Laniyi said the essence of the RCCG’s global walk is to plead for God’s mercy upon Nigeria for a seamless transition of power from the incumbent to the incoming leaders.

Praying for mercy all over the nation from the Federal Capital Territory to the states, local government areas and wards, Laniyi said any power standing against Nigeria to make it ungovernable will be removed by God.

Further assuring that there is power when the people of goodwill come together to intercede on behalf of the nation, Laniyi said that there is an anointing released and that the prayer of agreement is always a powerful one and has never failed.

His words:

“The prayer of agreement is so powerful, there is an anointing that is released when we come together.

“God has not called us to operate in isolation, it is a body thing, God is a God of mercy and He will show us great mercy.”

Also speaking to journalists after the walk, Pastor Emmanuel Munero said RCCG chose the last Sunday preceding the election to pray mercy of God upon Nigeria.

He assured that the prayers made globally have been answered by God and there is a renewed hope for new things to happen in Nigeria.

His words:

“We hope to see great changes in our economy, our naira has been losing value over the years, and we believe that after this election, surely there will be a positive turn.

“Also, we want to see a change in our security system, we want peace and tranquillity to reign supreme over Nigeria.

“We also want to have great leaders who we can be proud of as a nation. Great leaders who will show great examples for us even as a people; and the young ones and generations to come will have great role models that will be charting the cause of this country positively for us after this coming election.”

What RCCG has done differently in preparation for the 2023 election

Munero said the church was on the frontline of the activities and preparation for the 2023 general election.

He said:

“God has answered our prayers every time we pray but one thing is God will not do for us what we need to do for ourselves and what we are doing differently this time is to do a lot of sensitisation, ensure that everybody around us registered and be part of what is happening.

“We always choose the wrong leaders when the right people refuse to vote but this time around everybody has taken responsibility which is to get our voters’ cards and surely come on Saturday we are all going to vote for the man who is the choice of God for the nation Nigeria.”
