@Mckren,

While you cannot completely remove a nation form the faith of its citizens, you can also not separate the faith of the citizens from the fate of the nation.  Everyone who has attained any level of sucees has done so based on a premise.  Okotie is where he is today based on his faith and the principles of life he imbibed from the bible.  You can not separate him from his faith, the same way you cannot separate Ya'radua and the likes from their faith.

As you have mentioned however, the sole document that binds our country together is the constitution.  Okotie has made this abundantly clear and said he will not allow any prayers (either by moslems, Christians, traditional worshippers etc) at his State functions.  Rather, Stae functions wholud beginning and end with the National Anthem.  This is someone who understnads what nationhood is all about.

I'm surprised you have no idea what he stands for since he has been saying the same things for the past 6 years or thereabout and not just during election time.  Here is a link to the manifestoe you asked for:  http://www.freshdemocraticparty.com/freshManifesto.pdf

good talk fellas. i was just thinking of how he can possibly manage his sheeps and chase political ambition under the guise of God's call, what he would tell them if he looses this time. i mean he should be more realistic about his real ambition. no doubts he is brilliant and vibrant enough to run a country but its not a child's play to even become councillor of a ward of less than 10, 000 inhabitans not to talk of Nigeria. i think if he wants to be a politician he should and if its music, teaching or preaching it will be wise he chooses a profession and face it squarely.

i dont mean bad. i respect this chap

That will only make sense when the person is God's annointed, afterall Pastor King was seen as one until recently.

God Bless you TayoD.

God speaks many times and the timing for the person might not be right, We also need to be careful about the way we speak about men of God.

Remember Touch not my anointed and do my Prophet no harm, so Please watch how u talk.

@Agboola1,

Where did you learn your theology from? So you are telling us that any form of failure is a sign of God's absence?  Are you reading the same Bible I read? 

Just so you do not spread this lie, let me show you instances in scriptures that are contrary to the thought you are propagating:

1.  In Genesis 15:13, God told Abraham that his children will be in a land of captivity for 400 years.  However, the affliction lasted for 430 years - See Exodus 12:40-41.

2.  Please pick up your Bible and read Judges 20.  God told the entire nation of Isreal to war against Benjamin because of their sin.  Despite God's go-ahead, Isreal was defeated twice before God eventually gave them victory the thrid time.

There are situations like this throughout the Bible, but since this is not a religious forum, I hesitate to discuss it in-depth.

However, the principle is stated very clearly in Habbakuk 2:3 - For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

God's modus operandi is different from man's.  God declares the end even before the beginning.  That the guy isn't Presido today does not make him or God a liar. The 'end' which God speaks of may linger, but it will surely come to pass!!!

Don't let's be quick to say things we know nothing about.

Thank you for saying God does not lie and God does not fail its chosen people, so why is OKOTIE still here? personal agenda.

God does not lie and Okotie is trying to turn God into a liar and based on this alone I dare say that he is not God sent or that he may be listening to the voice of a smaller god.
