In what appeared to be a surprise drama, former Chief Security Officer to late General Sani Abacha, Maj. Hamza Al-Mustapha, and founder of the newly floated political party, Green Party of Nigeria (GMP), last Sunday made a surprise appearance at the grand finale of the four-day international crusade organised by the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries in Mgbidi, Oru West Local Government Area of Imo State.

Al-Mustapha said his mission to the Christian gathering was to appeal to the General Overseer of the Lord Chosen, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, to acknowledge with a particular interest the problem in Nigeria at this point in time as they were snowballing into something bigger, pleading passionately to the Muoka to come to the rescue of the 19 states of Northern Nigeria that are incessantly experiencing crises.

He enumerated the problems plaguing the country to include “corruption, terrorism and high unemployment rate. “Our brothers and sister are dying across waters, our education system is nothing to write home about, infrastructure is nowhere to be found, so many promises but not fulfilled, too much money but nothing to show for it, institutional decay, nepotism, gender inequality problems and all that,” he added.

He said therefore that it was high time Nigerians resorted to the likes of Muoka to seek help and direction for the country and be free from the instabilities confronting the country.

Al-Mustapha regretted that the Northern states were presently bedeviled with so many social problems, and requires sincere and honest people like Muoka, who can direct and pass the right messages to the people and as well pray for a turnaround in Nigeria.

According to him, “We want Pastor Muoka to extend his evangelism to the North to change the situation there for good. If we allow terrorism to get deep rooted, it may affect other parts of Nigeria. Besides, people are dying every day. So, there is need to bring in place people who have the capacity to bring Nigeria out of its present situation.

Describing the church leader as an embodiment of humility and a distinguished personality who radiates all known and unknown qualities of a true leader, Mustapha said: “The essence of any leadership in life rests on the provision of hope to the people when their confidence is lost and providing that confidence when the people no longer have hope anywhere else. The Lord’s Chosen Ministries has an anchorman of such capacity.”

The ex-soldier noted that life is not measured by the amount of money, cars or houses one has, but by the number of lives affected positively.

“Life is not measured by the riches in your pocket nor the number of houses, castles or palaces that you have and not by the power that you have but it is measured from the point of view of people appreciating and smiling when they see you and when they hear of you. The Lord Chosen General Overseer, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, is one of those people. I see in him humility, simplicity, wisdom, responsibility cheerfulness, kindness and of courses faith and wisdom.”

Speaking further, Mustapha hinted that in kindness and wisdom, when he was being persecuted in 2009, and kept for 15 years going through torture, Muoka made intercessory prayers on his behalf till he got freedom.

“In the mid-way of my persecution, the distinguished religious leader sent people to pray for me. He was also praying for me without minding the leadership that was persecuting me. And as I was going through the travails, through the kindness and wisdom with which he showed me, I saw a lot of things happening, and eventually, God Almighty granted me freedom,” he stated.
