Today we hear of great men and leader in Africa and around the world that has fight and preach for independent, peace, freedom, justices for their country to be liberated from the oppressors and authoritarian we have men like Mandela of South Africa (Apartheid icon), Nkrumah, Kofi Annan, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and other great heroes who have stand for what they believe in, who’s focus where not lost even in the midst of pain and hardship from their oppressors they were determine to achieved that which they stand for. This same heroism as being exhibited by the head pastor of the Synagogue church of all nation, TB Joshua, only the ignorant and prejudiced will question the fact that TB Joshua is a national hero in Nigeria even with all the hatred and persecution, just as the biblical Moses in is days, prophet TB Joshua have remain an icon of Peace and Love both in is nation and the international community, the prophet is setting a part for world religion peace, which have divided the world right from the unset of creation.
It’s seem to be mystery to many who are knowledgeable to the history of Nigerian especially on the subject matter of religion intolerance from both the two dominated religions group, the Muslim and Christian, from the North and Southern part of Nigeria respectively. It have never be hard that both religion group gather under one umbrella (in a church) to talk of love for peaceful coexistence in the nation. As we all know, this took place at the synagogue church of all nation were the inexplicable visit of the Northern (dominated by Muslim) youth group, known as the Arewa Youth Forum the umbrella organisation of other northern Youth organisation in Nigeria visit the synagogue church of all nation for the sake of love and peaceful coexistence of both harm of Faithful’s in the nation they came after a wide consultation among their folks, to present an award to Prophet TB Joshua, the only southern Christian whom they deem his fitted for this award was presented with the Award of Ambassador of Peace along side with the Grand Patronage of the Arewa Youth Forum.
Nigeria as at today is in the edge of division, even with the CIA’s prophesy of doom in 2015 is still fresh in the mind of every one, and the tension from both the North, South South and the South East part of Nigeria, by the BokoHaram, Niger delta militant and Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) respectively make it seem that Nigeria may never remain the same again after or even before the 2015 election. But above all, the nation is destined to remain and indivisible entity, Nigeria will never be divided, many great and developed nation in the world today experience different internal crisis that almost lead to breakage and division of those nations (America Civil war is a good example) at the end of all their internal crisis, this nations sees the need for unity and peaceful coexistence. Nigeria as a Nation have a great mission not just in Africa but in the world at large, all this present crisis today are part of God’s master plan to elevate the nation to is rightful place in the comity of nation, just as it is being called the “Giant of Africa”.
As the Prophet always say, “my mother told me when your prayer is not answered look at your love work, we have pray, we have hope now it is time to act love, let love lead”. it is time for the world and the nation of Nigeria to let love lead, lets follow the Love train of TB Joshua, for peace to return to Nigeria, let’s follow the train that we take the nation to its destiny. Just as the National President of the Arewa Youth Forum, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambo, rightly said they have picked Prophet TB Joshua as a leader to bring back the lost love in Nigeria. Let’s allow TB Joshua to leads the way, it is time for everyone to follow for the sake of peace and unity.
Both Politicians and the religious leaders in Nigeria need to wake up from their slumber of hatred and prejudices against the ministry of TB Joshua, as at today it is all clear that it is only TB Joshua that can lead both the Muslim and Christian Faithfully in the nation on the part of love and peaceful coexistence. The quicker the leaders recognise this fact the better for the nation to recover from the present challenges of insurgent, bombing and killing.
This award presentation to the prophet goes a long way to tell the international community that Christian and Muslim per say are not the problem of Nigeria both Love, understand and tolerance need to be restore to is rightful place in the heart of the leaders and citizens of the nation. Today we have a group popularly call civilian JTF in the north who are working side by side with the military to restore peace in the troubled state in the north and this group of civilians are Muslim. This is to tell you and me that religion is not the problem of Nigeria but love and understanding need to take its rightful place in the heart of all. There is still great hope for Nigeria, there is no course for fear or panic, love need to be restore, let’s act love, let’s do love, let love lead, with Love in the heart of all, Nigeria and other nation of the world with internal crisis will experience peace.
