Yakubu Gowon, former military head of state, says by the end of 2021, Nigeria will experience an economic turnaround that will bring an end to borrowing.
Gowon said this on Monday when he led conveners of ‘Nigeria Prays Mission’ to seek divine intervention against security threats and social-economic instability in the country.
The event was hosted by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Good Shepherd Parish, Yaba, Lagos.
According to NAN, the prayer session was the south-west zone national bimonthly prayer, themed, ‘The Heavens Do Rule’.
In his supplication, Gowon who spoke through a virtual telecast thanked God for His blessings on Nigeria and its people.
The former head of state said the preservation of Nigeria and its people was a priority to God and that people should do their part through prayers to “further provoke favourable spiritual intervention on the country”.
Gowon asked Nigerians to pray for God’s plan for the nation to be accomplished quickly.
He said before the end of 2021, there will be national restoration and the people of Nigeria will witness a pragmatic turnaround of the economy and an end to foreign borrowing by the government.
“The international prophecies that Nigeria is one of the five chosen countries God wants to use to trigger off end-time restoration of the world is being played out here,” Gowon said.
“Another of such proof is the low casualty figure the country has being recording in the surging coronavirus in relation to other countries of the world.”
On his part, Moses Aransiola, the national director of Nigeria Prays, said prayer is needed to free the nation from the shackles that have held it captive for long.
“Those forces of misrule, corruption, nepotism, religious intolerance and political disharmony that has made the country to remain at the latent level, through our prayer, must give way for a formidable Nigeria,” he said.
