Solution to Boko Haram crisis, not with Mr President - Clerics

Published by Tribune on Thu, 05 Jan 2012


THE insurgence of the Boko Haram in Nigeria has been on for a while and there seems to be no solution in sight.In a bid to find a lasting solution to the Boko Haram attacks, the National President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, led a team of eminent ministers of God to Aso Rock in Abuja to meet with President Goodluck Jonathan and register the Christian community's displeasure on the incessant attacks.As a resolve, Pastor Oritsejafor called on Christians not to avenge the attacks but to defend themselves.Meanwhile, the General Missions Director (GMD) of Fullstature Missions International (FMI), Apostle Isaiah 'Dayo Lawon, has said that he felt sorry for the Christian leaders when he watched them on the television set because the solution to the Boko Haram crisis is not with the President.Speaking at the crossover service at the Conference Centre for all Nations, Secretariat, Ibadan, on December 31, 2011, Apostle Lawon noted that the Christian leaders did not do what they were supposed to do.The GMD, however, noted that 2011 was a year that changed the world ' the economy of Europe crashed, even as he added that 2012 would bring more surprises, 'but it shall be a year of opportunities, year of supernatural blessings,' he said.Speaking in the same vein, Pastor Debo Daniel of the Total Armour Ministry, said the spiritual leaders were not doing what they ought to do.According to him, 'when the Boko Haram people sees God in action, they will be scared!'The man of God, who preached on the theme, 'Prophetic Watchmen', reminded all about the story of Korah, Dathan and Abiram in the Bible, in Numbers Chapter 16 verses 27-33, how when they rebelled against Moses, the servant of God, 'the earth opened and swallowed them up.'Pastor Daniel, however, wondered if at the stage when the Boko Haram were planning their attacks, the earth suddenly opened up and swallowed them, wouldn't the rest of them be scared'That singular act, he noted, would put an abrupt end to the Boko Haram onslaught. "In essence, the solution to the Boko Haram crisis does not depend on the president but on the watchmen."The Boko Haram agenda, Pastor Daniel noted, was to make Nigeria like Libya, Morocco, Tunisia or Algeria.'If we don't pray, that is what the Boko Haram are planning to turn Nigeria into,' the man of God warned.Pastor Daniel, however noted that every believer was called to be a watchman according to Matthew Chapter 26 verse 41, adding that "2012 is the season that only those who watch will survive."Taking his text from Isaiah chapter 56 verses 10-11, he urged Christians to be watchful, else, they would be like the five foolish virgins, who though were pure, consecrated, sanctified, still missed the Master through carelessness.'In this season, be extra-careful. Stop telling people Jesus is coming soon. Tell them Jesus is coming now!,' he admonished.The ex-Muslim turned Christian clergy, who told of how he used to leave beer parlours and sneaked into churches at 11.50 p.m. on December 31st, said the Internet and cable TV had spread the gospel to all the places people couldn't get to, therefore making the coming of Jesus imminent.Pastor Daniel, therefore, urged Christians to be watchmen over 'yourself, your family (Nehemiah 4:14), your city (Jeremiah 29:7), your nation, the people you lead ' e.g. Pastor praying for church workers."He also counselled Christians to dedicate the organs of their bodies to God ' the eyes, ears, nose, hands, legs, heart, forehead, mouth and private parts.
