Nigeria will survive through prayers – Femi Adesina


Special Adviser to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that Nigeria will survive as long as its people keep calling on God.

He stated this on Thursday in a piece titled, ‘Some prophets see nothing.’


He wrote, “Nigeria will survive, as long as people continue to call on the living God. Nineveh prayed, and God changed His mind about destroying the city.

“President Buhari has said those of them who were on the frontlines for 30 months during the Civil War would never fold their hands, and see Nigeria break.

“Rather than allow it, they would speak to the troublemakers ‘in the language they understand.’

“Former President Olusegun Obasanjo also says those advocating the country’s break-up are ‘idiotic.’ Yes, we will always have people like Buhari and Obasanjo around. Nigeria will survive.

“What am I saying? Don’t nations break? Where is the old Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and many others? Yes, those countries broke into splinters, but as for Nigeria, it would survive. Beyond 2035 and 2040, whether we are still here or not. And as long as patriots continue to lead the country.”

The presidential aide made this comment in response to a “so-called prophecy that Nigeria will disintegrate.”

He wrote further, “The foretelling was credited to Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, in Lagos.

“The prophet gave the date and time of Nigeria’s unraveling as between 2035 and 2040. A person who wants to give you a fib would say his witness is in Heaven.”

“How many people living now would still be alive in 2035 or 2040? Are we even sure of tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year, except by the mercies of God?”
