I am not sure there will be an election, Nigeria may not live if killings continue - Adeboye Warns

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has warned the government of Nigeria to urgently end sectarian killings in different parts of the country, stressing that Nigeria as it is presently constituted may cease to exist if the killings continue.

Pastor Enoch Adeboye made the declaration at the May 2018, "Holy Ghost service" titled, "Stronger Than Your Enemies 5" with a sub title, "Habitation of the Almighty",
he also warned that election 2019 may not hold if the murderous attack continues.
The cleric reiterate the fact that a nation may survive a civil war but no nation can survive a religious war and remain the same. 
Narrating how he felt in Germany when herdsmen stormed St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Benue State and killed Catholic priests and 17 others in the church, he told the large crowd that he was unusually quiet and his wife of about 50 years plus was curious. 

"I said there is no father who would lose 19 children in a day that will not be quiet. She said what do you mean, because she hadn’t heard the news that in a church, somebody went in and shot 19 people. 
"It doesn’t matter the denomination…by the special grace of God, all Christians in Nigeria call me daddy. So when any of them dies, it's my son or daughter that is dead," Adeboye said. 

He therefore called on the Buhari led government to urgently end the killings before it turned into a religious war. 

"I am going to ask you to join me in prayer, because unless these killings stop, and stop immediately, even Nigeria may not live. I am not talking about individuals now, I am talking about Nigeria itself … A bishop asked me not too long ago, 'Daddy, has God told you who win the next election?'  "I said, Sir, I am not even sure yet there will be an election. Because unless these killings stop there may be no elections next year. 'Are you prophesying , Daddy?' No, no! I am not prophesying. I am just reasoning. Because nobody will want to go out to vote if they are not sure they will be able to return home safely," he explained. 

He further stated,
"it's a terrible thing. A nation may survive a civil war, but no nation can survive a religious war and remain the same. That Nigeria may live these killings must stop. "So all of you who love Nigeria, I want to rise on your feet, and cry to God with all your heart, and say, Father, let the killings stop."

For Nigeria to Live, the killings must stop.
Thank you Daddy.
