Politicians and those in leadership positions have been called upon to rededicate themselves to God as that is the only solution to the myriad of challenges confronting the country.

The General Overseer , Tree of Life Ministry, the Reverend Dada Obi, made the call while speaking with Radio Nigeria in Nanka, Orumba North Llocal Government Area of Anambra State.

The Reverend Obi cautioned against rushing to collect drugs for COVID-19 cure saying that such medicine must be clinically scrutinize by the Federal Government to avoid administering vaccines that would cause more harm to Africans.

He said the nation must imbibe the fear of God and ask for his forgiveness over the wanton waste of innocent lives of poor citizens who struggled daily for survival.
