Monarch Tasks Nigerians On Peace


The National Organising Secretary/South South Chairman of Association of Christian Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (AOETRON), King (Dr) Leslie N. Eke, Nyerisi Eli Woji, Eze Oha Evo III of Evo Kingdom, Eze Gbakagbaka, has called on Nigerians to always seek God’s face, if they must enjoy peace in the land.
He said this during its national prayer summit at his palace last week in Woji in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
King Eke noted that all the crisis in the land would cease forthwith if the people could sincerely seek God’s presence.
The paramount ruler of Woji also noted that if palace fellowships were strengthened that it would go a long way in restoring peace in the land.
According to him, since traditional rulers are the custodians of the people, that the nation would experience lasting peace, if all palaces are tied to God.
He recalled that the prayer meeting was active in the eastern part of the country, as he called on traditional rulers who were yet to join the group to do so in a hurry.
The coordinator of the association, Apostle Stephen Ushie, who spoke on the theme: “Peace in the Land,” said peace was the Panacea for development and progress.
Ushie, who took his text from Leviticus 26 v6, maintained that where there was peace that the hand of God was involved.
He stressed that the only way Nigeria could enjoy peace was to have a relationship with God in order to draw down His peace.
He further emphasised on the need for Kings to make God their King, if they did not want to suffer what he described as retribution.
The Amayanabo of Kalabari Kingdom, Prof. TJT Princewill, who was in attendance, said that the idea of palace fellowship was a welcomed development.
He expressed the view that without God that no nation or kingdom could enjoy peace.
Meanwhile, the Eze Gbakagbaka, has called on Rivers people to always work in partnership with the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike (POS)Africa, to ensure that his plans to sustain peace in the state was not defeated.
Prayers were said on behalf of the Governor, the State and South South as well as the country at large.
