Two prominent Oyo State monarchs, Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun and the Olugbon of Orile-Igbon, Oba Francis Alao, have called on religious leaders across the country to intensify prayers on the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

The royal fathers made the call during the courtesy call on Oba Balogun by the spiritual head of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church (C&S) Movement Worldwide (Ayo Ni o), Baba Aladura, Prophet Samuel Abidoye, on Saturday, as part of the programmes ushering in the 2022 Annual Convention, holding at the movement’s campground (Galilee) at Orile-Igbon.

The Olubadan thanked the C&S Movement, (Ayo Ni o) leadership for the visit in a statement by his Personal Assistant (Media), Oladele Ogunsola, and enjoined the church to intercede for the country on the general elections to hold next year, stressing that “the elections mean very much to the country and would go a very long way in shaping the future of the country either for better or for worse.”

He was also full of appreciation to his brother Oba Olugbon of Orile-Igbon for accompanying the church leadership to his palace, a move he described as sincere and genuine support for the church and its campsite located in the Olugbon’s domain.

Oba Balogun urged Oba Alao to continue to give the church all the necessary support that would allow the work of God to be properly done, adding that by ensuring the church’s well-being in your domain, you are attracting supernatural blessings in the manifold to the land and your people.”

In his remark, the Olugbon of Orile-Igbon, Oba Francis Alao, who spoke in the same vein with Oba Balogun on the 2023 general elections, described the exercise as an opportunity to reshape the country’s destiny, saying elections present a very good opportunity to make decisions that could halt the dangerous trend of negativity and put things on the right track.

Alao stated: “It is in a bid to achieve this very crucial desire that i join Kabiyesi Olubadan to covet your prayers because it is said in the Bible that there’s nothing, we can get on earth without such being released to us by our Heavenly Father.

“So, our desire for a peaceful election and the right choice of leaders can only be attained by heavenly sanction. At your convention, help our country with fervent prayers on this our request and by the grace of God, our prayers would be answered,” the monarch added.

Prophet Abidoye in a short remark, said the purpose of the visit, the first by the church since Olubadan ascended the throne last March, is to identify with him as the monarch under whose watch is the capital city of the state where the campsite of his church is situated, and principally to pray for him for longevity in good health and prosperity for Ibadanland, which he did.

Abidoye explained that the choice of Orile-Igbon, where the campsite of the church is sited, was divine and it was after the divine directive that the site was named Galilee.

He commended the Olugbon for his support and cooperation and promised that the church would not relent in praying for the country, noting that the efficacy of prayers in the affairs of the country could not be glossed over as the situation of the nation may have been worse if not for intercessory prayers.
