A top ranking Nigerian Army General, Major General Victor Ezugwu has stated that it was time to nation sought divine intervention in the fight against terrorism.
The General who is the Acting Commander of TRADOC Minna made this known during an interdenominational service on Sunday.
“It is time to seek divine intervention for success in all operations in line with the motto of the Nigerian Army – Victory is from God alone”, he said.
Nigerians of different faiths have been praying for the security challenges in the country to end, but prayers alone don’t win wars. There must be corresponding actions on the part of men too. The war against insurgency in the country has been plagued by corruption, tribalism, religious bigotry, amongst others.
It is hard to see how any prayer can work in the face of all these.
