Bishop David Oyedepo, the presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, has said Nigeria will not breakup in spite of its present challenges.
He said this in a satellite telecast of the church’s prayer session monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria in Jos on Monday, October 2.
There has been agitation for the break-up of the country by some separatist groups but the religious leader has insisted that the country will remain as one.
Oyedepo said it was made known to him via divine revelation in 1979 while praying for the well-being of the country that Nigeria would never disintegrate.
He said: ''The good news is that Nigeria will rise again to glory. Nigeria shall not see war; God will visit eternal silence on every religious bigot being used to cause war; there will be no bloodshed in the country.
''Let Nigeria know peace; make this our independence gift; let every religious manipulator be stopped today. We shall not see war in this country again.
''God has given us peace today for the economic and industrial revolution of Nigeria as a great nation. No agent of the devil will cause problems (for this country).''
The Bishop led members in prayer for peace and prosperity of the country. The prayers were also made for God to intervene and direct the government to make policies that would be to the benefit of the people and the country.
