Nigerians have been cautioned against cursing or blaming leaders for the country’s challenges but praying for them to bring positive change to the country.

Founder of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry, Worldwide (Ori Oke Alaseyori), Ibadan, Oyo State, Prophet Moses Kasali, who gave the advice, lamented that the actions and inactions of some leaders was dividing the country rather than uniting its people.

The cleric stressed the need for leaders to always stand as symbol of national unity and cohesion for the country to experience peace and rest on all sides.

He spoke during the annual Alaseyori 30-day fasting and prayer programme, holding between February 1 and 29, at the church headquarters in Ibadan.

Prophet Kasali said: “Before we can experience total rest in the country, those in authority must start acting like real Nigerians, national and detrabalised leaders.

“When you see a Yoruba, Ibo or Hausa leader in Nigeria, you will see in their dressing where they come from. They are promoting tribe not unity of the country they profess.”

He also spoke on call for President Muhammadu Buhari to resing, saying that was not the solution to the country’s problems.

“If Buhari resigns as president who will take over? It is God who put all leaders in position; all we need do is unite, go to God in prayers and intercede for our country. If the president is helpless about our problems only God can solve it.”
