“Jesus did not come to this world for Christian alone but for sinners across the world in order to give us freedom from the shackles of this sinful world.”
He called on Nigerians to constituted authorities and be law-abiding citizens: “I am aware Nigerians are passing through hard times but it is just for a while. I urge every citizen of this country to be law abiding and obey laid down rules”.
