The President of Christ Apostolic Church, Nigeria and Overseas, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele, has called for prayers for those in authority in line with biblical obligation as stated in the scriptures. 

"We thank the Lord for the peaceful conduct of the General Elections as well as the transition rites. In line with our Biblical obligation, we shall continue to pray for those in authority, 'that we may lead quiet and peaceful lives in all godliness and reverence' (1 Timothy 2:1,2). Nonetheless, we shall also continue to insist on good and godly governance while performing our civic responsibilities," the President said.

The CAC President gave this charge while delivering his President's Address on Tuesday, September 20, 2023 at the ongoing CAC 2023 Pastors' Conference holding at Joseph Ayo Babalola Memorial International Miracle Camp, Ikeji Arakeji, Osun State.

"May this nation experience God again so that we can enjoy peace and prosperity, as well as truth and justice. May our leaders receive the grace to know that which is right and the courage to do it, in Jesus' mighty name," he prayed.

Meanwhile, after his Presidential Address, the CAC President, in an interview with newsmen also expressed optimism that Nigerians would soon see positive changes under the administration of Nigeria's President, Bola Tinubu.

Pastor Oladele who assured that positive changes would occur if the administration of Tinubu was not sabotaged, appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the government, declaring that there is hope for Nigeria.

He said the current economic hardship was not peculiar to Nigerians adding that it was something needed at this time if it would lead to the betterment of life of Nigerians.

According to him, “But is it something we need this time, I believe yes if it will lead to betterment of life of Nigerians. Life is not easy. If the road is rough we have an end in sight. I believe if we are upright, seek the face of the Lord, and turn from our wicked ways in Nigeria there is a kind of light at the end of this tunnel.

"If we go by the promise made by President Tinubu, we will see some positive changes. I see him as a serious individual. We can see some changes in the few months that he has been there. We pray that he will not be sabotaged by some individuals. In the next four years, if we are patient, we believe there will be some changes.

"We have always told those in government that the reason they were elected is to see to the prosperity of the people. If they fail in that duty, they will stand before God one day. God is going to ask them one day how they conducted themselves while in a position of power.

"We are not making it in terms of security. We have a long way to go. The security architecture must be rejigged. The country has to employ more hands. We are under the police. We are told that a local government in Niger State is bigger than the entire southeast, how many policemen do we have in that kind of place. We can do better than what we have," he said.
