The ministerial leader of the World Zionist Union in the Southeast Prophet Godfrey Gbujie has called on the Federal Government to apply restraint over its battle against secessionists to ensure peace and tranquillity in the country.
Prophet Gbujie, who made the call during a chat with reporters in Enugu yesterday, equally appealed to secessionist groups such as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Oduduwa Independence activists, Middle Belt and Niger Delta agitators to apply restraint in their counter-battle operations.
He noted that the country had lost so many lives and property worth several billions of naira due to an upsurge in attacks and counter-attacks by government forces and the agitators.
The prophet also advised the Federal Government to stop blaming the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and the Yoruba Nation agitator Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho and others for pushing for Biafra and Yoruba Nation republics.
He said rather than blame the secessionist agitators; the Federal Government should play the role of a father and call them for dialogue.
Gbujie said the current insecurity crises rocking almost all parts of the country, were the handiwork of God.
The spiritual leader of the World Zionist Union announced a plan by the group to hold a Mega Covenant Convention in Aba, Abia State.
He said: “The date of the mega convention would be unveiled after consultation with political, community and religious leaders in the area.”
Gbujie said the aim of the event was to seek the face of God over the mirage of challenges threatening the country.
“God is disgusted with us for the mismanagement of numerous resources He blessed our country with, He is angry with our political leaders for the killings and wrong political and economic programmes,” he said.
Gbujie said the union has lined up activities that would stretch for seven months for the spiritual rebirth of the area, saying the activities would take place in the capital of the named states and some selected towns.
He appealed to political, religious and community leaders in Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Anambra, Imo, Delta and Rivers to support and mobilise their people to participate in the event.
The Mbaise-born celibate prophet who traced the history of his divine encounter on socio-political and religious activities in Nigeria to 1995, added that a lot of innocent blood is crying before God.
“With the activities of Boko Haram and other Islamic fanatics in the North and the recent violent turn of agitation in the South, Nigeria is bleeding from all fronts and God is unhappy with the country,” he said.
