The General Evangelist, Worldwide of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Prophet Samuel Kayode Abiara has advised Nigerians, particularly those in Lagos State, to avoid so-called “prophets of doom.”


He gave the sermon during the New Year Service in Lagos House, Marina, which was held concurrently by Christian and Muslim faithful at both the Chapel of Christ the King for Christian faithful and the State House Mosque for Muslim believers.

Prophet Abiara prayed for Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his family, members of the State Executive Council, and Lagos State during Christian worship. He encouraged Nigerians not to believe doomsayers who claim Nigeria and its leaders at the national and state levels are doomed.

Prophet Abiara said: “Don’t listen to prophets of doom against Nigeria, our nation and the leaders. Don’t listen to prophets of doom against Lagos State. The future of Nigeria and Lagos State is bright,”

“The Bible tells us that when the righteous are in power, the people will rejoice. We are rejoicing in Lagos State because we have a Godly governor. If I can assume the role of the good people of Lagos State, I will like to pass a message across to Governor Sanwo-Olu that we love you, we appreciate you and we are proud to be your subjects. We thank God for what He is doing in your life.

“Mr. Governor, you have been running this administration very well. You have done very well but your tenure is going gradually and as another election is coming, there shall be a new song. You will finish well and you will be celebrated. Like Lateef Jakande was celebrated, you will be celebrated and the glory of the future would be greater.

“People will decide the kind of Governor that they have. So people of Lagos should better open their eyes and pray for another governor like this and I pray that God Almighty will give you the grace even to continue in the name of Jesus Christ. If it is a political statement, I say it with every sense of confidence that God Almighty will give you the possibility to perfect what you have started in Jesus name”,
