On Saturday at the Apostolic Faith Church Choir and Orchestral Camp Concert, Igbesa in Ogun State ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo said he wants to go to heaven and longs to sing among the heavenly host.
He said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“You have to be fully prepared for the second coming of our Lord, there is no compromise.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have a friend who will always say that when we get to heaven, we will be exhausted praising God and it will be like a prison and very boring.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“But with what I have seen by the choir this afternoon, I will want to go to heaven and join the host to sing.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If this is an example of whatÃ‚Â praising God in heaven will be like, then I want to beÃ‚Â part of it. If what I have seen here is an indication of how heaven will be, I will likeÃ‚Â go to heaven.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Jesus Christ came to the world to show us the way to salvation and eternal life. We have a good heritage and we have everything to be proud of.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Obasanjo said God could not fix NigeriaÃ‚Â except Nigerians invite God into their lives collectively and individually.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have a lot of things wrong with this country, if all Nigerians are sincere.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Nigeria can be fixed by God but we have to invite Him into our lives. What we have to do about this country is in our hands.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s grace abounds when we do not abuse it,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
The District Superintendent, Apostolic Faith, West Africa, Rev. Adebayo Adeniran,Ã‚Â said that only tolerance, peaceful coexistence and harmonious living among Nigerians, irrespective of religious and political differences,Ã‚Â could lead to meaningful development.
