Okupe Tells Osinbajo... "God, Fasting and Prayer Can Make Nigeria Great"

Dr. Doyin Okupe, former special assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs says God, fasting and prayer can “certainly” make Nigeria great.

On Wednesday, acting President Yemi Osinbajo had said that Nigeria cannot grow solely on the prayers and fasting of its citizens.

“No matter how much you pray and fast, our country cannot grow without some of us deciding to do the hard work that makes nations work,” Osinbajo had said.

Reacting to Osinbajo's position, Okupe said he disagrees with the acting president’s standpoint.

He said although there is no substitute for hard work, “that alone cannot make a nation great”.

“I beg to disagree with VP. Yes there is no substitute for hard work but that alone can’t make a nation great. But God, fasting and prayer certainly will.

“We can neither limit the extent of God’s power nor can we compartmentalize his area of influence. God is sovereign.

“Jehoshaphats army did not have to fight. They did not lift a finger. God fought their battles. They did not have to lift a finger yet had victory.”

- Prayer and fasting to God can change our situation if we are truly righteous, not just pretenders.

  3. I know some people will misinterprete the Vp.He only mean that you can't only be praying and fasting without working and think things will change. Chinese proverb says as you are working you are praying.

  4. How many times or days have you fasted for Nigeria? @ doyin okupe. If you like, fast from now till kingdom comes without doing what is necessary, nothing will happen.
    It is after you have done your bit that God will bless what you have done.

  9. He refused to learn from their last investment in prayers and fasting for Jonathan's return.
    You will be wasting prayers if you refuse to walk in God's righteous path @okupe
