Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, has expressed that Nigerians who fail to commit the security situation into the hands of God could be guilty of indirectly prolonging the war against insurgency.
He made this statement in an article on Thursday titled, ‘The Decent for the Indecent, the Just for the Unjust,’ on his Facebook page.
Adesina noted a short viral video showed a soldier and four others singing that victory is from God alone.
The Presidential aide, however, expressed that many Nigerians had failed to understand that only God gives victory.
“But victory is from God alone. That is what we must realise as Nigerians. Do we ever pray for our troops in the frontlines? Do we remember those youths, our pride, and strength, faced by death daily, as we sleep in the comfort of our homes, ensconced in the tender bosom of our wives.
“As we pray; God give me money. Give me a car. Give me a promotion. Kill my enemies. Do it now. Do we ever remember our soldiers? Ere you left your room this morning, did you think to pray…did you pray for our soldiers? Victory comes from God alone. If you don’t pray, you may be guilty of prolonging the war in North-East, North-west, North-central, and all over Nigeria,” part of the article read.
He further expressed that rather than seek divine help for security, some people have become wailers.
