For the country to combat the myriads of security challenges currently plaguing it, Nigerians must begin to take more actions and stop calling for million-man prayers, Chairman Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Lagos Chapter Apostle Adebayo Abiola has said.

Abiola popularly known as Baba Aladura spoke with reporters shortly after the conferment of Diploma in Theology on 12 bible scholars who underwent training at the Bible and Exemplified Customs Ministry in Alausa. According to him, it was time actions were taken to correct anomalies in the education and other critical sectors of the economy, calling for unity of purpose among the people.

“Prayer will not solve insecurity. It is taking action that will. All hands must be on deck. The various agencies must do their jobs and the people must volunteer information, perform their civic duties and things will get better. All those calling for prayers should know that is not how it works. God has his servants he called and when they pray, he answers. They should seek out those elders who are close to God for consistent prayers but like I said, prayer alone will not do the job. We must act,” he said.
