The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo has stated that no country of the Western world has solution to Nigeria’s many problems.
Oyedepo said Nigerians were still the solutions to the many problems confronting the country.
The cleric, therefore, warned Nigerians against expecting panacea to Nigeria’s developmental and contemporary headaches from the international community.
Oyedepo, who doubles as the Chancellor of Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State, gave this charge on Sunday at the third inaugural lecture of the institution.
The lecture was delivered by a professor of Material and Corrosion Engineering of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Science and Engineering of the institution, Prof. Makanjuola Oki.
Oyedepo, who was represented by the Landmark University’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Aize Obayan, called on leaders and people of Nigeria and Africa to get back to work and stop waiting on the international community for solution.
According to him, researches must be solution-driven and innovative.
Oyedepo said, “We must find solutions to our particular challenges. No one will do it for us.”
Also speaking at the event, the Vice-Chancellor of Summit University, Offa, Kwara State, Prof. Hussein Oloyede called on Nigerians to show more commitment and loyalty to the country.
Oloyede said, “Whenever you have a challenge and you do not think of how to solve the challenge among yourself, you are not likely to solve it.
“The panacea that you are likely to be given when you go outside is what relates to people outside, the experiences outside, those experiences may not, necessarily, be able to solve the problem here.
“But discuss the problems and you’ll see that there are people in this country knowledgeable and forthright who will solve it. So, let us solve our problems.”
