According to reports, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, has said the President-elect of the United States of America, Donald Trump, was positioned by God to fight immorality in the country.

Ayokunle CAN

Ayokunle said this at the 29th General Assembly of the Christian Council of Nigeria held at First Baptist Church, Garki, Abuja on Thursday.

The three-day programme is tagged: “God of Life: Lead Nigeria to Justice, Peace and Dignity.”

Ayokunle called on Americans to watch very closely as the new administration would not tolerate the issues of immorality in the country any more.

According to him, God has now positioned Trump to fight the immoral life in the American society.

He said a nation that was once known as God’s own country, is becoming Sodom and Gomorrah.

Ayokunle said that there was an extent to which a nation would emphasise secular and individual liberty to the neglect of God’s absolute reign to the affairs of men.

He called on Nigerians to be on guard at all times as Boko Haram had not been fully defeated.

He said: “It is not over until it is over; the fact that a top army officer was killed is a signal to the fact that we have not defeated them.

“It was also an attestation to the commitment of the Federal Government to fight this demon called Boko Haram.

“So, everybody should be more committed so that the souls of those who died might not be in vain.”

The CAN boss called on Christians to be united and not to make their doctrinal beliefs to overwhelm them because Jesus Christ prayed for the church to be one.

Ayokunle said: “We are diverse because of our doctrinal beliefs but we must be one because Jesus says the church must be one; He prayed for the church.

“I think the problem with us is the placing of much emphasis on autonomy where it becomes its petals when we lack respect for one another.

“There should be collective recognition of leadership, desire to put up the things of the world and eternity-centred in such a way that occupying position does not matter to anybody.”

Ayokunle said corruption in the country was endemic and called on the government to keep fighting it so that the country would not be crippled.

According to Ayokunle, corruption appears to be endemic in the Nigerian society and it has got to the fabric of our national lives.

He said there is hardly any sector that can be exempted.

He said: “By the result that corruption has given us presently, I think it is high time we all rose and fight the demon; without fighting it, it will cripple us.

“If we are not very careful, we will end up becoming a crippled giant because we have allowed corruption to enter into our system.”

Earlier, the President of CCN, Dr. Emmanuel Josiah, had called on Nigerians to support the fight against corruption, asking the citizenry to repent and return to God.

According to Josiah, the greatest challenge that we are facing now is sin and where ever there is sin, we cannot experience any progress and God can never be there.

“There is no child of God that will not support the fight against corruption,” Josiah said.

Dr. Rufus Ositelu, the Primate, The Church of the Lord Prayer Fellowship Worldwide, said corruption could not be fought totally, but could be brought to a minimum so that the country would move forward.

According to Ositelu, what is really disturbing the progress of this country is corruption.

He said if corruption is fought to a standstill by next year, we will see progress in the country.

  1. Rev Ayokunle is completely out of touch with reality of the modern world
    Imagine how archaic his mindset is
    He is really having a sweet dream if he thinks that anyone will dictate to others how to live their lives in a highly civilised society like America
    It's here in Africa and other developing world that some pastors can prey on the gullibility of some folks to control their mind as they choose
