#EndSARS protest is divine intervention to free the oppressed, says Okotie
Chris Okotie, senior pastor of the Family of God Church Worldwide Ministries, says the #EndSARS protest is a divine intervention to awaken the “moribund spirit of the Nigerian brotherhood”.
For about 14 days, protesters throughout the nation demonstrated towards police brutality and extra-judicial killings.
In an announcement on Friday, Okotie mentioned “the ability that now approaches is neither political, non secular, ethnic nor even – terrestrial”.
“Relatively, it devolves from the Creator who endowed man as a free ethical agent,” he mentioned.
“The present youth agitation have to be construed on this context. It’s an extra-terrestrial phenomenon. It’s a divine intervention to resuscitate the moribund kindred spirit of the Nigerian brotherhood.
“To aver that this motion is politically motivated is to undergo jejune partisan stimuli emanating from a reprehensible perennial insensitivity.
“It’s not directed towards any political social gathering. It’s an altercation with the established order; it’s a vitilitigation towards a long time of management ineptitude and mediocrity. And now they’ve gone public.
“They bear witness now to the political imbalances and financial disequilibrium which have characterised the chequered pavement of our stroll in the direction of nationhood.
“They bear witness to the stratification of the Nigerian society that enables the circumstabience of corruption by osmosis.
“They bear witness to a system that has elevated corruption to an establishment of byzantine complexity.
“The bear witness to a system that has jettisoned their goals and aspirations into the catacombs of oblivion. And now they rise towards the forces of dissatisfaction, disillusionment and despondency from taking their souls in captive hopelessness.
“These younger persons are not rebellious dissidents. Relatively they’re emissaries of posterity. Galvanized by the indomitable spirit of the Nigerian psyche and the relentless cry of posterity, they’ve develop into veritable devices within the arms of future to chart a sensible path for the Nigerian renaissance.
“Nigeria is about to be reborn. For certainly, change derives from a vertical impetus that interprets right into a horizontal motion or exodus.
“When the season comes the agitation turns into ubiquitous. And when the time comes the mandate turns into an crucial.
“Untrained within the artwork of mob opposition, bereft of navy self-discipline and partisan – fanaticism, they march on with their lungs stuffed with the breath of patriotic want and their lips pregnant with nationalistic hearth, hoping for a greater tomorrow. They shun ethnicity, faith, the polarization of sophistication distinction and geo-political sentiments.
“And as brothers and sisters in peaceable arms they march in the direction of the good aim of an rising nation. They march as an unconscripted military certain by the commonality of being joint heirs of our nationwide patrimony.
Okotie appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to be a “father now and never a commander-in-chief and deal with this matter with conciliatory disposition”.
