the enemy will destroy Nigeria. It is only God and that is all I know.”
Mrs. Idahosa commended the state and the Federal Governments for reintegrating the Libya returnees with their families.
She said the church in its own capacity, has also set up skills acquisition centre, where the returnees are trained in various areas to enable them fend for themselves and familie, and also contribute their quota to the gross domestic product of the nation.
She said it was part of their effort to complement the good work of both the state and the federal government.
“We want to thank God that he is bringing them back and we are having a building now that is scheduled for them. When they come, we would resuscitate them and send them back to their homes to go and do whatever they could.
“We have skill acquisition centre where they learn different things. We have just added different areas to it now, like plumbing, computer, and bricklaying.
Apart from what we know that skill acquisition does, what they normally do, like hairdressing, catering and tailoring.
We have added theses things so that when they come in, we clean them out with the word of God because it is only when the inside is changed that you can change the outside.
“The word of God which is only Jesus can save, and when they know that, they would understand that they could settle anywhere and even in Nigeria and be success.
Explaining the rationale behind the Benson Idahosa 5 Kilometre Legacy Road Race, she said it became imperative to remember what he( Benson Idahosa ) stood for, how God has helped to sustain his legacy since he departed from the planet earth.
“This month of March marks 20 years that Archbishop Benson Idahosa exited from this planet earth and we are remembering him today because of the legacy that he left behind.
