Stop cursing Nigeria, start prophesying for a better nation, Cleric tells Nigerians

By 'Gbenga Bankole

The District Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Bethel, Toronto Canada, Pastor Amos Dada has urged Nigerians to stop cursing Nigeria, but rather should start prophesying for a better nation.

He said curses are negative pronouncements that affect the victim in the negative way, adding that it is a solemn utterance intended to invoke a supernatural power to inflict harm or punishment on someone or something. 

The Cleric implored Nigerians to start prophesying (praying) for a better Nigeria because what you say to God is what God will do to Nigeria (Numbers 14:28). 

According to him, the church should use a prophetic voice and physical engagement to turn Nigeria around by praying for peace and wisdom for government to rule Nigeria well. 

He urged citizens to "pray for God to deal with the enemies of Nigeria. Pray that God will uproot the sons of the bond woman that sees Nigeria as their birthright and install the promised sons who will rule Nigeria well. Pray for transformation of Nigeria from underdeveloped nation to a developed nation that will take its position among the commonwealth of prosperous nations. Pray that the blood of the innocent ones will cry for vengeance and as Cain did not escape the wrath of God, the perpetrators of this nation shall never escape God’s wrath of justice."

Pastor Dada who stated this in a write-up entitled "I See a New Nigeria" advised the Nigerian Church to have a new strategy.

He explained: "if Muslims are focusing on taking the South, Christians should focus on taking the North. The approach is what will be different, while they are using force we shall use love, if they are using guns we shall use our Bible. Instead of using billions of dollars to build church buildings in the south let us use it to build hospitals, health centres, schools, shelters, orphanages, tertiary institutions in the north. Let us back this up with prayer. It is never too late to carry out what I call Jesuslization of the North if the North is bent on Islamization of the south. The advantage we have is that Jesus the Maker of the world, the Captain of the Host of heaven who has never lost a battle is leading us. He promised “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” He can be trusted. We are on the winning side."

The Cleric noted that the government must perform their statutory roles to provide security, diversify economy, create an enabling environment, eliminate corruption and be willing to integrate the youth to the ruling class.

"I see a new Nigeria. What you see is what you will possess. I see a better economy. A better police force, a better army. I see a better legislative house, judiciary and a responsive executive that will no more waste the future leaders of Nigeria. See a Nigeria where there is no more corruption. See a nation that is developed with the youth engaged in viable employment and no more wasted. A nation with a youth that is filled with creative and innovative minds. See a nation where our economy is diversified and we are no more dependent on crude oil. A nation where there is rule of law. A nation devoid of sacred cows and impunity. A nation where our youth will no more be wasted by the people that are supposed to protect them. See a nation where innocent blood will no more be shed on the streets of Nigeria. See a nation where our Green-White-Green flag will no more be stained with the blood of our youth.  Like John in the Island of Patmos, (wherever, you are as a Nigerian or friends of Nigeria), see how God “will wipe every tear from their (our) eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain”. All these things are gone forever.” A new Nigeria has come," he said.


  1. We thank God for the blessings of a Man of God with a vision. Daddy, you are such an inspiration and we pray that the Lord will continue to honour his words in your life. Nigeria will fulfil his glorious calling, when others are talking about a casting down and out we will be talking about a Nigeria being lifted up unto Glory. Nigeria will Arise and Shine for your Light has come ijn.

  2. Amen in Jesus name. Thank you sir.
