Adegboye, a Senior Pastor, Word Alive Ministries, Ibadan, made the call in a statement in Ibadan, ahead of the church’s 30th anniversary coming soonest.
The cleric described Nigeria as a country created by God for a purpose.
He urged them to ensure that they carried out the will of God over the country, saying that God’s Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy would soon come to the land.
According to him, God would reign in Nigeria, in spite of the challenges facing the country.
Quoting from the Proverbs 14: 34, Adegboye said that the scripture gives human beings the opportunity to return to God, each time they err, adding, “it involves doing things right, as Nigerians will exalt the country”.
The cleric expressed displeasure at the rate Nigerians were breaking the law with impunity, urging them to adhere to the stringent laws of the land, for the country to be better.
He said, “Our Nation is so programmed with unrighteousness, that it has become the second nature for us. We break every law with impunity and that is why Nigeria is what it is today.”
Adegboye prayed that Nigeria, by the spirit of God, would submit itself to the will of God.
