The General Overseer of Salvation Power Ministry, Pastor Samuel Agbamuche, has said that religion is not the reason behind Nigeria’s Problem – most importantly the severe violent civil disturbances in the northern part of the country.
Agbamuche stated this while reacting to clashes between Christians and Muslims in the North.
Speaking with Southern City News on Friday in Asaba, Delta State, Agbamuche said it is wickedness that causes the clashes, and not religion.
“It is the devil that enters the minds of the people before they begin to act, not religion. Christians, Muslims, and traditionalists are not bad people. The mission of the devil is to destroy, steal and kill. Christians and Muslims preach peace.
“We are one people, as Christians, we should pray. I don’t think the disparity in this country has to do with religion even if you have nothing to believe in, wickedness is placed in the heart of man. Even as Christians when things go wrong, we are quick to blame the church.”
Speaking on the growth of democracy in Nigeria, he declared that God is working and that Nigeria will gradually be delivered from the grasp of the wicked.
“As a country, we have our challenges but God is working on Nigeria. No matter what happened during the elections held, whether you win the elections by rigging or merit, God has a plan for Nigeria and He is working out the plan soon,” he said.
According to him, clerics can be in politics if that is God’s plan for them.
